The Ramla Foundation for Education, Culture, and Development was established in 1995 to improve the quality of life of all residents of the city of Ramla by carrying out projects in the fields of education, culture, welfare, immigrant absorption, and development.

The Foundation is a multidisciplinary organization that aims to facilitate long-term, sustainable impact and growth in the city by developing and implementing programs that cater to the emerging needs of Ramla’s diverse communities.

 The Foundation operates a variety of programs, such as a municipal learning center (in partnership with the Open University), community centers, higher education and activism programs, the young adults' center, a communal conflict mitigation center, cultural institutions (a gallery, a conservatory, a museum, libraries), public health clinics, an early age center, and others.
