The Technical Assistance Collaborative provides support to Chicago-area Jewish organizations to clarify problems resulting from the COVID-19 crisis, identify solutions, and scale recommendations.

About Us

As nonprofit organizations navigate what feels like crisis after crisis, a rapidly changing landscape of needs continues to arise that very few entities have the capacity to address. Local Jewish funders and JUF, in partnership with Boardified, founded the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) to assess and address these emerging needs of organizations.

TAC provides technical support, expertise, and resources through webinars, cohort learning, consultation, and customized support. TAC connects organizations with an array of expertise in areas such as scenario planning, capacity-building, board development, employment law, health and safety, virtual facilitation, technological skill development, and more.

Professional staff and volunteer leaders who participate in these opportunities will gain the skills and tools they need to maximize their missions. Together, we will help our Chicago Jewish community stay strong, connected, and resilient.

To help organizations meet immediate, unique needs brought on by the pandemic, we are now accepting applications for direct assistance.

One-on-one Consulting Support is a matching program connecting organizations with vetted service providers to work through specific operational challenges brought on or accelerated by the pandemic. Engagements with providers are limited in scope to help address these specific needs and provide additional short-term expertise. Applications from eligible organizations are accepted on a rolling basis.

Technological Assistance Microgrants aim to alleviate immediate technological needs and support organizational resiliency during this pandemic by providing up to $2,000 in funding. Applications for technological assistance are now closed.
