The restoration and expansion of the original Maimonides Research Institute in Haifa, to meet todays' needs.
In a bold initiative, Maimonides Research Institute is now developing a fund to establish the Maimonides Museum Research Institute in Los Angeles alongside a Maimonides Medical Award. Maimonides Medical Prize is a way of giving recognition to some of the outstanding accomplishments in medicine in the spirit of the practice of Maimonides medicine both in Israel and future Maimonides Institute in the U.S. The Institute plans to make this prize, the first such recognition under Jewish auspices, a coveted international prize with far-reaching benefits to medicine and medical research. In these pages, Maimonides Research Institute reviews its background and history, its proposal for the Maimonides Medical Prize, and the major opportunities for a strategic partner that will join in this remarkable venture. The restoration project would also include the establishment of a new building to host groups of Doctors from around the world for special seminars and conferences.
Help reinstate the original Maimonides Institute to its due glory and status!

Library & Retail Space - Grant Opportunities, every year millions of dollars in foundation grants are awarded to libraries. Not only are grants a good way to secure funding for our library, they also offer encouragement to create programs that connect our library with the community, schools, institutions while provide important information science research, history, education and recruit new librarians to the profession. We will apply for grants and innovative ideas for funding library collections. Some ideas will include opening a gift shop in the library for marketing and sponsorship. For example, our library can form “Friends of the Library” membership groups. Patron memberships not only ensure libraries of a relatively stable and predictable source of funds that increases as the customer base increases, they also provide a donor pool that can be used to identify prospects for larger gifts and bequests. Another way to raise money, is by Plural Funding Projects, is to host themed events, such as cultural or sports-related festivities or celebrations of the anniversaries of landmark achievements, holidays, and history. We will create a Web site that provides a wealth of practical advice for diversifying our library’s revenue streams. We will offers day camps, day care, teaching and educational programs, and food service. The retail space will be leased and we will create a shared revenues programs with operating partners. By reaching out to the community, we will be able to provide many new services that would not be possible without vision and creative ideas. Knowing the demographics of our area we can will help develop outreach programs for our citizens and our neighboring countries for our library.
