Launched in April 2014, the Foundation Futures Planned Giving Program is the engine through which Birthright Israel Foundation will secure the continuity of the Birthright Israel trip. Foundation Futures offers giving opportunities through a variety of financial vehicles — from direct bequests and retirement account distributions, to specialized endowment funds and the new Birthright Israel Charitable Gift Annuity. Our staff here at Birthright Israel Foundation is prepared to work with you to establish the appropriate giving structure that suits your current financial needs as well as the needs of your family.

Join the growing ranks of Birthright Israel supporters who have committed to ensuring the long-term sustainability of the Birthright Israel trip. As a member of the Foundation Futures Planned Giving Program you will receive invitations to events sponsored by Foundations Futures and become part of the Foundation Futures giving community. There are no dues or obligations — we simply want to thank you for your generosity and honor you for inspiring others.

Birthright Israel Will Work with You to Meet Your Goals

Planned Giving is about you. It is about finding solutions for you and perpetuating your values. It does not have to be complicated or risky and serves as an opportunity to take control of your long-term financial goals. Setting up a planned gift for Birthright Israel is about fulfilling your desire to contribute significantly to Jewish legacy while securing your future — thus potentially making a much larger gift than you thought you could afford.

We will work with you to find an integrated solution to meet the needs of both your family and Birthright Israel, for today and tomorrow.

About Birthright Israel Foundation

Since 1999 Birthright Israel Foundation has helped raise the funds necessary to send over 600,000 young adults from 67 countries to Israel as part of the 10-day, life-changing experience that is the Birthright Israel trip. Our annual campaign is the backbone of our fundraising efforts and has propelled us towards the goal of sending 51,000 young adults to Israel every year. At the same time, we here at Birthright Israel Foundation are working to create the financial infrastructure necessary to not only support our yearly participation goals, but also to firmly establish Birthright Israel as an engine of Jewish community growth, engagement, and continuity for generations to come.
