Jewish Funders Network is pleased to be working in partnership with the GANDYR Foundation as they begin to work on an exciting new initiative: Working Together. This initiative has been developed in partnership with the Israeli government to encourage cross-sector coordination and cooperation integrating at-risk youth into meaningful places of employment. The GANDYR Foundation is committed to supporting education as a pathway to meaningful employment. By bringing government, private sector, and philanthropists together to work on this project, we have a unique opportunity to develop a lasting program to improve the long-term employment opportunities for youth in Israel.

At JFN we value partnership, areyvut, and strive to help donors to connect with each other and to root their giving in Jewish traditions, ethics, and values. We believe that the Working Together program exemplifies this value, and look forward to your invaluable participation.

Join us at the JFN offices on October 15, 9am-11:30am EDT, for a breakfast to learn more about how we can support this important initiative as a community.
