The largest grants from the San-Francisco-based foundation include $1.4 million to Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston over four years for a communitywide teen initiative; up to $3 million over three years to Repair the World for a fellowship program and efforts to expand Jewish service-learning opportunities; and up to $1.4 million over three years to the Israel Institute to expand and enrich Israel studies on college campuses.

Since 2006, the foundation has invested more than $300 million in Jewish education.
