Franz Blumenfeld Peace Education Fund

The Franz Blumenfeld Peace Education Fund was established by the peace activist and noted urbanist, Hans Blumenfeld, in 1982 to honour his brother, Franz, who was killed in the First World War. The Blumenfeld Peace Education Fund is held by Science for Peace, and an committee awards grants to individuals or organizations for peace-education projects. The fund is not meant to support the ongoing activities of an organization or to subsidize the income of self-employed writers or the normal research activities of academics. Rather, its aim is to help those mounting projects specifically directed at peace education, such as workshops, conferences, artistic displays, or special publications. The upper limit of an award is $1,000.

Inquiries or applications for awards should be e-mailed to: sfp@physics.utoronto.ca. Your email should include a description of the project, an anticipated budget, and an indication of other sources of funds secured or being sought.

Awards draw on interest from a capital base first provided by Hans Blumenfeld and augmented by subsequent donations. Such donations are most welcomed. To make a donation or inquire about making one, please contact sfp@physics.utoronto.ca. Donations are eligible for tax credits.

Two trustees are nominated to represent the Science for Peace Board. The current trustees are Thomas Davis and Mary Eryl Court.
