About the New Israel Fund
NIF is the leading organisation advancing democracy and equality for all Israelis, based on the vision of Israel’s founders. From Israel’s first rape crisis centres, to the passage of the law banning torture in civilian interrogations, NIF- funded organisations have driven positive social change and furthered justice and equality for over 30 years. Widely credited with building Israeli progressive civil society, we have provided over £225 million (incl £25 million from the UK) to more than 850 organisations since our inception in 1979.
We are more than a funder: NIF is at philanthropy’s cutting edge thanks in large part to our action arm Shatil, the New Israel Fund Initiative for Social Change. Today, NIF builds coalitions, is a leading advocate for democratic values, empowers activists and often takes the initiative in setting the public agenda. In the UK, we deliver a wide range of events and programming activities reaching an ever growing audience and we raise vital funds to support our work in Israel.
