The Rashi Foundation is incorporated abroad and is established and financed by a philanthropic family and other individuals deeply committed to the State of Israel. In Israel, the Foundation is represented by a charitable entity (“amuta” in Hebrew) that executes the Foundation’s mission. Members of the Amuta include family representatives and an advisory board of prominent Israeli leaders from industry and the academia.
During the past two decades, Rashi has evolved from a purely funding organization to a social entrepreneur that initiates and develops concrete solutions to social needs. More recently, the Foundation has become an operator of programs through subsidiary associations. These subsidiaries act as our operating arms in different areas, and have enabled us to increase greatly the scope of our work and to make it more effective, far-reaching, transparent and measurable.
