(Newton, MA)â€”June 24, 2014â€”InterfaithFamily is honored to be selected for the second consecutive year as a core grantee by The Natan Fund, a giving circle based in New York City. The Natan Fund announced Tuesday they will give $953,000 to 54 grantees.
This yearâ€™s grant is part of the organizationâ€™s 11th annual round of grantmaking. Of the 298 applications, 54 grants were distributed and included 10 core grantees, which Natanâ€™s website states are â€śthose organizations most aligned with Natanâ€™s grantmaking mission. Their exceptional leadership develops programs with significant and measurable impact, and they have the potential to make systemic change in the field in which they are working.â€ť The decision-making is a rigorous three-stage process involving Natanâ€™s 57 members on eight grant committees.
â€śWe are so excited to be a Core Grantee of the Natan Fund for the second year in a row and are honored to be in the company of great organizations like G-dcast, Hazon, IKAR, Keshet and Moishe House,â€ť said Jodi Bromberg, President of InterfaithFamily. â€śItâ€™s especially meaningful to us to have young philanthropists recognize the importance of our work.â€ť
InterfaithFamily is the premier resource supporting interfaith couples exploring Jewish life and inclusive Jewish communities. We offer educational content at www.interfaithfamily.com; connections to welcoming organizations, professionals and programs; resources and trainings for organizations, clergy and other program providers; and our InterfaithFamily/Your Community initiative, providing coordinated comprehensive offerings in local communities, including Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and the San Francisco Bay Area.
We are thrilled to announce that InterfaithFamily has received a â€ścore grantâ€ť from the Natan Fund.
Weâ€™ve been grateful to have been funded by Natan for several years in one of their areas of interest, but being included as a core grantee, one of â€śa highly selective group of organizations that Natan has funded for more than three years,â€ť is a great honor:
Considering who the other core grantees are, the honor is even greater: G-dcast, Hazon, Ikar, Keshet, Moishe House, and Olim Behayad (an organization that enables Ethiopian Israeli university graduates to find academic employment).
And the honor is still greater because the recognition comes from â€śa giving circle of young philanthropists dedicated to funding Jewish and Israeli nonprofit innovation,â€ť as described in eJewishPhilanthropy last week.
