The Alumni Venture Fund (AVF) is the only Jewish mini-grant program of its kind that enables peer-to-peer funding and support. Grants are awarded to projects that alumni lead in their home communities and around the world. Since the AVF's launch in 2005, the Bronfman community has distributed over $180,000 to 90 impactful projects.
The BYFI alumni community is composed of an exceptional group of young adults. Through their personal and professional pursuits, our alumni exhibit their commitment to the core values of the BYFI program: Jewish learning, pluralism, engagement with Israel and social responsibility. The BYFI Alumni Venture Fund enables the alumni community to support their peers with funding and technical assistance.
