Why These 18 Israeli Donors Are Helping Get Protective Equipment to North American Jewish Social Service Providers

In a profound shift from the status quo, 18 Israeli funders have come together to donate $100,000 to a project purchasing and distributing personal protective equipment (PPE) to North American Jewish human services agencies responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Israelis, a combination of individual philanthropists and foundations, are members of Jewish Funders Network-Israel, which has grown over the past 11 years to become a community of Israeli funders who aim to expand their impact through partnerships and strategic giving.
