Our Mission

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

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.

Natan’s grantmaking process and robust calendar of events address the core questions of strategic philanthropy:

What are we
trying to achieve?
What are the most
effective and efficient
ways to accomplish
those goals?
Where are the bright
spots in the landscape?
What impact is our
grant making having
on the issues and
organizations we care
most about?
