Rubin and Gloria Feldman Family Educational Institute to Accept Applications for Holocaust Education Funding
Through the Institute, the St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum will fund projects focused on the history and lessons of the Holocaust
(St. Louis, June 30, 2022) – Today, the St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum announced the opening of the fall funding cycle for the Rubin and Gloria Feldman Family Educational Institute. Interested individuals and organizations can apply for funds of up to $5,000 on the Institute’s online portal. The application cycle closes on September 1, 2022, and award winners will be notified later in the fall.
The Feldman Institute supports projects that reject hatred, promote understanding, and inspire change using the history and lessons of the Holocaust. The Institute is especially, but not exclusively, interested in projects that benefit Missouri and the Midwest region. Institute funds will be dispersed to nonprofits and educational institutions. Individual educators may apply, but funds will be dispersed to the educational institute with which they are affiliated.
The Institute funds programs of educational and artistic merit that do one or more of the following: explore the history and legacy of the Holocaust; use the lessons of the Holocaust to examine subjects of ethical, social, and political importance; facilitate dialogue between people of different ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds; combat antisemitism, racism, and discrimination based on disability, sex, religion, sexual-orientation, or age. The Institute does not fund capital improvements or operating expenses.
“We’re excited to support important education projects through the Rubin and Gloria Feldman Family Educational Institute,” said Helen Turner, Director of Education. “We know that these projects will help to continue the process of transformational change in the St. Louis region and beyond.”
