“Everything begins with an idea,” Earl Nightingale once said. Palestine Foundation began with Palestinian-American founders who hold the idea that all people are intrinsically good and those who need help can better benefit from tools than handouts. Our idea is founded on humanitarian projects based on sustainability. We envision people empowering themselves and their communities for future generations. Palestine Foundation was founded to help give people the means to build self-sufficient and prosperous communities. As a foundation, we are an umbrella entity that funds projects and keeps the bulk of the initiative, implementation and long-term benefits in the hands of local communities with independent day-to-day operations for continued growth. Along with these benefits comes the responsibility of full accountability.
Our story is the Palestinian story. Through clear dedication to our vision, mission, and values, the Palestinians can enrich their lives and achieve their goals. The Palestinian story is one of loving life and we are here simply to help.
Our vision is to enrich the lives of Palestinians.
Our mission is to advance sustainable projects in education, health, habitat, and the arts, built on a strong foundation of community participation.
Palestine Foundation is an umbrella entity that creates the environment for collaboration with on-the-ground individuals and organizations whose initiatives meet our criteria and demonstrate commitment to long-term sustainability.
Palestine Foundation fosters a spirit of service that optimizes resources responsibly via a board of directors accountable for ethical and transparent work as well as affirming the dignity and potential of volunteers, donors, partners and beneficiaries.
Palestine Foundation celebrates the joyful culture of the Palestinians.
We seek projects in the medical field that can leave a sustainable impact on the medical community in Palestine. Projects from medical technologies to consistent training programs for local medical staff.
We seek projects that leave a sustainable impact on housing in Palestine. Projects from sustainable construction from local materials to green energy solutions helping people become independent from the occupation.
We seek projects that leave a sustainable impact on education in Palestine. Projects from scholarship opportunities to educational workshops that teach people sought after skills that create job opportunities and economy.
We seek projects that leave a sustainable impact on the arts in Palestine. Projects from museums, studios and other artistic centers that help create an environment for Palestinian art to flourish.
