New Israel Fund of Canada is committed to fostering the development of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state as envisioned in its Declaration of Independence. We believe that Israel can live up to its founders’ vision of a state that ensures complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants, without regard to religion, race, gender or national identity.
The New Israel Fund of Canada (NIFC) supports projects and programs in Israel that strengthen and safeguard civil and human rights, bridge social and economic gaps, and foster tolerance and religious pluralism for all of its residents.
For almost 30 years, NIFC has worked with the New Israel Fund family, helping hundreds of grassroots Israeli organizations. Its activities have included project funding, capacity building, leadership development and coalition building.
According to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, “there is hardly any significant socially oriented organization in Israel today that does not owe its existence to the New Israel Fund”.
The New Israel Fund of Canada’s founders wanted to connect with Israel in a way that reflected their progressive values. Our supporters love Israel. In their support, they build a community of Canadians committed to fulfilling Israel’s vision.
