On October 19, 2010 Slingshot presented the sixth annual edition of Slingshot: A Resource Guide for Jewish Innovation, an annual compilation featuring 50 inspirational organizations in Jewish life in North America:
eJewish Philanthropy reported, "According to Will Schneider, the Director of Slingshot, '2010 was the most competitive year that Slingshot has experienced. Not only are there a greater number of applicants each year, but the extent and complexity of each applicant’s impact has increased. The feedback from the evaluators told us that the guide could easily have been filled with twice as many inspirational projects, so these 50 had to really shine to rise to the top.' "
Congratulations to ROIers whose organizations were named to the Slingshot 50!
