The Forward Together grant program

The Forward Together grant program for 2024 is for Sid-Israel member organizations that are invited to apply for a grant of up to NIS 10,000.

Individual members (consultants) can apply for a grant of up to 7000 NIS.

Again this year, out of a desire to help maximize the realization of the organizations' potential, we joined together with the OLAM organization for a joint increased grant: organizations that are members of both Sid and OLAM, will be able to apply for extended support for an additional up to NIS 5,000 (at the expense of the OLAM in Motion grant application for 2024 ).

This joint grant amounts to up to NIS 15,000.

In 2024, the grants will focus on four areas:

  1. Resource development

  2. Building  professional knowledge

  3. Building effective measurement processes

"The support we have received, has been instrumental in achieving a significant milestone in our organization's journey. The grant was specifically allocated to develop the first-ever certificate program in medical clowning, in collaboration with the nursing school of Shamir Hospital. This pioneering initiative was aimed at formalizing the training and integration of medical clowns within healthcare settings, thereby enhancing patient care and supporting the emotional and psychological well-being of patients through humor and compassion.

The grant not only provided the financial resources necessary to launch this unique program but also affirmed the importance of innovative approaches to healthcare, encouraging us to pursue our vision with confidence.

We appreciate SID-Israel and OLAM's commitment to continuous improvement and the impactful support extended to organizations like ours. Thank you once again for your support."
