Launched in 2020, the Opening the Dor initiative from Honeycomb is an intergenerational giving experience that connects teens and seniors through philanthropy, identity, storytelling and heritage.

Honeycomb is thrilled to share that we are launching a second cohort of our Opening the Dor program. Honeycomb will be accepting up to 20 communities to be part of this cohort. The application is open to organizations who have an existing youth philanthropy program and also to organizations who do not have an existing youth philanthropy program.

Opening the Dor provides grandparents/seniors with the opportunity to be active participants and contributors to Jewish legacy building and tradition within their community through collaboration with their grandchildren/teens. The program culminates in a teen-facilitated giving circle experience for grandparents/seniors in their community.

Honeycomb will work closely with each participating Opening the Dor organization providing educational curriculum, resources, funding and training to elevate and develop their philanthropy programming.



Watch the recording of our Opening the Dor information session from March 10th. This half-hour session walked attendees through all of Opening the Dor‘s offerings to organizations and enabled attendees to understand how their organizations can be a part of the second cohort of this program.



Honeycomb wants to create long-lasting and meaningful relationships with applying organizations. We are happy to set up a consultation prior to your application submission to answer any questions. Contact Danielle Segal (Honeycomb’s Program Director) to set up a meeting.
