The Lawrence B. and Elyse Benenson Charitarian Foundation believes that people who have more ought to help people who have less. When charity flourishes, human suffering is alleviated. The Charitarian Fund promotes, engenders, and spreads good thinking and direct action by funding educational, environmental, artistic and community empowerment organizations that actually help people.
Most recently, The PEN/Benenson Courage Award was established to honor the people who exhibited bravery in the face of silence and oppression – people who showed the world what it was like to honor the First Amendment above all and fight back against censorship. The 2020 recipients were U.S Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Darnella Frazier, who captured the George Floyd murder, and through her incredible selflessness and strength changed the course of history in the United States with a single cellphone video.
