Rosenberg Fund For Children
Category: Children, Youth & Families
DescriptionThe Fund was established to provide for the educational and emotional needs of children whose parents have suffered because of their progressive activities. The Fund also provides grants for the educational and emotional needs of targeted activist youth. Named for Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage, the Rosenbergs were executed in 1953 because they refused to implicate others by falsely confessing to giving the “secret” of the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union. The Fund defines “targeted” as someone who has: lost a job, suffered physical or mental injury or disability, been harassed or discriminated against, been imprisoned or died as a result of their activism. “Progressive activities” are actions taken to further the beliefs that all people have equal worth; world peace is a necessity; people are more important than profits; and society must function within ecologically sustainable limits. The Fund considers grant applications twice a year. Additional information is available on the Web site.
Contact information and additional details are available to members of the Society.
