Natan Opens New Grant Area: Urban Renewal in Jerusalem

natan logoNatan is now accepting applications in a new grant area focused on urban renewal in Jerusalem. Social entrepreneurs, grassroots initiatives and emerging nonprofit organizations that are spearheading innovative initiatives that revitalize and strengthen Jerusalem as a diverse cultural, spiritual, and educational hub are invited to apply for seed grants of up to $10,000. Preference will be given to initiatives that take creative approaches to building and strengthening community in Jerusalem through arts and culture.

Natan is piloting this new grant area in partnership with Jerusalem Culture Unlimited and Keren Baktana, which are creating several new giving circles in Jerusalem made up of young Jerusalemites. Applicants will have the option of sharing their application with all of the partner giving circles, which might result in additional funding. Each of the circles, however, will be following its own timeline and making independent grant decisions. You can find further information about these grant opportunities on the Jerusalem Culture Unlimted and Keren Baktana websites. This experiment in cross-border giving circle partnership emerges out of Natan’s efforts to strengthen and expand the field of Jewish and Israeli giving circles through Amplifier: The Jewish Giving Circle Movement.
