Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Bay Area community grantmaking focuses on four initiatives, with the primary goal of promoting a vibrant Bay Area region through education, the arts, and civic institutions. The Koret Foundation’s Jewish community grantmaking is comprised of three core initiatives. Together, these initiatives seek to increase Jewish identification and involvement; strengthen ties between Israel and the Bay Area; combat anti-Semitism; and develop a flourishing Jewish community in the Bay Area, Israel, Poland, and globally.

As one of the major philanthropic foundations in the Bay Area, Koret sees its role as multi-faceted: partner, facilitator, convener, and community member.
