The Good People Fund (GPF) has announced nearly $1.8 million in Israel- and U.S.- focused grants to support social entrepreneurs and advance grassroots organizations addressing critical social and humanitarian needs.
From poverty and women’s empowerment, to eldercare and youth-at-risk – the grants further GPF’s commitment to innovative, impactful work that improves and lifts lives and communities and are models for replication elsewhere.
Since its inception in 2008, Millburn, NJ-based GPF has directed over $13 million to more than 140 nonprofit organizations in Israel and the United States. In the fiscal year ending June 30, it raised over $2 million.
“In each case, individuals saw a pressing need and developed an impassioned and unique way to address it,” said Naomi Eisenberger, GPF’s Co-Founder and Executive Director. “GPF funding and mentoring provide them visibility and recognition and hope that others will join in supporting their work and deepening their impact.”
