The Agnes & Beny Steinmetz Foundation
The Agnes and Beny Steinmetz Foundation is an Israeli organization that works to make a positive impact on different parts of Israeli society, specifically within the spheres of education, culture, health, and social welfare. The foundation was established by Agnes and Beny Steinmetz in 2007 as a means of best implementing their efforts to do good. Specifically, the foundation ensures that local authorities are able to provide early childhood education services and supports organizations that use unique tools to help young people at risk.
The Steinmetz Foundation believes that the local authorities must take responsibility for early childhood education services and commit to moving them forward. As such, the foundation has been working to establish a system of professional municipal services within the local authorities and to appoint directors to be in charge of childcare under each authority’s education department.
The Steinmetz Foundation supports organizations that use unique tools to help at-risk youth and holds annual meetings of a forum of such organizations.
Out of a profound commitment to Israeli society, the Steinmetz Foundation supports a range of organizations working in the fields of education, welfare, culture, and health. The foundation has helped build the new wing of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and contributes each year to the Israel Cancer Association as well as to afterschool childcare facilities and to the welfare fund of the Eldad School in Netanya.
