The Helmsley Charitable Trust announced on Monday the allocation of some $9.6 million in grants to four Israeli institutions - Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, The Weizmann Institute of Science, and The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA).

The grants were awarded as part of a continuing effort of the Trust to invest in Israel’s leading institutions and critical initiatives toward the goal of strengthening the country. Since the Helmsley Charitable Trust began awarding grants to Israel in 2009, over $131.8 million has been committed to a wide range of charitable organizations in Israel.

“These grants demonstrate our continuing philanthropic approach toward Israel,” said Helmsley trustee Sandor Frankel.  “They strengthen Israel’s scientific, technological and medical research, benefiting the nation’s top tier institutions and academics. They also help to solve problems leading the global agenda. These grants will support Israeli innovation so it will continue to make Israel and the rest of the world a healthier and safer place for all.”
