Righteous Persons Foundation
The Righteous Persons Foundation is dedicated to supporting efforts that build a vibrant, just, and inclusive Jewish community in the United States. The Foundation is currently targeting national-level projects that:
- Foster Jewish arts, culture, and identity: To revitalize and illuminate Jewish identity today, the Foundation will invest in projects that make the old new. This means digging into Judaism’s rich and varied history to expand and enrich the content being transmitted.
- Inspire a commitment to social justice: To advance justice in America, the Foundation seeks to help enable Jews to draw upon their deep commitment to activism and mobilize a “Jewish presence” on key social and economic issues.
- Promote understanding between Jews and those of other faiths and backgrounds: To ensure a more tolerant society, the Foundation supports those working as change-agents to promote tolerance through a broad range of methods.
- Invest in the next generation: To engage the next generation on issues of Jewish identity, community, and meaning, the Foundation is interested in new pathways that bet on emerging, authentic, grassroots models; leverage new technologies; and invest in future leaders.
Amount: Grants have ranged from $7,500-$250,000.
Eligibility: Tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations.
