The Rishon LeZion Foundation assists with funding a very broad range of projects in the city in various spheres, including education, culture, social inclusion, the third age and entrepreneurship. These projects are innovative and unique, and with their help the city’s residents enjoy programs that strengthen the community and reduce social gaps. The Foundation’s staff, in cooperation with many partners across the city, is constantly working to identify the needs of each of the communities comprising Rishon LeZion, in order to find a solution and to improve the residents’ quality of life. We receive and review many requests, hold work meetings, and put together a detailed file for each project. This then enables us to approach donors, institutions and other bodies that are interested in taking part in meaningful social action on behalf of the people of our city.
We do our best to match our donors’ and partners’ wishes to their vision, and to a desire to help a project that is close to their heart and to the way in which they are interested in implementing their objectives. Therefore, we engage in continuous and challenging work so that each of our projects receives a suitable solution that will extend over time. All of the ideas and projects receive close support from professionals from the Rishon LeZion Municipality’s various departments and divisions. The municipality also provides support and assistance with resources, and occasionally funding as well, so that a project can get up and running. The pages below provide detailed descriptions about dozens of active projects from recent years.
