Make It Happen Fund

Hillel's Make It Happen Fund supports students in transforming their ideas into reality! 


We encourage you to think big and think broadly. We're interested in innovative ideas that will create new opportunities for students to discover and connect to Jewish rituals, Jewish culture, and Jewish values.


Examples of potential Make It Happen Fund projects include:

  • The creation of a new or alternative themed Passover Seder 

  • The creation of a Challah baking event in your dorm, fraternity and sorority

  • Coverage of travel costs and/or the registration fee to attend a conference/event for grandchildren of Holocaust survivors

  • The creation of a new event that promotes social justice, philanthropy or open dialogue 


We will fund your idea up to $250. Applications for a Make it Happen Fund grant are accepted on a rolling basis.
