KIEDF was established in Israel in 1994 upon the initiative of the Koret Foundation of San Francisco to demonstrate that philanthropic funds could be used efficiently to stimulate economic development and employment opportunity in the private sector in Israel.


KIEDF works to create employment opportunity and social equality for Israeli small businesses, microenterprises and social initiatives and is recognized as the preeminent Israeli private source of credit and business services.
