Where do the funds go?
One-hundred percent of money raised goes directly to our overseas partners, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and the Jewish Agency for Israel, and to non-profit agencies they support, for their activities and programs in Israel that support the most vulnerable populations in Israel’s embattled north.
How are IEC funds being used?
During the crisis, funds went toward immediate, emergency needs such as:
Bringing children in embattled areas for day trips in relatively safer areas ;
Counseling people suffering from trauma and training trauma counselors;
Providing activities for children in shelters;
Aiding the physically and/or developmentally disabled;
Delivering food and medical assistance to elderly dependent on home services suspended due to attacks;
Adding staff for elderly day-care facilities;
Equipping shelters with air conditioners, TVs and other necessities;
Offering temporary housing for those uprooted from conflict areas;
Providing emergency medical services;
Providing readiness programs to help children adjust to being back in school;
Extending small-business grants to help those impacted by the war.
