UIA Planned Giving

Your will ... 

Israel's future

grandpa and girl for planned giving

While annual donations go a long way towards meeting Israel's immediate needs, modern Israel requires long-term vision and planning of resources for the future. To address this need, UIA established Planned Giving to assist those donors who wish to make a significant gift of lasting value - either by including UIA as a Bequest in a Will or establishing an Endowment Fund.

Just a few words in your Will does a world of good and assists Israel through the work we do at Keren Hayesod – United Israel Appeal (UIA).

By leaving a bequest to Israel you will assist us in making a difference, continue to save Jewish lives and keep Israel strong. A bequest to Israel enables you to make a concrete and lasting contribution to the continuum of Jewish life as realised in the foundation and up building of the sovereign Jewish State of Israel. A bequest to Keren Hayesod – United Israel Appeal is a link between your generation and your family’s future generations.

Endowment Fund

A UIA Endowment Fund is created by donors who prefer more permanency than their current annual gift. They are drawn to how their personal Fund will continue to have a lasting impact on UIA programs in Israel today, and after their passing, in perpetuity. The minimum contribution is $50,000 (principal amount) and income generated from the investment is allocated to UIA programs in the donor’s name. 

Donor Benefits
100% tax deductible
Income generated can be designated (in the donor’s name) to a KH-UIA program/s in Israel of the donor’s choice
Donors who have passed away are remembered annually through UIA’s annual 'Yizkor' memorial program 
Annual Fund distribution reports

Future fiscal stability
Ongoing guaranteed source of funding to vital programs
Relieves pressure on annual funds

Who will my gift help?

Whether its a Bequest in your Will or an Endowment Fund, you will be contributing to Israel’s long-term future growth and financial stability, in cooperation with Israel's Government and to further National Priority Projects of key importance such as:

  • Aliyah and Absorption
  • Education
  • Youth Care and Training
