"The future of Israel lies in the Negev"
-David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister

For the past 20 years, The Negev Foundation has been dedicated to helping the Negev grow and making the desert bloom through economic and agricultural development. Through our mission, The Negev Foundation is contributing to the transformation of Israel’s southern region into a place where futuristic technologies become reality. In the Negev lie both Israel’s Biblical past and its 21st-Century future.

The Negev Foundation channels the efforts of many partners: high tech and biotech industries, regional agricultural research centers and for-profit growers’ associations, multinational agri-businesses and individual farmers, kibbutzim, moshavim, and universities, those looking to make a profit, and those looking to make a difference. All have much to add, but also much to gain by developing the Negev.

The Negev Foundation invites you to partner with us, whether philanthropically or as a for-profit investor, in our many dynamic and historic projects toward the advancement of this thriving region. We truly believe in the visionary foresight of David Ben Gurion— that the Negev holds Israel’s greatest promise.

“On what is accomplished in the Negev,” – maintained Ben-Gurion – “Israel will stand or fall.”
