The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation, Inc. is the world’s first foundation dedicated to raising awareness of the long-term, damaging effects of bullying and funding those doing real-world work to stop it.

We stand up against bullying regardless of to whom it happens. We support organizations and projects that help stop bullying, help those hurt by bullying and/or help increase equality and diversity in sports.
