SFI Corona Update

A message from SFI 

Dear friends, We hope you are staying safe during these unsettling times. While the effects of COVID-19 are being felt wide and far, we note the pronounced effects of the pandemic on medical staff and on our social systems.  

Social Finance Israel (SFI) is dedicated as ever to supporting and championing solutions in the face of current challenges. Our efforts on behalf of low-income, vulnerable and at-risk groups – the groups most affected by this crisis - are bolstered by ongoing partnerships with Israeli government entities, philanthropic foundations, NGOs, and committed impact investors. SFI staff continue to work from home.

We are fortunate that our work can be done remotely.   

Detailed status updates related to our social impact bonds and other projects have been shared with the relevant partners and investors and we are grateful for their ongoing support.  More than ever, we see the need for all stakeholders to work together. Bringing different groups together around actionable solutions is our proven strength. In the face of the current economic and social fallout, we are determined to lead the effort by making our knowledge, skills and networks available, especially now. 

At this time, we are thinking of the tens of thousands of people whose lives have already been impacted by this outbreak. We are continuously inspired by fellow impact investors around the world who too are working tirelessly to extend economic relief to portfolio companies and to their wider communities. 

These are extraordinary times. Should you wish to contact us, please don´t hesitate to reach out. We will remain in close touch over the coming weeks. We are confident that by standing together, we will make it through. 

Warm wishes,  

Yaron Neudorfer and the team at Social Finance Israel
