The Swedish Social Democratic Party founded the Anna Lindh Memorial Fund in September 2003 shortly after Anna Lindh’s death. During the first year of operations, donations of close to 10 million SEK were made to the Fund. Our work continues to be funded mainly through donations made by private citizens and organisations.

The Anna Lindh Memorial Fund supports individuals and organisations that courageously fight indifference, prejudice, oppression and injustice to create a better life for their fellow citizens by working for a society where human rights are respected. We strive to show that violence shall never be allowed to triumph over our faith in change through peaceful means and democracy. Our aim is to ensure that the principles of Anna Lindh’s work and achievements continue to live strong and that we may encourage others to carry on in her spirit.
