Natan is now accepting applications in four program areas. All of the necessary information about applying can be found on the How to Apply and Frequently Asked Questions pages of the Natan website. Please make sure to read the Request for Proposals for whichever grant area you plan to apply for. All applicants must have operating budgets below $1.5 million.
Natan’s Confronting Antisemitism committee requests proposals from organizations that are exposing and confronting contemporary antisemitism around the world. Though the committee’s scope and spirit are global, this year Natan especially encourages applicants working on initiatives (i) tackling Europe-based antisemitism, (ii) addressing antisemitism education among teenagers, and (iii) specifically addressing antisemitic issues with non-Jewish audiences.
Natan’s Jewish Connection committee requests proposals from organizations creating innovative models for connecting people, especially disengaged Jews, to Jewish practices and experiences, Jewish culture and ideas, and Jewish networks and communities in North America. These grants are intended to shine a spotlight on new approaches or methodologies that are profoundly innovative.
For a second year, Natan’s Jerusalem grant committee is partnering with the Leichtag Foundation to support innovative grassroots initiatives led by members of the Jerusalem Model, a growing network of 200+ Jerusalem-based activists and social entrepreneurs.
Natan makes small grants (between $5,000 and $12,000) to members of the ROI Community who are spearheading extremely early-stage, innovative projects that are creating new access points to Jewish life in communities around the world. This year, Natan is focusing on initiatives in communities outside of North America and Israel.

About: Natan inspires young philanthropists to become actively engaged in building the Jewish future by giving collaboratively to cutting-edge initiatives in Israel and in Jewish communities around the world.
Natan is a giving circle – a grantmaking foundation where members pool their charitable contributions, set the group’s philanthropic strategy and agenda, and collectively award grants to emerging initiatives, working actively with their leaders to help them grow. Natan believes that educated, engaged, and entrepreneurial philanthropy can transform both givers and grant recipients.
Natan is especially interested in supporting entrepreneurial individuals, startups and fledgling organizations – catalyzing and supporting innovation that begins on the margins of the Jewish organizational world in order to develop new standalone organizations and to infuse innovative thinking into larger, legacy institutions.
