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 2021 we ran an invitation-only grantmaking process and are doing the same in 2022.  We anticipate our next open application process to take place in 2023 – we are not accepting unsolicited applications at this time.
