The Staenberg Family Foundation, a supporting foundation of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, is continuing the Anything Grants program for the fourth year.
The Anything Grants, aimed at helping agencies and organizations raise funds for a variety of needs, will provide funds for projects in the areas of infrastructure, capital improvements, new and ongoing programs, technology and more. Project budget not to exceed $10,000. The Foundation will award $50,000 in grants to local Jewish organizations, ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 per grant. Each grant will be equal to 50% of the project budget; organizations are responsible for raising the remaining 50% from other sources. Grant recipients must complete the project by December 1, 2017 in order to receive funds.
Anything Grant applications are being accepted January 3 through February 9 at JFedSTL.org/AnythingGrants. Members of the Staenberg Family Foundation will evaluate proposals and will announce the winners by the end of April 2017. For information, contact Mindee Fredman at MFredman@JFedSTL.org.
The Staenberg Family Foundation was founded in 2005 by Michael and Carol Staenberg to ensure that the Jewish community, as well as the greater St. Louis region, thrives and flourishes. The highest funding priority has been supporting services, projects and programs directed toward creating a thriving Jewish community. The Foundation’s other significant areas of interest are services, projects and programs relating to arts and culture, children, education, and medical research, which work toward the betterment of the St. Louis metropolitan area.
I was honored to have been a recipient of The Staenberg Family Foundation Anything Grant in 2015. I am planning on applying again this year, as a Planner for programs at the Hillel House helping students and friends with a mental illness. Thank you for this opportunity.
