Birthright Israel NEXT/Natan Grants for Social Entreprenteurs


Source: Birthright Israel NEXT


Birthright Israel NEXT has partnered with Natan to create the Birthright Israel NEXT/Natan Grants for Social Entrepreneurs. This joint venture aims to provide young Jewish adults who are budding social entrepreneurs with additional grant opportunities for long-term initiatives and/or ongoing programs. Birthright Israel NEXT and Natan seek to fund innovative ideas developed and implemented by young Jewish adults – either on their own or in partnership with existing Jewish organizations and resources.


One of Birthright Israel NEXT’s most important goals is to enable young Jewish adults to create their own events and programs that connect them to other Jews and the larger Jewish community. To that end, Birthright Israel NEXT offers financial grants to help offset the costs of these programs. Examples of programs include, but are not limited to, local Israel advocacy seminars, Jewish cultural events, Israeli culture festivals, social action/Tikkun Olam projects, etc.


All young Jewish adults, aged 30 and under, who live in the US are eligible to apply for the Birthright Israel NEXT/Natan Grants.


Applicants may request up to ten thousand dollars ($10,000) in funding. All funding decisions related to the Birthright Israel NEXT/Natan Grants for Social Entrepreneurs are decided at the sole and exclusive discretion of the Birthright Israel NEXT/Natan Grant Committee. The decisions of the Committee are not subject to appeal.
