OVERVIEW: The Moriah Fund focuses its grants in this giving space on combatting gender inequality and sexual and reproductive health rights.
IP TAKE: This funder awards grants to support specific projects and general operating costs.
PROFILE: Robert and Clarence Efroymson founded the Moriah Fund in 1985. Rooted in “[f]undamental Jewish values,” the Moriah Fund’s grantmaking “[i]ncorporate(s) concern for the basic needs of all people—especially the most disadvantaged—and the well-being and continuation of the Jewish people.” The fund supports civil rights, social justice and democracy in Israel; economic justice for low-income families; advancing women’s rights and sexual and reproductive health; and protecting and advancing human rights.
Moriah’s women’s rights and reproductive health program aims to transform legal, political, economic, and social structures that help to sustain gender inequality and violence against women and prevent women’s full participation in society; and supports organizations that enable women to have full control over their sexual and reproductive health.
Grant amounts generally range from $10,000 to $100,000. Past grantees include the National Domestic Workers Alliance for its We Belong Together coalition, which advocates for women’s rights and well-being in immigration reform; and the National Partnership for Women and Families, which received a general operating support grant.
