We promote impact entrepreneurship through ground-breaking tools

Our methodology

The Edmond de Rothschild Foundation (IL) leads, develops, and supports social innovation through a creative and results-oriented approach, with the goal of creating maximum social impact. Our built-in workflow enables not only support for a growing number of initiatives, but also continual monitoring and control, which helps us to constantly learn, improve, and become more effective.

Since 2010, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundation (IL) has placed special emphasis on the evaluation and measurement of its philanthropic activities, adopting and promoting the development of innovative and effective tools: systematic collection of information and data, definition of objectives and desired outcomes, regular supervision, and more. This approach ensures the ongoing involvement and long-term commitment of the Foundation and the initiatives which it supports, and amounts to much more than a one-time financial contribution.
