Eligibility Criteria:
1. Organizations officially registered as non-profits in Israel (amutot, community interest companies, and charities) with valid authorization of non-profit status (rishum amuta), proper management certificate (nihul takin) (unless the organization exists for only a short time) and valid certification from tax and VAT authorities (Ishur nihul sfarim ve nikuy mas). Start-up NGOs do not need a nihul takin.
2. The age of the amuta is not relevant but preference will be given to those amutot that have already proven successful in their work.
3. Projects must be carried out in Israel, excluding occupied territories.
4. The Levi Lassen Foundation supports:
a) organizations or projects that educate and empower young Ethiopian-Israeli women (ages 15-30);
b) projects that have at least some synergies with the overall vision and mission of the NGO;
c) projects (not necessarily the NGOs) that are of a grassroots nature, so also small innovative projects of a large NGO will be considered;
d) projects that have a down to earth impact and, at least on the face of it, make a difference.
5. NGOs must be able to demonstrate a stable, effective, creative and well-run organization, a sound financial status, and Nihul Takin.

NGOs may apply for up to 15,000 Euro’s a year and may be given a grant for a period of one year.

Grantees may apply for a renewal grant (subject to submitting an evaluation report which has to be approved by the foundation).

The next deadline for Stage 1 applications is November 15, 2021.
