Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Helping Israel Fund's goals are:

- Provide humanitarian aid to members of the Israel Defense Forces
- Support the bereaved families of fallen IDF soldiers.
- Support first responders in Israel.

The Helping Israel Fund accomplishes its goals by distributing its funds to responsible screened partner organizations with similar missions.

Charity golf tournaments in the United States and online fundraising play a major role in the Helping Israel Fund strategy.

This is done with an eye towards minimizing any organizational fees in order to ensure the largest impact.

The Helping Israel Fund has major supporters in the United States and elsewhere that help us to accomplish its goals. The Helping Israel Fund has strong connections with partner organizations.

Among many things, the Helping Israel Fund has:
- Purchased ambucycles for emergency responders in Israel
- Provided financial support to grieving widows
- Given scholarships to soldiers in need
- Helped supply impoverished soldiers and their families with basic necessities
- Supported such organizations as: Yashar LaChayal, United Hatzalah, the Lone Soldier Center, FIDF
