Staenberg Anything Grants: Building Community

For the organizations who receive Staenberg Anything Grants, they’re… well, not everything, but they are an important source of funding. The Anything Grants fund 50% of projects and cover… well, anything from facilities improvements to programming; recipients must provide the remaining 50%. This year, with $50,000 to distribute from the Staenberg Family Foundation, forty-five applicants applied for over $200,00 in funding.

At the beginning of June, JEWISHcolorado announced the fourteen 2020 recipients, including Hillel of Colorado and Death Yentas, an organization dedicated to helping Jewish mourners through the grieving—and burial—process.
