Melbourne’s Gandel Foundation has recently recommitted its support to Courage to Care for the next three years.

This is a significant investment valued at over $200K and builds on the successful partnership between the two organisations that has been going on for nearly a decade. This latest three-year grant is providing core operational support to Courage to Care to enable them to deliver on their mission and reach even more young people.

“Courage to Care delivers programs that teach our younger generations about human rights and about the importance of standing up and protecting those rights. In these turbulent times, initiatives that educate about compassion, care and humanity are probably more important than ever before. Gandel Foundation and the Gandel family are fully committed to helping build and strengthen social cohesion and inclusion in the Australian community, and our enduring partnership with Courage to Care is one of the finest examples of working together to achieve that,” said Vedran Drakulic, CEO of Gandel Foundation.

“Courage to Care is delighted to have the continued support of Gandel Foundation for the next three years. This is especially pleasing given the challenges we have all faced over recent years. Gandel Foundation is a principal partner and has been a strong supporter for many years, not just with resources but also with guidance, advice and connections. Its support has been pivotal in our success and this renewed commitment will allow us to reach over 10,000 students across Victoria each year with our Upstander education programs. We see this as a true, enduring and equal partnership to achieve our common goal of educating on the dangers of racism, discrimination and prejudice in our communities,” said Mike Zervos, CEO of Courage to Care.
