JEWISHcolorado Launches Michael H. Staenberg Anything Grants

JEWISHcolorado-sqJEWISHcolorado is pleased to announce the launch of Michael H. Staenberg “Anything Grants”. Based on a generous commitment from Mr. Staenberg and the Staenberg Family Foundation, “Anything Grants” will provide a broad range of support for Jewish organizations and synagogues in Colorado.

Annual grants can range up to $5,000 and can be used for a variety of purposes including sponsorships, micro capital projects, infrastructure, and new initiatives.

“Over the years, I have witnessed the impact this type of funding can have on an organization,” Michael Staenberg commented. “While it’s not the end all and be all, micro grants enable organizations to be responsive to immediate needs and to creatively pursue initiatives they may not have otherwise.”

“Michael Staenberg has become a real difference maker in Colorado, even though it’s not his primary residence,” said Doug Seserman, JEWISHcolorado President and CEO. “We are extremely grateful for his investment in our local Jewish community.”

Mr. Staenberg’s commitment toward “Anything Grants” will be combined with existing funding used to support a wide variety of community events and other programming.

To learn more about “Anything Grants”, or to submit a request for funding, please contact Heather Coleman-Flowers, Office Administrator, at 303.316.6450 or hflowers@jewishcolorado.org.
