The impact of philanthropy 

The Azrieli Foundation

The Azrieli Accelerator was created thanks to the generous support of the Azrieli Foundation and their commitment to investing in initiatives that create stronger, healthier communities. With the Azrieli Foundation’s transformational investment, we are committed to improving the lives of all those affected by neurodevelopmental disabilities by enhancing collaborations across the university, in the community, and throughout the global network.
