The Milwaukee Jewish Teen Philanthropy Board is seeking proposals for funding, which will be disbursed in May 2022.
The Milwaukee Jewish Federation program is to award a total of 4-8 grants of up to $4,500 each.
The Board is seeking to fund the following areas: poverty/homelessness; antisemitism; domestic violence/mental health; environmental sustainability; and disability rights/inclusion.
The program seeks to engage Jewish teens from across the Jewish community in a communal giving and learning effort to achieve the goal of tikkun olam (repairing the world). The Milwaukee Jewish Teen Philanthropy Board responds to those in need by offering grants that directly benefit the local Milwaukee community, according to Teen Philanthropy Coordinator Jennifer Saber.
Funding may be used for new or existing programs or projects. Acceptable uses for grant funding include staff, administrative and direct service expenses associated with the program/project. Milwaukee Jewish Teen Philanthropy does not support capital improvements, debt reduction, individual people or fundraising events.
The deadline for submission is Friday, Feb. 4, 2022. Contact Jennifer Saber at JenniferS@MilwaukeeJewish.org for more information.
