Grants to USA, Canada, and International organizations and institutions to provide services for elderly Holocaust survivors, and for Holocaust education, research, and preservation. Funding is intended to provide care to Holocaust victims as well as for documentation, education, and research related to the Holocaust.

Social Services

In social services, the main priorities include: homecare/housekeeping services, case management, food programs, transportation, health and medical related services, emergency assistance programs, and socialization programs.

In evaluating social service applications, the staff looks at several items such as:

  • The type and nature of the needs of the vulnerable Jewish Nazi victims in each country;
  • The number of Jewish Nazi victims currently served by the organization;
  • Unmet homecare needs of Jewish Nazi victims served by the organization or on a wait list for service;
  • The level of government services and social safety nets;
  • The availability of other resources (e.g., restitution, compensation, philanthropic and governmental);
  • Types of services being provided;
  • Track record of the organization if previous grants have been awarded;
  • Reasonableness of the budget and the cost of providing services;
  • Professional standards of organization (e.g., service delivery, budgets, results of audits, etc.).

In addition to the internal staff review, many projects are also assessed by outside professionals. Capital projects are funded in consultation with relevant government ministries.

Certain limited capital projects may be considered for minor capital improvements that directly facilitate the delivery of social services to Nazi victims in economically distressed countries, not to exceed $10,000 on a matching basis.

Shoah Research, Education, Documentation and Film

Areas eligible for funding include:
  • Archival Cataloging and Accessibility Projects
  • Educational Programs (particularly in countries with weak infrastructure for Shoah education)
  • Educator Training Programs for In-Service Educators (including with visits to Holocaust-related sites)
  • Exhibitions
  • Films
  • Research & Publications

Priority will be given to projects in parts of the world with weak infrastructure for Shoah-related education.
