A Collaboration Between the Edmond de Rothschild Foundation, Israel, and the Jewish Funders Network

The Edmond de Rothschild Foundation (Israel) is the expression of a long-term commitment of the Rothschild family to the pioneering spirit of Israel.  Harnessing a legacy of over 130 years, the Foundation is spearheading philanthropic dedication to building an inclusive society by promoting excellence, diversity and leadership through higher education.

By catalyzing true change and developing a cohesive society through dozens of innovative projects across the country, the Foundation provides growth and empowerment opportunities to the many communities in Israel. We develop and support novel solutions and creative partnerships, while evaluating result-driven programs with true social impact.

The Foundation’s areas of interest and expertise are:

  1. Insuring access to and success in higher education
  2. Academic excellence and research
  3. Impact entrepreneurship and leadership
  4. Artistic outreach

By promoting these fields, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundation (IL) continues to influence the lives of tens of thousands of people, while shaping the next generation of social leaders.
