2019-20 Grant Application

Shred Hate is a bullying prevention program created by ESPN, supported by Major League Baseball and X Games, that seeks to eliminate bullying by encouraging kids to choose kindness.

The ultimate goal of Shred Hate is to cause a tangible reduction of bullying incidents in schools by igniting the compassion of youth. Approximately one-third of adolescents worldwide are the target of bullying every year and 160,000 kids per day do not attend school for fear of being bullied, so the need and timing for such a program is critical.

As part of the program, No Bully, a nonprofit that trains schools how to activate student compassion to eradicate bullying and cyberbullying, works directly with local school districts through the program. This year, the Shred Hate grant is available to select schools in New York City, Boston, Denver, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Oakland.
