What Just Happened?

“Keren Ba’ktana” is an Israeli partner of The Awesome Foundation. It offers a double opportunity to do good. First of all, it provides financial support to small-scale public projects seeking their “big break.” In addition, it offers young professionals the opportunity to dip their toes into the philanthropic world through small acts of strategic giving – providing them with a chance to truly impact the environment
around us.

How does it work?

The foundation itself includes 10-15 trustees who come together on a monthly basis (at a local bar or café, of course) and donate 200 NIS. The trustees represent a group of young, diverse but influential people who did not necessarily have any contact between them beforehand (it’s also a great place to meet new people!) Between each monthly meeting – via word of mouth marketing by the trustees themselves and aggressive social media campaigning – small projects seeking funding roughly 3,000 NIS are recruited and apply for funding. Every second month, the trustees discuss the benefits of each of the projects and choose one lucky winner to receive the grant.

Keren Ba’ktana is a subsidiary of The Awesome Foundation which operates giving circles in over 50 cities (and growing!) worldwide.

Where Is The Money Going?

We are going to create a super cool designers’ contest with the money. More details soon…

I would like to thank Keren Ba’ktana for picking us as this month’s winner. We will make you proud!
