But our work is far from done – recent research from the Scanlon Institute found that 68% of Australians hold negative feelings or attitudes towards one or more religious or non-European immigrant groups.
So what can we do to change this?
At Courage to Care, we know the answer is education. But we also know we need to move fast.
To double the number of students we reach in the next few years, we need to raise an ambitious $100,000.
A group of generous donors have offered to match all donations. Dollar for dollar.
Donate today to help us stamp out racism, bullying and prejudice.
With your generosity – and our donors’ dollar-matching commitment – we’ll be one step closer to creating a generation of Upstanders. A future we all want – and need.
We’ve delivered our Upstander Program to more than 150,000 students across Victoria at no cost to schools. And it’s all thanks to the support of our wonderful community.
Whether financial, moral or in-kind, the help of our supporters is what keeps us going. It’s what ensures the legacy of Holocaust survivors and the acts of the Righteous Among the Nations lives on. And it’s what helps promote Upstander behaviour within our own communities.
Each and every donation helps us to:
To continue delivering our mission, we welcome your support. By giving now, you can help us spread the message of acceptance and action, well into the future.

“It’s eye-opening and teaches us much more than history and the Holocaust. It inspires you to be an individual and stand up for your beliefs. It made me realise that I can make a difference.”
“Thank you for making the effort to come to our school. This is the 3rd year that you have come to our school. Your message is perfect for the work we do with our students on bullying.”
“The reward is the students’ reactions.”
“Thank you so much for telling your story. You’ve made me realise that there is a light at the end of the tunnel as I have been going through a hard time.”
“As a child of Holocaust survivors I feel strongly that through educating children about the consequences of discrimination we will be able to create a better and more embracing community.”
“This exhibition is exceptional. It is full of life-changing concepts and you are courageous to share it with us.”
“Thank you Courage to Care for helping us young people understand what to do in situations like the ones Louis went though, what to do when someone needs help. All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
“I have been volunteering with Courage to Care for 15 years and the longer I do so the more rewarding I find making young people aware of the consequences of being a bystander and the importance being an Upstander to help build a more just and cohesive community.”
“This two-hour workshop taught more to the students than we could get through in weeks at school!”
“I think the main messages that we took away from the program was that if I stand up, it will have a ripple effect, and everyone will stand up.”
