Sheatufim – Strategies for Social Impact

About

Sheatufim was established in 2006 by philanthropists and social entrepreneurs from Israel, Europe and the United States. It rests on their shared vision of a pluralistic and proactive civil society that fosters dialog and connects non-profit organizations, government offices and philanthropists in Israel. 

Our cause

At Sheatufim, we believe that in order to achieve meaningful social change, all three sectors (government, business and non-profits) must join forces  for a common cause. Our job is to provide them with the needed tools to do so.

We seek to generate a profound change in the mindset of senior executives, policymakers and people of influence by encouraging them to transition from an Ego-System – where each organization operates on its own to attain its goals – to an Eco-System – where organizations from the three sectors work together to transform the existing social reality. 

Our way

We have expertise in developing and leading diverse platforms for cross-sector collaborations and dialogs between senior government officials, non-profit CEOs, philanthropists, and prominent members of the business community. The considerable experience we have gained over the years enables us to take a complex process and make it more on target and more goal-oriented. Our close familiarity with the three sectors gives us the means to create an effective discourse between them and enlist the necessary stakeholders for a successful journey on the way to achieving the objective at hand.

Our work

The Sheatufim team formulates social impact strategies which are founded on clear, measurable and proven methodologies for creating change. Our work relies on the latest  knowhow acquired in the course of our activities, making Sheatufim an authority and source of information that other leaders of shared social impact initiatives in Israel can learn from.

Collective Impact and Impact Spheres

While collective impact is a strategy for solving complex social problems that incorporates collaboration between the three sectors, Impact sphere is an action framework tailored only to third sector organizations. We promote both strategies, which rely on a common theoretical base, as a means for promoting social impact in Israel.

Cross Sector Dialog and Government Participatory Processes

Since 2008, we have facilitated over 25 public participation processes for government offices in Israel. Participants included senior representatives from government, business, philanthropy and non-profit organizations, in addition to thousands of participants outside the core circle. These processes advance legislation and government decisions. They also contributed to the design and development of innovative participation models and inter-organizational infrastructures, while at the same time venturing into new areas of activity and reaching new target audiences.
