From Israel’s first rape crisis centers, to the passage of the law banning torture in civilian interrogations, NIF-funded organizations have driven positive social change and furthered justice and equality. Widely credited with building Israeli progressive civil society, the organization has provided over $300 million to more than 900 organizations since its inception in 1979. More than a funder, NIF also has an action arm: Shatil, the New Israel Fund Initiative for Social Change. Today, the organization advocates for democratic values, builds coalitions, empowers activists and often takes the initiative in setting the public agenda.
