The Foundation was endowed by the Jewish Community of Prague with two houses, one in Karlova Street 185 and one in Lodecká Street 1184. Part of the yield from these houses is used to finance the social a health services for survivors of Shoah part is used to cover a part of the operational costs of the joint-stock company Matana that is in charge of upkeep of the above mentioned premises. The operational costs of the Foundation are also paid from this yield.
The Foundation commissioned the joint-stock company Matana with the upkeep of its estate. The Foundation has a one half-time employee who is in charge of all administrative work and looks after fulfilling all obligations as given by the state.
