Message from the Chairman

Our world has recently been faced with unprecedented economic, social and environmental challenges resulting from the erratic management of financial institutions and public policy. This has been further compounded by the careless exploitation of our natural resources. Such turmoil is taking place in a context of heightened geopolitical tensions fed by a number of regional conflicts across the planet. Although this phenomenon is not new, it could grow worse and spiral out of control if decision makers, the world of business and civil society do not take a clear stand in the competition for dwindling resources.

We all have a role to play in building a better world for our children. In our own case, we were exceptionally fortunate to inherit a unique philanthropic tradition based on a longstanding commitment to solidarity, social responsibility and the advancement of knowledge.

These values have translated into our family's continued involvement with Israel from the 19th century to this very day. "Hanadiv" inaugurated the Rothschilds' strong alliance with the Jewish homeland by investing in enthusiastic youngsters who had a dream. He believed in the power of vision and of change and worked relentlessly to provide the pioneers of this dream with training, moral guidance and financial support.

The entrepreneurial network of foundations we continue developing around the world upholds this legacy. In Israel, The Edmond de Rothschild Foundation, founded nearly 50 years ago by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, ensures that this heritage will continue for many generations to come.

By bringing to Israel our innovative and strategic approach to philanthropy, and investing in leadership, diversity, access to higher education and academic excellence, The Edmond de Rothschild Foundation (IL) works each day to ensure that our vision will translate into lasting achievements.

The people we believe in and the projects we support provide the best illustration of our faith in human potential, our commitment to the value of sharing and our pursuit of excellence.
