The Anna Lindh Memorial Fund (Swedish: Anna Lindhs Minnesfond) is a memorial fund started to commemorate the Swedish politician Anna Lindh, who was assassinated in 2003. The fund gives an annual award, known as the Anna Lindh Prize, to a woman or young person with "the courage to fight indifference, prejudice, oppression and injustices in order to promote a good life for all people in an environment marked by respect for human rights."[1]

The prize carries an award of SEK 150,000. In addition, the fund makes grants, which "aim to encourage projects in Anna Lindh’s spirit", of SEK 25,000 to Swedish individuals.[2]
