A safe and secure state in the historic homeland of an ancient people
Based in San Francisco, California, MZ Foundation is a private grant-making foundation committed to combating anti-Semitism in the United States and across the globe, and safeguarding the security of the Jewish people and the Jewish State of Israel. MZ Foundation has partnered with more than 70 different organizations across several continents. We do not accept outside contributions.
MZ Foundation supports three key priority areas:
Combatting Global Anti-Semitism
Anti-Semitism is a growing and alarming problem around the world today. MZ Foundation supports programs that speak out against anti-Semitism. MZ Foundation partners with both Jewish and non-Jewish organizations to educate the public about anti-Semitism, and ways to combat the spread of this scourge.
MZ Foundation recognizes the clear imperative for accurate dissemination of information about Israel in order to effectively advocate for the Jewish people. MZ Foundation funds various education missions for leaders and students to Israel. MZ Foundation supports organizations that protect Israel through monitoring and correcting biases and distortions in the media and on the internet. We also support many organizations on the ground in Israel who are pushing back against the anti-Zionist assault.
Campus and High School Israel Advocacy
Understanding that the lines between anti-Israel sentiment and anti-Semitic rhetoric have merged on campuses around the world, MZ Foundation guides organizations to provide students with the essential resources to gain knowledge and confidence in order to become effective advocates for Israel and the Jewish people. MZ Foundation is committed to working with organizations to ensure Jewish students are safe and respected on their high school and college campuses.
