Welcome to myisrael

myisrael is a new UK charity offering you a more direct way to donate to specially selected charities in Israel.

Since its launch in March 2008, funds donated through myisrael have touched the lives of more than 2,000 vulnerable children and adults across Israel.

myisrael currently works with 18 charities in Israel, each doing amazing work, each desperate for funds and each virtually unknown in the UK.

The overheads of myisrael are funded by a handful of specific donations so we promise that 100% of your donation goes directly to the charity you choose.

Israel is a special country close to many of our hearts. It is also a country where more than one in three children live in poverty, where 24% of the population is classified as disabled and 62% of Ethiopian immigrant families have no income at all.

Despite the efforts of the Government to help combat many of the social and economic problems that exist within Israel society, there are still so many vulnerable children and adults who need further help and support.

The good news is that there are thousands of organisations working with this aim in mind and myisrael has sourced, researched and selected several of these for you to support.

myisrael is based on the concepts of:

promoting small charities in Israel that are little known in the UK

giving directly to grassroots projects in Israel

enabling donors to choose where their money goes and to see its impact

ensuring that 100% of every donation to a project goes directly there

building strong relationships with projects and donors

myisrael has had a fantastic start, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds and impacting the lives of over 2,000 vulnerable people for the better.

However, there are so many more projects in Israel that need our support and so much more work to do at our existing projects - we hope you'll help us help them.
