Introducing the Future Resilience Fund - FastTracking Recovery in the Middle East


In August, we shared our thoughts on how technology and new business models can make humanitarian relief more effective and efficient. In this space, increased efficiency & effectiveness = decreased suffering & loss. Our recent experiences working in the Middle East have made it crystal clear - we must accelerate the development of innovative solutions in this space. It also clarified that philanthropy must play a role in seeding ideas so it can be scaled by the private sector and the government.


That’s why we’re excited to introduce the Future Resilience Fund (FRF), our new philanthropic fund that will operate in Israel and in the Middle East region. 


The FRF is a new kind of philanthropic fund that aims to:


  • Increase the total pool of capital available for rebuilding efforts.

  • Ensure that recovery efforts address critical issues that pre-existed October 7th (rebuilding better).

  • Leverage insights from Israel's recovery to benefit global humanitarian efforts, alleviating suffering worldwide and enhancing Israel's reputation.

  • Empower local communities to tackle bottlenecks they face.


We achieve this by supporting strategic initiatives with multiplier impacts, both financially (attracting more funds) and socially (creating a ripple effect of change). FRF provides grants, loans, and investments to both for-profit and non-for-profit organizations.


We leverage our unique capabilities in global humanitarian aid as well as our deep network within the middle east impact ecosystem.


The fund is led by Alina Shkolnikov, PollyLabs’ Chief Partnership Officer, with support from PollyLabs’s skilled team and a diverse advisory board. 


Whether you’re an individual, organization, or business, there are many ways to get involved. Visit our FRF website or reach out to alina@polly-labs.com to learn more
