Community Investments

Community Investments

SRE Network serves as a multiplier through our community investments portfolio, which encompasses both grantmaking and investments in partnerships with experts, trainers, and practitioners in both the Jewish community and beyond to provide support to SRE Network membership, Jewish workplaces, and the field at large.

This year, SRE will have an open grants process in Fall 2023. The request for proposals (RFP) is still to be determined. We will share more information about this over the summer. Please complete this form to add yourself to the list to be kept updated. You can learn more about previous grants cycles on this webpage.

In the Fall 2022 Open Grants cycle, SRE Network awarded a total of nearly $300K to eight SRE Member organizations. You can read more about that grant cycle here. If you are interested in learning about upcoming grant cycles, please email
