Levi Lassen Foundation
Grants of up to 25,000 Euros per year to Israel nonprofits for projects that will encourage equal opportunities for all sectors of Israeli society. LOIs are due July 26, 2018. Eligible projects may facilitate dialogue between groups of different backgrounds or engage marginalized and underrepresented populations.
2018 Grant Award Focus: Shared Israeli Society
Shared society is one in which all individuals and constituent groups hold status as equally contributing participants, free to express their differences while integrating their voices within broader population. It respects everyone’s dignity and human rights while providing every individual with equal opportunity (from World Leadership Alliance, Club the Madrid). Examples of organizational activity aimed at a shared Israeli society include:
- Projects and programs which create dialogue between Jews and Arabs, religious and secular, and other communities that differ from each other
- Projects and programs which establish cooperation between civic and community bodies as a way to advance mutual understanding and action among citizens
- Projects and programs that actively engage underrepresented and marginalized communities and populations across Israel
