About the Awards

Each year in celebration of Anne Frank’s birthday, the Anne Frank Center sponsors the Spirit of Anne Frank Awards to recognize a humanitarian, a writer, an educator and a student who uphold Anne’s ideals of hope, justice, and equality.

Thank you!

​As Anne Frank said, “no one ever became poor by giving.”

Only through your generosity can we continue our educational programs and outreach, to educate a new generation to build the informed and compassionate world Anne imagined in the pages of her diary.
