Our vision

Our vision is a world in which Russian-speaking Jews around the globe readily identify and engage with Jewish values, culture, and ethics.

As we recognize the unique challenges facing Russian-speaking Jews, we place emphasis on the agenda of identity-building and community transformation. In order to achieve systemic change within Russian-speaking Jewish populations, Genesis is committed to going beyond the practice of isolated, one-time grants. Instead, GPG prioritizes capacity-building funding for long-term, wide-scale initiatives.

We believe

Genesis Philanthropy Group believes that achieving a paradigm shift in the field requires entering into strategic partnerships with established non-profits and foundations. We seek to work with the entities that share our mission and that can meaningfully and effectively engage Russian-speaking Jews.

GPG is a proactive grant-making institution that invites organizations to submit proposals based on the needs and trends the foundation identifies in the Russian-speaking Jewish community in accordance with its mission. We do not accept unsolicited proposals.
