The Jewish Funders Network
The Jewish Funders Network (JFN) is an international organization dedicated to advancing the quality and growth of Jewish philanthropy. JFN’s members include independent philanthropists, foundation trustees and foundation professionals. JFN is a unique community that seeks to transform the nature of Jewish giving in both thought and action. Membership is open to individuals and foundations that donate through the lens of Jewish values, regardless if the funds go to a Jewish cause or to a cause more broadly defined.
In 2008, the NADAV Foundation partnered with JFN in opening the JFN’s Israel office and supports its work among Israeli philanthropists. The Israel office tailors JFN’s service and message to meet the needs of Israel’s unique philanthropic community. More than 80 Israeli entities have joined JFN and many have already taken advantage of the networking opportunities JFN has facilitated – along with the customized tools which are being developed to strengthen grant making across the board in Israel.
NADAV’s president, Irina Nevzlin Kogan, is an active member on the board of the Jewish Funders Network.
