About Natan

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. We believe that educated, engaged, and entrepreneurial philanthropy can transform both givers and grant recipients.

Confronting Antisemitism

Natan’s Confronting Antisemitism committee requests proposals from organizations that are addressing contemporary antisemitism around the world. The committee is particularly interested in proactive approaches that preempt antisemitism.

Applicants could include initiatives that are:
  • developing positive, constructive efforts to understand and expose contemporary manifestations of antisemitism including distinguishing between good faith criticism of Israel and bad faith bigotry that uses criticism as a cover for prejudice;
  • utilizing technology and social media to address antisemitism;
  • building partnerships between Jews and other minority groups - including, but not limited to, the black, Hispanic, Muslim and LGBTQ+ communities - to navigate antisemitism within their respective circles;
  • empowering young individuals (13-23) with the tools, knowledge and critical thinking skills to effectively advocate for themselves and the Jewish people;
  • creating new partnerships between organizations otherwise working independently, with a unified mission of fighting antisemitism.

Natan's Focus

In the spirit of “venture philanthropy,” Natan is especially interested in supporting entrepreneurial individuals, startups and fledgling organizations that have not yet received significant support from major funders and that are independent from larger institutions and organizational structures. Natan seeks to catalyze and support innovation that begins on the margins of the Jewish organizational world, with the twin goals of developing new standalone organizations and infusing innovative thinking into larger, legacy institutions for the long term.
