2014 Grantees

The New Israel Fund vets and approves for funding hundreds of organizations working to make Israel a better, more equal, and more democratic society.

Out of those hundreds of Israeli organizations, NIF identifies dozens of groups to receive support from NIF’s core budget. The list of Israeli organizations receiving grants from NIF’s core budget are listed below under the heading “Core Grants.”

NIF also invites our supporters to supplement these grants with funds they advise we use to support specific organizations. This allows NIF to make larger grants to core-funded groups and to support a wider circle of organizations that meet our criteria and fall within our areas of focus. These organizations are listed below under the heading “Donor Advised Grants.”

NIF has provided over $300 million to more than 900 cutting-edge organizations since our inception, ensuring that hundreds of Israeli groups now work on those issues we care most about: Democracy and Civil & Human Rights, Religious Pluralism and Tolerance, Social & Economic Justice, and Environmental Justice.

For Core Grants, the data below represents the amount authorized for the reporting year. For reasons connected to the schedule of our grant payments, this figure may differ from the amount paid to a grantee in the reporting year. Both amounts are listed in NIF’s financial reports, which you can find here. For Donor Advised Grants, the data below represents the amount paid in the reporting year.
