Our Story

We believe

That connecting Arab philanthropists as well as sharing and developing philanthropic knowledge will greatly increase donations and enhance their social impact. This type of collaborative network will also increase the members' sense of belonging and social cohesion while simultaneously addressing the various needs of society.

Our Story

Qudra – Arab Philanthropists Network was founded in 2019 when a group of Arab businesspeople, prominent donors in the community, met to discuss the strategic development of philanthropy in Arab society. The group decided to establish an organization that would unite Arab philanthropists, develop the field of philanthropy and make it accessible in order to achieve the greatest value both for the philanthropists themselves and for the organizations and populations they serve.

Our Model

Qudra operates as a network comprising Arab philanthropists who contribute to a variety of nonprofit organizations. The network’s organizational model is an innovative and first-of-its-kind model in the field of philanthropy in the Arab world.

Qudra provides opportunities to its members to network with philanthropists who are among the most influential business leaders in Israel and around the world. The network also provides a platform for knowledge-sharing and philanthropic collaborations, alongside advisory services for effective giving and tools for creating professional work partnerships with grantee organizations.
