We are the largest accelerator for nascent NGOs, charities, and philanthropies in Israel and the Jewish World.

 
 

About

HaYoreh: First Rains, a project of the Robin Hood Israel Foundation, is the largest accelerator for nascent NGOs, philanthropies, and charities in Israel and the Jewish world. It sits at the cutting edge of social enterprise, adapting the start-up incubator/accelerator model already successfully adopted by many hi-tech companies across the globe. HaYoreh facilitates the creation of new charities, NGOs, and philanthropies by providing organizations with hands-on assistance, training, and substantial administrative cost savings.

“The two biggest stumbling blocks for the establishment of new NGOs, philanthropies and charities are a lack of access to philanthropic funds and overwhelming administrative/regulatory burdens."

 

Mission Statement

To cultivate a strong nonprofit ecosystem in Israel and the Jewish world by helping nascent nonprofits overcome their two biggest stumbling blocks: lack of access to philanthropic funds and overwhelming administrative/regulatory burdens.

 

Our Incubees

HaYoreh has over 20 nascent charities, NGOs, and philanthropies with a minimum of three years of legitimate contribution to society in areas where almost no other organizations participate. All of the organizations under HaYoreh are independently registered. Currently, another 20 charities are on HaYoreh's waiting list due to a lack of funding.
