Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
The New Israel Fund Australia Foundation undertook initiatives to educate the local Australian Jewish community, as well as wider Australian society, to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of civil and human rights, social and economic justice, democracy, diversity, reconciliation and peace.We brought speakers to Australia to run community lectures, speak at conferences, run activities in high schools, meet with university students and young adults, and meet with likeminded organisations in Australia. Additionally, NIF Australia ran its own educational initiatives, through workshops and other activities, as well as providing a source of news for its supporters through our newsletter and social media channels.We also distributed funds to grantees of the New Israel Fund, which gives grants to support those areas of interest in Israel. In total, the New Israel Fund disburses more than $40 million each year to civil society in Israel in the areas of democracy and civil and human rights, religious pluralism and tolerance, social and economic justice and the environment. NIF also runs Shatil, the organisations action and empowerment arm, which provides services to hundreds of non-profits across the spectrum in Israel.
