Charting impact

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

Teach for Israel aims to build impactful and solid relations between the People and the Land of Israel and fellow Faith Based individuals that share the same values. Through these efforts, we build bridges where common faith-based causes, issues, ideas, and experiences are shared openly and will strengthen humanity.

Teach for Israel accomplishes its goals through building comprehensive biblical, historical, and spiritual educational and charitable experiences using The Israel Bible as its core common denominator. The organization uses numerous initiatives to engage and educate our audience daily. This is accomplished through both digital and physical interactions between our team and our subscribers, donors, and purchasers. Within our education efforts, we communicate through two daily newsletters sharing both current events and inspirational teachings that impact both Israel and our audience's lives. In addition, we run joint learning programs, provide touring experiences within Israel, and offer new publications monthly. All of this leads to supporting 7 impactful causes through charitable campaigns and projects that change people's lives within the Land of Israel.

Teach for Israel has a full professional team to plan, operate, execute, and deliver positive results. The team is structured into three core sub-teams: management, marketing, and relations efforts. This provides a comprehensive and impactful experience for our dedicated donors, end recipients, and the organizations we support. Our organization was founded over a decade ago and has a solid track record of significant impact on people's lives within Israel. We value and operate under strong transparency values with our donors which has earned us the highest-ranking recognition in the charity industry.

Teach for Israel interacts with millions of people a month. The organization has extensive educational initiatives that include new monthly publications, online learning, live events, tour experiences, and much more. In addition, Teach for Israel makes impactful contributions to over 7 charitable causes monthly as well as raise funds for special projects relevant to our mission. For example, in 2021, we raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Israeli farmers during the Shmitta (Sabbatical) Year. In 2022, we helped settle orphans displaced in the Ukrainian War. In 2023, we are on track to plant tens of thousands of trees, among many other projects. Our motto is "Every Day Counts" and "Every Day We Can Change Someone's Life for the Better."

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    We serve Christians who believe that the return of the People of Israel to the Land of Israel, and the establishment of the State of Israel are the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies. We also serve Jews who identify as Zionists or Religious Zionists. Both groups believe in the power of charitable giving to grassroots organizations that directly help the needy and that plant trees in the Land of Israel.

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Our donors have loved the successful charity campaigns we've run to help Holocaust survivors, care for terror victims, support refugee orphans, feed the needy, and plant trees. Recently, however, a group of donors expressed an interest in helping to financially support single pregnant women and mothers who are struggling to balance motherhood and earning a living. We took our donors seriously and ran a campaign to assist single pregnant Israeli women. It was a wildly popular and successful campaign that gave our donors tremendous fulfillment and helped the women, their babies, and their children. We got such a positive response that we've extended the charity campaign for a second month (and possibly longer).

  • Which of the following feedback practices does your organization routinely carry out?

    We collect feedback from the people we serve at least annually, We take steps to get feedback from marginalized or under-represented people, We aim to collect feedback from as many people we serve as possible, We take steps to ensure people feel comfortable being honest with us, We look for patterns in feedback based on demographics (e.g., race, age, gender, etc.), We look for patterns in feedback based on people’s interactions with us (e.g., site, frequency of service, etc.), We engage the people who provide feedback in looking for ways we can improve in response, We act on the feedback we receive, We tell the people who gave us feedback how we acted on their feedback

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    We don't have any major challenges to collecting feedback

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
