As a reminder, Arbor Rising supports nonprofit organizations in the NY-NJ-CT area that are:

  • Second-Stage – Observable program with a modest budget
  • Building a Path Out of Poverty – Making deep investments to support sustained economic mobility for those living in poverty, rather than providing short-term solutions. Our grantees often focus on education, youth development and job training.
  • High-potential – Relentless and humble leadership employing a model designed to produce meaningful social outcomes

In 2022 we ran an invitation-only grantmaking process. In 2023, we plan to run an open application process. Eligibility criteria, application instructions and other details will be posted to this page in May.
