The Staenberg Family Foundation, a supporting foundation of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, is continuing the Anything Grants program for the fifth 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. The program has been so successful locally that it has been replicated in two other communities outside of Missouri.
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. Project budget not to exceed $10,000. Grant recipients must complete the project by December 1, 2018 in order to receive funds.
Anything Grant applications are being accepted January 3 through February 14 at JFedSTL.org/AnythingGrants. Applicants will be directed to the Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ online grant management system, Spectrum Granted Edge. Members of the Staenberg Family Foundation will evaluate proposals and will announce the winners by the end of April 2018. 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.
