Our Grant Philosophy

Through its grant making program, the Foundation for Middle East Peace supports charitable organizations working to defend and support Palestinian rights, to end Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem, and to ensure for a just and lasting solution to the conflict in Israel/Palestine. The FMEP grant program is by invitation-only.

FMEP’s grants fall into four main strategic areas:

  1. Ending Israeli policies that break international law, trample democratic norms, and violate human rights and dignity.
  2. Defending the anti-occupation/pro-peace sector as a whole, including combatting the weaponization of the Israel-Palestinian issue & false accusations of antisemitism.
  3. Cultivating/elevating new thought leaders who challenge status quo assumptions, expand the debate beyond the existing stale limits, and articulate alternatives to failed policies and approaches.
  4. Enabling Palestinians to remain in Palestine.
