Arbor Rising currently 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 2023, we are running an open application process for grants to be distributed in October. Click here for the eligibility criteria, application instructions, and application, and here for the latest FAQ.  First round applications are due 6/20.
