Legacy Giving

Values. Vision. Legacy.

Imagine an Israel where all people are treated equally;
an Israel that is democratic, vibrant, and just.

Since 1979, the New Israel Fund has championed the vision of an Israel true to our core human values of inclusiveness, equality, justice, and peace.

In the decades ahead, achieving that vision will be NIF’s legacy.

Now we ask you to make it part of your legacy.

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the New Israel Fund, we launched a special Legacy Giving Campaign with the goal of raising $40 million.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of the NIF family, the campaign was a stunning success—to date, we have raised over $50 million!

These funds will empower NIF to pursue its mission of strengthening democracy and equality in Israel by building up NIF’s endowment, thereby providing greater financial stability over the long term.

We hope you will join us.
