The Helmsley Charitable Trust announced on Thursday the allocation of some $11.3 million in grants to Israeli organizations and initiatives.

Among the recipients of the grants - the Volcani Agricultural Research Insitute, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Clalit Health Services Rabin Medical Center and eight other organizations who received a total of $1.3 million to bring opinion elites from various fields to Israel on educational trips.

Since the Helmsley Charitable Trust began awarding grants to Israel in 2009, it has committed over $140 million to a wide range of charitable organizations in Israel.

“These grants benefit Israel and others nations in numerous ways,” said Helmsley trustee Sandor Frankel.  “The grant to the Volcani Institute for agricultural solutions in arid land will benefit not only Israel but will literally help feed the world as climate change and population growth threaten food supplies around the globe.  The funding for Tel Aviv Medical Center will advance research that can lead to new treatment options and eventually a cure for the world’s growing population of people with IBD and Crohn’s Disease.  The Rabin Medical Center will provide critical new facilities and improve care for Israelis from across the country who are in need of life-saving organ transplants.”
