After surveying 146 organizations in our strike zone last year, we extended invitations to 20 applicants who competed for two open portfolio slots.

Looking ahead, we are currently planning to offer an “open” RFP in the summer of 2017. For updates on our grantmaking and portfolio in the interim, we invite you to follow our Twitter feed @ArborBrothers.

As a reminder, Arbor Brothers supports nonprofit organizations in the NY-NJ-CT area that are:

  1. Second-Stage: Observable program and modest budget
  2. Attacking Root Causes of Poverty: Addressing the underlying causes, rather than treating the symptoms, of poverty, primarily in the fields of education, youth development and job training
  3. High-potential: Relentless and humble leadership employing a model designed to produce meaningful social outcomes
