Microgrants on Israel, antisemitism 

Milwaukee Jewish Federation is offering “microgrants” for organizers of programming related to Israel or antisemitism. 

The Israel and Overseas Committee of Milwaukee Jewish Federation is offering the microgrants. Organizations can apply for microgrants ranging from $500 to $2,000 per group. If organizations partner with one another, those amounts can double. Programs must be held by June 30, so applications should be filed soon. 

Eileen Graves, who serves on a microgrants subcommittee and is the chair-elect for the Israel and Overseas Committee, said applications will be reviewed carefully, keeping in mind the mission to support Israel or combat antisemitism. 

Grant administrators are open to different kinds of ideas. The grants are “an invitation for organizations to get creative and really think outside the box as to how to structure their program,” said Darla Flemming, director of community planning for Milwaukee Jewish Federation. 

Organizations that have already been approved for microgrant funding include Hillel Milwaukee, Chabad of Waukesha and the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center, among others.
