About Us

The Rashi Foundation is one of the leading private philanthropies in Israel. Since 1984, we have been working with our partners to promote social mobility and equal opportunity in Israel’s geo-social periphery, with a focus on the educational and social welfare systems.

Driving social mobility together

Aiming to achieve significant long-term impact, Rashi develops, operates, and co-funds innovative initiatives that empower individuals and communities, while also working to shape the public agenda and advocate for policy change.

Our network of eight affiliate organizations delivers synergetic cradle-to-career solutions, thus increasing social impact on the ground.

Rashi believes that working together with partners is the best way to effect system-wide change. Pooling resources with partners from the philanthropic, business, and government sectors allows us to test our models’ effectiveness, scale them up, and ensure their long-term sustainability as state-funded public services.

The Rashi Foundation has been accredited by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) as a consultant to the United Nations Human Rights Council.
