Natan Grants for ROI Entrepreneurs 


Natan Fund, a NY-based giving circle, invites members of ROI Community who are spearheading groundbreaking initiatives that create new access points to Jewish life around the world to submit proposals for the Natan Grants for ROI Entrepreneurs grant opportunity.

Applicants may apply for grants ranging from $5,000 to $12,000.
With this grant opportunity, Natan seeks to support individual social entrepreneurs, community builders, and very early-stage programs that engage young Jews in Jewish religion, culture, and community in new and effective ways.


Applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • The applicant must be a member of ROI Community.
  • The project must be in the early stages of program development.
  • The proposed project has substantive Jewish content and is intended to engage people (especially young and currently disengaged people) in Jewish life in new and creative ways.
  • The project has never received Natan funding before (with the exception of current Natan Grant for ROI Entrepreneurs grantees).
