Myisrael was created to enhance the lives of people in need and to make the experience of giving meaningful to you, the donor. We believe that this way, you’ll find more reasons to give and transform even more lives in Israel.
BEING A BIG FISH IN A SMALL POND
MEANS YOU CAN MAKE
A REAL DIFFERENCE
We have carefully selected a broad range of causes in Israel, so that each of you, whatever your reason for giving, will find something that resonates. We distribute ALL the funds you donate directly to the causes you choose. And we feedback so that you know exactly how your support has transformed lives.
We make giving personal so you know where your money is going and can be sure it is truly making a difference. We hope that this will encourage you to become a regular supporter of Myisrael and to connect to one or more of our under-the-radar causes. Next time you’re in Israel, we’d love to organise a personal visit so that you can see with your own eyes their remarkable work in action.
At Myisrael, 100% of your donation reaches the charity that you choose.
When Myisrael launched, we made a bold promise to our donors that 100% of their donations would go directly to charitable causes in Israel. That promise meant that we were committed to finding another way to cover all our expenses, even down to the credit card fees for online donations.
Of course, despite keeping them to a minimum, Myisrael does have costs. We depend on private donors and sponsors to cover everything from staff salaries to office supplies, from bank fees to travel costs.
These donors are some of our most dedicated supporters. Their investment fuels our long-term mission to continue passing 100% of your donations to our charitable projects in Israel. When you donate through Myisrael, you can be confident that every penny will go directly to helping people in need.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Myisrael was established by Danni Franks in March 2008, three years after she made Aliyah from London. She wanted to create a meaningful way to connect UK donors with small but inspirational charities in Israel that had previously fallen under their radar. The idea was to create something simple and direct, something without bureaucracy, and something which would allow donors to truly understand the impact of their support.
The concept was Myisrael and the process is the one you see before you.
Danni says: "I've met so many people whose lives have changed, or been saved by the generosity of Myisrael donors. I've met children who have a chance of breaking the cycle of poverty they grew up in because of the after-school programmes they are able to attend. I've met mothers who were able to escape abusive husbands because of the support they were given. And I've visited housebound elderly people who have a reason to get up in the morning because they join a variety of classes through a live TV link."
Your donations enable this amazing work in Israel to continue and inspire others to do the same.
Our team is small, happy and dedicated to making a big impact in Israel.
