Young Jewish adults with a vision to create cultural, spiritual, educational, service, and community-building projects for their peers can begin applying for a 2014 Natan/NEXT Grant for Social Entrepreneurs. Applications will be accepted through March 7th and recipients will be notified in June. Grants of up to $10,000 each will be awarded to projects that demonstrate long-term potential to engage young Jewish adults.
Since 2010, Natan and NEXT have awarded more than 21 social entrepreneur grants, totaling $126,000. From new spiritual communities to a Jewish music festival to a create-your-own haggadah website, past grantees have realized their dreams by creating and building start-up projects to help young Jewish adults explore Jewish life.
Potential applicants can learn more about the Natan/NEXT Grants for Social Entrepreneurs during NEXT’s upcoming webinars. The webinars will take place on February 20, 2014 at 3:00 PM EST and February 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM EST. RSVP for the webinars by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
