Empowerment and Resilience - 2023 grants awarded to ENAR Members!
Our key line of support to grassroots organisations
Within the Empowerment and Resilience Fund, another round of 17 grants has been disbursed to ENAR Members across Europe, amounting to more than 150K EUR. The largest of ENAR Foundation initiatives, the Fund is a lifeline for small and medium anti-racist organisations, supporting grassroots projects, as well as organisational development.
“The Empowerment and Resilience Fund remains a reliable and accessible funding source for anti-racism organisations often struggling to maintain operations in hostile political environments. The Fund not only helps them survive and implement meaningful activities. Its collaborative and flexible nature also builds the ENAR Members’ capacity to further fundraise from other sources. We hope to continue this support framework in the years to come” says ENAR Foundation’s Director, Kim Smouter.
