Genet Property Group is proud of our President, Ben Genet, and his wife Dorit Genet for their efforts in creating the Ethiopian-Israeli College Supplemental Fund. Ben Genet began this fund in 2005 after visiting Ethiopia and witnessing firsthand the needs of Ethiopian students as they move to Israel. It began with a thoughtful and personal donation in memory of Ben Genet’s father, but soon began an initiative that has raised over $500,000. This year, six more Ethiopian-Israeli students will be able to attend college at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliyah thanks to the efforts of Ben and Dorit Genet, and those who donate to this worthwhile and helpful cause.
As a part of the scholarship fund, tuition for the students is fully subsidized with $11,000 going toward the full tuition of a student, and each student receives tutoring, a free laptop computer, and opportunities for securing internships worldwide. And while the scholarship fund is able to help many students reach higher education and their goals, there are still only about 1,250 Ethiopian students who attended their first year of college. Continued dedication and support is important to ensure the education and opportunities that students deserve.
Genet Property Group is honored to have such a giving President and to be able to support the education of Ethiopian-Israeli students through Ben Genet’s efforts and successes. We strive to provide not only excellent service in the leasing of properties, but also excellent support for charitable organizations to influence and support the lives of our friends, neighbors, and even those who may be far away but still need a helping hand. We hope that in providing for and supporting an individual or business’s leasing and property needs, that individual or business is also supported in doing their part to aid our community and our world.
