Tmura, an Israeli non-profit, is closing on its 10-year anniversary. In a decade’s worth of work it has contributed a whopping $6.3M+ to educational programs.

Baruch Lipner, Executive Director at Tmura, attributes the good fortune these companies have seen to a combination of karma and an improved corporate culture in participating startups. Why argue with success, right?
Over 100 educational organizations have received contributions from Tmura in its 10 years of activity. These include:
Participating companies can decide themselves to which project(s) funds from their exits are allocated, or allow Tmura to do the choosing itself.
