We are grateful for the state and local grants we have received that are helping to support our security and facility needs.

We are currently receiving reimbursements from a 2021 FEMA Nonprofit Security Grant. This grant is supporting:

  • A new door code keypad outside the kitchen door.
  • Security film for outdoor windows with ground-level access and windows in our classroom doors to make unlawful entrance more difficult.
  • Partial funding for our Madison Police Department (MPD) coverage.

We were awarded a 2022 FEMA Nonprofit Security Grant. This grant will support:

  • New radios or communication devices for the school.
  • New wooden fencing surrounding our parking lot to replace the broken fence, providing a more secure boundary around TBE property.
  • New steel doors in the back of our building to replace those that are rusted. 
  • Partial funding for our MPD coverage. 

We were awarded a $2,500 security grant from the Jewish Federation of Milwaukee. This grant will:

  • Help defray the cost of MPD coverage during the High Holy Days.

We were recently awarded a grant from the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Foundation, enabling us to: 

  • Replace the material on one of our oldest roof tops.
  • Purchase solar panels that will reduce our utility costs and help the environment.

We will continue to pursue grant funding opportunities to help support our security and facility expenses.
