TSADIK is a family philanthropic foundation pursuing human dignity and joy on a global basis.
It supports organizations and individuals who aim to reduce suffering, advance human rights & economic development, with a focus on the Global South.
TSADIK programs reflect the important role of culture, technology and social entrepreneurs for a progressive world, including contributions to a vibrant jewish culture and a pluralistic society in Israël.
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:
Venture philanthropy, with a preference for fledgling non-profits, accountable causes with social impact that can scale-up or be replicated, with a consideration of cost vs benefit
The support of “social entrepreneur” who demonstrate their resolve and creativity in the pursuit of their social goals.
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.
