Arts, Culture and Sports

A dedicated patron of the arts, the Clore Israel Foundation has consistently given its support to a wide variety of cultural endeavours. The Foundation’s record of contributions to the realm of arts, culture, sports and recreation is a concrete expression of the desire to improve the quality of life for as many people as possible in Israel.

In its efforts to enhance the edification and entertainment experience of the Israeli population, the Foundation has supported both high-profile landmarks and smaller, less publicized local projects throughout the country. From music and dance to art and architecture, the Foundation has championed projects and programmes that stir the spirit and stimulate the creative mind.
