Happy Holidays from Koret!

As we enter the holiday season, we are reminded of the importance of caring for our community members who are most in need. The Koret Food Program is one of the Foundation’s longest-standing initiatives. Since 1981, we have provided more than $11 million in grants to 24 Bay Area nonprofits that offer food, support, and basic necessities to the most vulnerable in our community.

Building Bridges Between Bay Area and Israeli Jews

The Koret Foundation seeks to strengthen the US-Israel relationship through bridge-building activities, including academic collaborations, trips to Israel, leadership development, and education programs. One of the signature grants in this portfolio is to Shalem College in Israel for the Koret Jewish Peoplehood Project.

Our two new grantmaking initiatives: K-12 Education Innovation Initiative & Veterans Initiative

2020 was a challenging year and clearly not what anyone expected, and yet we have been inspired by the ingenuity and strength of our grantees, who have risen to the occasion and found new and expanded ways of serving the community.
