The Stavros Niarchos Foundation have announced that within the next year, it will allocate an additional €100 million, in order to further alleviate the adverse effects of the crisis in Greece. Yesterday, the Board of Directors announced its decision to proceed with another emergency grant program supporting non-profit organisations in Greece. The program, totalling €100 million, will last one year and aims to provide additional support for all those who have been affected the most by the extended socioeconomic crisis in Greece.

This new grant program complements the first “Initiative Against the Greek Crisis”, through which the Stavros Niarchos Foundation—between 2012 and 2015—allocated another €100 million, implementing more than 220 grants, which primarily supported the areas of Social Welfare and Health, but also Education and Culture, while simultaneously ensuring the sustainability of hundreds of Greek organisations, whose actions provide multiple benefits to the Greek society.
