Legacy Giving

Meet NIF’s Legacy Society Members:

Mary Ann Stein (z”l)

photo of Mary Ann SteinWhen I first heard about the New Israel Fund, I understood its importance to Israel and to me. It has played the central role in building and reinforcing a strong civil society in Israel through providing financial, technical, networking, and other supports to multiple NGOs. It has been a part of my life and central to my ability to fulfill my moral responsibility and Jewish identity. It has facilitated my giving to effective organizations working on justice, education, diversity, and health.

As a longtime NIF Board member, I have developed some of the most meaningful and important relationships with a diverse, impressive group of people—Jews, Arabs, Ethiopian and Russian immigrants—and been able to partner with them in supporting and advocating programs and policies that strengthen Israel’s democracy and purpose as described by its founders in Israel’s Declaration of Independence.

I want to help NIF respond to current needs and to build its capacity to sustain its work in the future.
