ITF Grant Strategy 2010-2013
To strengthen the political commitment of governments in order to ensure future generations will understand the causes of the Holocaust and reflect upon its consequences, the ITF has committed itself to a three-year Grant Strategy beginning in 2010.
The objectives of the ITF’s Funding Policy are to:
- Increase government involvement in creating programmes and infrastructure that will focus awareness on the Holocaust and contribute to combating antisemitism and xenophobia;
- Create sustainable structures for Holocaust education, remembrance, and research and, to that end, co-fund large-scale projects targeting multipliers;
- Fund multilateral projects and thereby stimulate the international exchange of expertise and a shared culture of remembrance.
The Grant Strategy consists of two programmes:
1) Develop strategies for Holocaust Memorial Days in a way that injects substance, real meaning and educational value into these events.
2) Raise awareness and promote research into the causes of the Holocaust, its driving forces and mechanism, with a view to preventing genocide, ethnic cleansing, racism, antisemitism, and xenophobia.
The ITF calls for grant applications from organizations and institutions in the field of Holocaust education, remembrance, and research that wish to carry out projects which fit within the remit of one of these two programmes. The ITF encourages grant applications that cut across the ITF’s mandate fields with activities combining education, remembrance, and research. Applications related to the Roma genocide are encouraged.
If you have any questions, please contact the ITF Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
