Organisation profile

The Maurice and Vivienne Wohl Philanthropic Foundation

Established in the UK in 2003, The Maurice and Vivienne Wohl Philanthropic Foundation seeks to continue the philanthropic tradition of its founder, the late Maurice Wohl, and honour his memorandum of wishes.

The Foundation supports charitable organizations in the UK, Israel, Central and Eastern Europe. A significant proportion of its funds is earmarked towards capital projects that provide vital infrastructure to Jewish communities.

The Foundation’s grant-making is centred primarily on strengthening sustainable institutions and projects in the following areas:

  • Health, welfare and medical sciences in Israel, including science and technology education.
  • Needy populations in Israel, with an emphasis on children and young adults, to include the Haredi Community.
  • Improving the quality of Jewish life in Central and Eastern Europe, including health, welfare and education.

The Foundation does not accept unsolicited applications. Instead, the Foundation hopes to identify excellent grantees; to build the organisational strength and sustainability of these grantees; and where possible or practical to strengthen and sustain the wider field. It is committed to supporting charities with an excellent track record in pursuing best practices and reaching sustainability, who can demonstrate that they are serving the public good in the above areas.
