Impact Goal

Achieving the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals is within our reach. If we creatively pool together all our resources — domestic and international, public and private — we will be able to maximize their impact.

A Menomadin Foundation's Fundação Arte e Cultura Strategic Philanthropy Project: the Arts and Culture Academy in Luanda, Angola.
"We identify core problems, rather than simply their symptoms, and craft creative, holistic, and high-impact development solutions that can be scaled globally".

Dr. Merav Galili, The Menomadin Foundation

The Menomadin Foundation is a social impact fund, pioneering a non-uniform approach to impact. It supports change makers, united by their quest to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (the UN SDGs). Leveraging an innovative Blended Finance Approach to harness the synergy of impact investments, the foundation advances strategic philanthropy endeavors and initiates public-private partnerships to advance social causes.

Menomadin Foundation’s investment thesis guides its support of impact-driven mature startups in agrotech, health, energy, water, education and employment– technologies and ideas directed at advancing change, at scale – without compromising financial returns. The Foundation also crafts creative proofs of concept with innovative financial models, and establishes social businesses, reinvesting earnings for a sustainable impact.

The Foundation’s philanthropic endeavors are guided by a business-like approach that ensures constant progress towards set milestones and optimal performance. In Africa, the foundation focuses on advancing unprivileged communities and empowering women, young adults, and children. In Israel, it aims to strengthen the country’s social resilience.

Its cross-sector partnership initiatives involve local and national Governments, NGOs, and the business sector – all committed to the realization of predefined social goals.
