About The Bruce and Ruth Rappaport Foundation
The Bruce and Ruth Rappaport Foundation serves as the primary philanthropic vehicle for the vision of Ruth and the late Bruce Rappaport. For over 30 years, the Rappaports have been donating tens of millions of dollars to the Faculty of Medicine named in their honor at the Technion in Haifa. In addition, the Foundation provides funding to the Rappaport Institute for Biomedical Research in Haifa, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and numerous other cultural institutions. For the past six years, the Foundation has contributed substantial resources towards the establishment of the Ruth Rappaport Children's Hospital at The Rambam Medical Center in Haifa. The hospital, opened in 2014, is Israel’s acclaimed, dramatically designed pediatric medical center.
About ten years ago, the Foundation inaugurated the Rappaport Prize, which today is awarded in three areas: Art (in association with the Tel Aviv Museum of Art), Biomedical Research (in association with the Rappaport Institute at the Technion) and Women Generating Change in the Israeli society (in association with 'La’Isha' women’s magazine).
