Righteous Persons Foundation (RPF)
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for activities that promote an inclusive, just, and vibrant Jewish community. A letter of inquiry is required prior to submission of a full application. The Foundation is currently focusing its grantmaking efforts on initiatives and organizations that are national in scope.
Applications are invited for projects meeting the following priority areas:
- Foster Jewish arts, culture, and identity: To revitalize and illuminate Jewish identity today, RPF invests in projects that make the old new. That 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, RPF looks to help enable Jews to draw upon our deep commitment to activism and mobilize a “Jewish presence” on the key social and economic issues of our time.
- Promote understanding between Jews and those of other faiths and backgrounds: To ensure a more tolerant society, RPF 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, RPF is interested in new pathways that bet on emerging, authentic, grassroots models; leverage new technologies; and invest in future leaders.
