United for Democracy - we join forces

The “United for Democracy” Fonds pools resources of companies and foundations to strengthen civil society organizations. The first grant of 840 000 euro introduced by the initiative supports organizations that are active in the German regions, the whole country or online. The Hans and Berthold Finkelstein Foundation is one of the partners.

United for Democracy

By the time of the 75th anniversary of the German consitution, hate and extremism are getting more and more visible and perceptible. This can be seen during verbal and evermore physical attacks in the election campaigns, but also in rising antisemitism and racism. 


However, numerous civil society organizations and dedicated people commit themselves to everyday work to defend democracy and diversity – locally, all over Germany and online. They receive financial support from fonds to be able to expand their activities.


We would like to thank the Business Council for Democracy #BC4D, the Allianz Foundation, ProjectTogether, Charta der Vielfalt e.V., Scholz & Friends and all other partner organizations from business and civil society who have launched the initiative.
