COMPANY BACKGROUND AND CULTURE

We collaborate with a variety of important institutions and organizations in Israel to build social service infrastructure to benefit vulnerable populations such as youth-at-risk, victims of domestic abuse, special needs children, veterans and the poor.

JNF directs your donation dollars to where they are needed most. When you donate to the Jewish National Fund, donors can choose to direct their support towards our varied programs and projects that transform the lives of Israel’s citizens in every corner of the country.
