The Institute for Law and Philanthropy
The Institute for Law and Philanthropy (ILP) is a research body established at Tel Aviv University Law School in October 2014. In line with TAU Law's commitment towards social justice, ILP’s mission is to help integrate philanthropy into Israel’s socioeconomic policy and support the country’s philanthropic sector in its quest to foster a more equitable and prosperous society.
The Institute operates in three predominant areas – research, education, and networking & multi-sector dialogue. Taking an international perspective, the Institute strives to develop research capacity, to foster creative knowledge exchange between academic and practice communities, and to disseminate the evidence base to inform policy and practice.
Central to our ethos is the fundamental value we place upon research. The Institute, therefore, aims to increase effective philanthropy in Israel by researching and disseminating critical scholarship in law, economics, political science, psychology, social work and sociology, with a view to providing valuable insights that can contribute to the formulation of a robust policy for philanthropy.
The Institute aims to provide students, lawyers and jurists with the training and tools to assume their role as agents of social change and advocates of philanthropy.
Attentive to practitioners and other agents in the field, ILP hosts a series of annual events, such as international conferences, roundtable forums and working-group discussions to create a platform for dialogue among the non-profit, philanthropic, business and government sectors.
