Who We Are

We demonstrate our love for the people of Israel with capital projects that address the needs of all its people with dignity and compassion.

Bnai Zion Foundation is a U.S.-based nonprofit that identifies and funds capital projects in Israel in the areas of healthcare, education, community, seniors, and family across the age spectrum. We were founded as a community of Americans who love Israel. With no political or religious affiliation, Bnai Zion is a home where supporters of Israel from all walks of life can come together to strengthen each other and the people of Israel.

Since 1908, Bnai Zion Foundation has raised funds for over 100 humanitarian projects in Israel that have contributed to the physical, mental, and social well-being of Israeli society. Bnai Zion’s focus on investments in capital projects ensures long-term impact with effects that can be seen across the country.

By working with partners on the ground, those who care about the people of Israel are able to help build a safer, more unified society. Over its history, Bnai Zion has developed an extensive network of social services organizations and governmental agencies known for their excellence and social impact. We help ensure a lasting legacy by extending those partnerships over multiple projects and years.
