Welcome to the Agnes & Beny Steinmetz Foundation


To us, improving the fabric of Israeli society means empowering its most vulnerable segments, notably the young. Our Foundation focuses on strengthening the infrastructure that directly supports children and youth at risk, from early childhood to college. 

Since being founded in 2006 by Beny Steinmetz and Agnes his wife. The foundation has been working to ensure that every Israeli child has a chance to succeed. We create and develop a sustainable network of programs that serves as a safety net for the young, through partnerships with other organizations and municipalities throughout Israel.

Our CEO, Iris London, is the voice of the Foundation, and will be updating on our latest activities via the blog on this website.

Youth at Risk


To help youth already identified as being 'at risk', the Foundation has formed a number of exciting partnerships with organizations that use innovative approaches to reach disadvantaged youth. These include offering enrichment programs—sailing, therapeutic riding, dancing, drama and film making. Approximately 500 youth at risk participate in programs and activities sponsored by the Foundation every year.

After School Centers


The organization funds seven after-school centers in Netanya, which serve around 200 elementary school children. At these community hubs, children can get help with their homework, access enrichment programs, and eat a hot meal – for many, their main meal of the day.

Higher Education


As part of its efforts to strengthen local support networks for young people, the Foundation provides scholarships of 8,000 NIS to 125 students attending Netanya Academic College each year. Scholarship recipients are in turn required to give back to the community by getting involved in running youth and children's programs. Over 1200 students have received a scholarship from the Foundation so far.

Culture and Health


The Agnes & Beny Steinmetz Foundation funds a number of organizations that work in the fields of health and culture. Additionally, it has made a grant to Tel Aviv Museum of Art, for the construction a new wing housing design and architecture galleries.
