27 FEBRUARY 2014 / Two years of grants and initiatives by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to help ease the adverse effects of the economic crisis in Greece

The SNF has already committed €77 million out of the total €100 million of the program,implementing 204 grants in total.

In January 2012, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation announced a three-year, €100 million initiative, in addition to its tactical grant making activities, in order to help alleviate the adverse effects of the socioeconomic crisis in Greece. 

Two years later, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation has committed grants which account for approximately 80% of the program’s total budget. The foundation has made grants totaling €77 million, to 179 non-profit organizations throughout Greece, in order to reinforce their socially oriented work. This way, the Foundation supports the efforts of citizens in dealing with the increasing challenges and difficulties posed by the crisis.

Aimed towards alleviating the adverse effects of the economic crisis in Greece, this initiative is fully aligned with the Foundation’s core mission of implementing grants and initiatives capable of creating positive social impact and bringing about substantial improvements in the quality of life of citizens. The essence of the initiative lies in its dual purpose: through the supported programs it seeks, on one hand, to provide immediate relief to citizens who are faced with urgent problems and, on the other hand, to create all the necessary conditions to ensure long-term results.

In the context of the initiative, and keeping in mind its dual purpose, the supported programs reinforce the areas of Health and Social Welfare, taking into account the citizens’ need for immediate support, but also the areas of Education and Culture, creating a solid foundation for the future.

Specifically, in the period between January 2012 and February 2014, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation committed grants totaling €77 million to 179 non-profit organizations from 31 cities in Greece, actively supporting the implementation of 204 programs, offering substantial aid to the most vulnerable citizens while, at the same time, producing multiple benefits for society at large.

In more detail, the following actions have taken place under the Foundation’s initiative during the past two years:

• Social Welfare: The Foundation has committed 143 grants, totaling €61 million

• Health & Medicine: The Foundation has committed 25 grants, totaling €7 million

• Education: The Foundations has supported 25 programs, with grants totaling €7 million

• Arts & Culture:  The Foundation has committed €2 million in grants, which have contributed to the implementation of 11 programs.

Andreas Dracopoulos, co-President of the SNF’s board of directors stated: “It is our deep-rooted belief that no citizen should lose their dignity and hope, especially now, and our sincere desire to help create a better tomorrow that mobilized the Stavros Niarchos Foundation two years ago to undertake this initiative and to provide, within its capabilities, support to those who have been severely affected by the crisis. The ultimate goal of the Foundation is not only to support the Greek society, but to also aid in the creation of a welfare society, where cooperation, solidarity and social cohesion will inspire and guide all citizens and creative agencies of our country”.
