Community Investments

SRE Network invests in strengthening the capacity of Jewish organizations through grantmaking to create a Jewish communal landscape where safe, respectful, and equitable efforts are consistently funded, prioritized, and implemented so change can happen sustainably and systemically.

Through our grantmaking efforts, we hope communities will be strengthened, more cohesive, experience healing, and have deeper trust in each other, their institutions, and leaders.

To date, SRE Network has invested over $6M in grants and supports over six years to 45 grantees to advance safety, respect, and equity. For a comprehensive list of projects SRE has funded, please click here.

SRE announced $500,000 as part of its inaugural funding in October 2018. Through the Rapid Response Fund, SRE seeks to address pressing needs to promote safety, respect, and equity in Jewish communities.
