Seed the Dream Foundation supports and raises awareness about the emergency needs of Holocaust Survivors across the United States and Israel, helping Survivors maintain dignity during their later years of life. Committed to honoring and preserving the lives and stories of those we lost and those who survived the Holocaust, Seed the Dream remains dedicated to educating about the meaning of the Holocaust for the Jewish community and the world. Our priority remains focused on combating anti-Jewish hatred and integrating lessons on contemporary antisemitism into all Holocaust Education, making these lessons accessible for people of all ages across the globe.
A Seed the Dream Foundation partnership with KAVOD, the KAVOD Survivors of the Holocaust Emergency Fund (SHEF) exponentially multiplies the dollars and vital services directly reaching Survivors in need. Leveraging the funds raised through a philanthropic national matching initiative, KAVOD SHEF works in over 30 communities across the United States to address unmet emergency needs, including; dental, medical, vision, food, emergency home care, emergency transportation, emergency home services (emergency utilities, home repair, and rent support), PPE, and emergency food delivery services.
Seed the Dream Foundation launched the Survivors of the Holocaust Emergency Fund (SHEF)-Israel to address the urgent needs of Holocaust Survivors across the State of Israel. Emergency services provided to Survivors include, but are not limited to: emergency medical needs, vision, dental, apartment accessibility renovations, panic buttons, and adult diapers.
