ERASE INDIFFERENCE CHALLENGE 2024 FOR INNOVATIVE PROJECTS FIGHTING DISCRIMINATION.
Applications are now open for the 2024 Erase Indifference Challenge. Started as an initiative at the Auschwitz Pledge Foundation, the Erase Indifference Challenge is an innovation engine created to find and fund modern, imaginative, and measurable initiatives that will lead to concrete actions and ultimately the demise of indifference, the rise of empathy, and the acceptance and celebration of our difference.
Erase Indifference Challenge is a global initiative to find and support innovative projects fighting indifference towards discrimination, especially racism, antisemitism, misogyny, as well as discrimination against migrants and refugees, and LGBTQIA+ people. This is an innovation engine to fuel modern, imaginative and measurable initiatives that will lead to concrete actions and ultimately the demise of indifference, the rise of empathy, and the acceptance and celebration of our differences.
Erase Indifference Challenge initiative is directed to NGOs, startups, companies, public institutions, religious associations or informal groups (that have the support of an umbrella organization to take over the formal aspects of implementing a project) from all over the world.
However, there are certain groups of entities that we cannot admit into our Challenge. We cannot accept your application if you are:
● financed by or in any way related to political entities,
● implementing (or implemented in the past ) activities or projects that stand in opposition to the mission of the Auschwitz Pledge Foundation.
Erase Indifference Challenge offer grants of up to €30,000 to each of the 3 winning projects that have the greatest potential to have a real impact in the world and affect at least one of the previously mentioned forms of indifference.
The winners will also receive tangible, legal and formal support customized to their project and their needs.
