New Israel Fund

"Founded in 1979, the New Israel Fund advances civil rights and social justice for all Israelis, and believes the only secure Israel is a just Israel. An international partnership of Israelis, Americans, Canadians and Europeans, NIF pioneered the funding of Israel's social change organizations and advocacy groups, and is widely credited with transforming the social justice and human rights communities in Israel. Since 1979, NIF has granted more than $200 million to 800 national and community-based Israeli organizations." [1]

"Shatil, part of the New Israel Fund, is committed to strengthening civil society within Israel, among Israel’s Arab citizens, and in regards to the Palestinian Territories." [2]

Board of Directors (As of January 2005)
