Organizations

  • Amplifier is a global network of giving circles motivated by Jewish values and inspired by change-makers who are making a difference around the world. We catalyze, connect and counsel giving circles through hands-on guidance and our growing suite of tools.

  • Established in 2002, 21/64 has evolved from a program with the Andrea & Charles Bronfman Philanthropies into an independent nonprofit practice providing multigenerational advising, facilitation and training for next generation engagement, especially within family philanthropy and other family enterprises. They specialize in serving families with funds, foundations or other family enterprises as well as wealth and philanthropy advisors—so that multiple generations can work, give and serve together more effectively.

  • Natan is a giving circle. Natan members pool their charitable contributions and decide together where the pooled funds should go. They select a grant committee to sit on and bring 100% of their contribution with them into the budget of that committee. Their contribution is then leveraged and amplified by the contributions of other committee members, and together, over the course of the annual grant review cycle, committee members learn from experts, review grant applications, interview finalists, and make allocations decisions. Like all giving circles, Natan enables people to give in a proactive, thoughtful, empowered way - taking a strategic approach to investing in new ideas to tackle the issues that matter most to them, rather than simply responding to fundraising requests.

  • UpStart inspires and empowers leaders to dream, build, and grow bold initiatives that enhance the vitality of Jewish life. They envision Jewish communities as thriving hubs of innovation, creating a more just, vibrant, and inclusive future.

  • ROI Community is an international network of activists and change makers who are redefining Jewish engagement for a new generation of global citizens. ROI Community members channel a diversity of perspectives, skills and interests toward a shared passion for advancing ideas and partnerships that will strengthen Jewish communities and improve society. Through its capstone Summit and an innovative suite of ongoing opportunities for professional development, networking and financial support, ROI empowers its members to take an active role in shaping the Jewish future. Founded in 2006, ROI Community is part of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, a global organization that seeks to ignite the passion and unleash the power in young people to create positive change in their communities. 

  • The Board Member Institute for Jewish Nonprofits is a customized program administered by Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management. It is taught by faculty of Kellogg’s Center for Nonprofit Management and practitioners from the Jewish sector, and it is intended for active and incoming board members of Jewish nonprofit organizations. In this program, current and prospective board members of Jewish organizations will gather with like-minded individuals for a rigorous, relevant experience. Participants will leave better-equipped to manage the wide scope of responsibilities they face in guiding, governing and stewarding our organizations. Moreover, upon completion, each participant will receive a Kellogg Nonprofit Executive Education Certificate.
