JFN Israel was established on 2008 with the goal of allowing Israeli philanthropists, who are becoming more and more involved in JFN activities, to exchange ideas regarding their activities and expand their giving circles in Israel and overseas. In addition, JFN Israel counsels overseas philanthropists who express interest in making a difference within Israeli society and/or expanding their influence in Israel. Today there are over 100 families and foundations members in Israel. The annual conference takes place in Israel once in three years.
JFN Israel is an accessible, intimate and inspiring meeting place for philanthropists who are interested in initiating and taking part in active and effective philanthropy development. We help each and every one of our members acquire tailor-made tools geared towards creating true social change in Israel. This happens through effective networking, group-thinking regarding a particular topic of interest, participation in conferences and programs, philanthropic collaboration and joint social ventures. Every activity we initiate carries our vision for social change, realized through connections between people, ideas and initiatives, while creating added value for each and every member, according to his or her needs and philanthropic agenda, in the process.
The strength of JFN Israel is manifested in its members. JFN members are philanthropists with a myriad of opinions, views and values, who come together time and again within creative group thinking sessions, groundbreaking programs and effective collaborations that carry the philanthropic world steps ahead and paint a fertile and innovative future of giving. JFN members care deeply about Israeli society; they are aware of the current changes within the philanthropic world, share and compare information and initiate effective and up-to-date work methods that create true change in Israel.
