Aviram Foundation is a registered association founded in 2021 by the businessman and entrepreneur Ziv Aviram and his four children: Gili, Nir, Noa, and Gal. The foundation continues the work and spirit of the family’s mother, Idit Aviram, who passed away from cancer in 2015. The foundation’s work reflects the family’s worldview and values – a combination of innovation, social involvement, connection to the land and nature of Israel, and providing opportunities to improve the daily reality of the citizens of Israel and the Middle East; these days, and in the future.
Innovation as an engine of improvement and combining business with social benefit for humanity has always been a part of Ziv Aviram’s ethos – from Mobileye, which created a revolution in the field of road safety and changed the transportation industry, to OrCam, which provides life-changing solutions for people with visual or hearing impairments.
Love of the land of Israel and its people is an integral part of the Aviram family’s heritage, as well as educating to initiate, be proactive, and promote technological literacy, research, and medicine in Israel. Thanks to the family’s diversity, business experience, and financial ability, the foundation will be able to influence in a variety of areas, provide opportunities to those who need it and create an improvement in the Israeli society and in the entire region.
