About the New Israel Fund

The New Israel Fund is the leading organisation advancing democracy and equality in Israel.

We are a partnership of Israelis and supporters of Israel worldwide, dedicated to a vision of Israel as both the Jewish homeland and a shared society at peace with itself and its neighbours. NIF supports leaders and activists working for civil and human rights for all.

As the founder and funder of most of Israel’s progressive civil society, we have provided over £225 million (incl £25 million from the UK) to more than 900 organisations since our inception. NIF’s focus today is on five key issue areas: Shared Society & Combating Racism, Human Rights & Democracy, Social & Economic Justice, Palestinian-Israeli Society and Religious Freedom. Our action arm Shatil provides Israel’s social change community with hands-on assistance. In addition, NIF/Shatil builds coalitions and spearheads campaigns.
