Germany – Amadeu Antonio Stiftung

The Amadeu Antonio Stiftung is one of Germany’s foremost, independent non-governmental organizations working to strengthen democratic civic society and eliminate neo-Nazism, right-wing extremism, and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry and hate in Germany.

Since its founding in 1998, the Foundation has funded more than 770 projects and campaigns in pursuit of this goal. It brings direct support to victims of hate-based violence, and promotes alternative youth cultures and community networks to weaken the social structures that intolerance and racism need to survive.

The Foundation goes beyond mere grant-making to assist projects in intensifying their local and grassroots work, and build networks and coalitions with other initiatives. It runs its own parallel projects to draw attention to neglected but important issues, including studying the role of women in the neo-Nazi subculture, and addressing the lasting effects of contrasting Nazi-period and Holocaust education and remembrance in former West and East Germany.

Increasingly, the Foundation leverages its profile and resources to expand its role beyond Germany. Developing strategic partnerships in the United States and around Europe, the Foundation hopes to meet challenges abroad with the same success and determination as it has at home.
