TSADIK foundation is a family philanthropy created in the 90's to enhance human dignity and joy on a global basis.
It supports organizations and individuals who endeavor to reduce the suffering of people and advance human rights & economic development, with a focus on the Global South.
The foundation also promotes arts & culture, including in western societies, as well as spiritual development in accordance with the Jewish tradition and its relation to Israel.
As part of its Arts & Culture goal, Tsadik Foundation collaborates with its sister organization Kadist Art Foundation, encouraging the contribution of the arts to society, conducting programs primarily with artists represented in its collection to promote their role as cultural agents. The Foundation also supports each year 3 fellows who initiated Arts and Culture projects to strengthen the social fabric of their community : council.
Tsadik’s board is comprised of members of the founding family and external experts in the various subjects directly relevant to the Foundation’s operations. Tsadik Foundation is domiciled in Zurich, Switzerland.
Tsadik conducts most of its philanthropic grant-making activity in close collaboration with several organizations (the “Umbrellas”) specializing in its focus areas. This operating model enables Tsadik members to leverage the local expertise of the Umbrellas’ field-based infrastructure, while engaging in a direct relationship with ultimate recipients of the grants, often grassroot non-profits.
Seeking sustainable solutions for its philanthropic priorities, the foundation favors approaches such as:
Ashoka ( Switzerland) identifies and invests in leading social entrepreneurs, men and women with system changing solutions for the world’s most urgent social problems
Euforia is a Swiss social enterprise which empowers people and unleashes their full changemaker potential
