Inspired by Jewish values and the vision and resilience of our founder, David J. Azrieli z”l, the mission of the Azrieli Foundation is to improve the lives of present and future generations through education, research, healthcare and the arts mainly in Canada and Israel.
The foundation has eight priority funding areas: Education; Fellowships; Community; Holocaust Education & Legacy; Science, Research & Healthcare; Neurodevelopment; Architecture, Design & Engineering; and Music & the Arts.
In addition to strategic philanthropic investments in organizations large and small, the foundation operates a number of programs including the Azrieli Music Prizes, the Azrieli Prize in Architecture, the Azrieli Fellows Program, the Azrieli Neurodevelopmental Research Program, the Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program.
Music and the Arts are vital human endeavours that allow us to express our creativity, expand our understanding of the world and foster cultural exchanges. The Azrieli Foundation is committed to supporting organizations that discover, elevate and amplify artistic voices, granting us access to meaningful arts experiences.
