Canadian support has generously increased in response to the growing needs of the Israeli community.
Now there is a Canadian organization dedicated to providing a secure financial link between the two countries in addition to helping Israeli non-profit organization build a new donor base in Canada or strengthen an existing one.

Who we are

With offices in Toronto and in Israel, the Ne’eman Foundation provides Canadians with a wide selection of tax-deductible projects in Israel that are monitored to guarantee that allocated funds are used accordingly and comply with the requirements of Canadian tax legislation.

The Ne’eman Foundation provides timely transfers of funds to Israel, thus enabling Israeli non-profit organizations to implement their projects expeditiously.

What we do

The Ne’eman Foundation supports projects that reduce or eliminate poverty, advance education, religion and quality of life, and promote charitable initiatives for community development in Israeli communities. Additionally, we support projects throughout Israel that provide health care services and products that prevent and manage serious threats to health; projects that provide therapy to accident victims, as well as counseling and support to individuals with cancer. The Ne’eman Foundation also supports programs that provide Israeli public ambulance, paramedic, or firefighting services.
