Our Mission

About:

Let’s Talk About a Growing Society
Approximately 120,000 Israelis have available assets of at least 1 million dollars. Less than 1% of them donate above $30K annually to non-profit organizations. This is quite amazing.
Israeli society is in the midst of constant growth. We like to define ourselves as the Start-Up Nation, but the growth of wealth and innovation come with increased social gaps and needs.
Closing the Gap
There is a gap between the ability of wealthy Israelis to give and their actual giving. At Committed to Give, we’re here to close the gap by creating a vibrant market for new Israeli social funders.
The social sector is where needs and gaps meet innovation and creativity. Israel’s social sector plays a prominent role in everyone’s lives. It is there for us throughout life’s most important events – from birth, throughout adolescence and when raising a family. It is also there for us during unexpected times – sickness, poverty, post trauma and special needs.
Yet in order to thrive, Israel’s social sector requires resources, this is the less glamorous side of growth. Israel’s social sector requires wise social funding to benefit society at full strength. Current funding are not enough to meet the challenges on the horizon. Private funding promotes innovation and social entrepreneurship. They are the growth engine empowering Israel’s civil society – and that’s why they can make a difference.

Who We Are
Committed to Give is a group of social funders who work together to sprout new and engaged social funders within Israel’s society

Our Mission
Our mission is to increase the number of wealthy Israelis who choose to invest in Israel’s social sector, in a meaningful and sustainable manner. We aim to create a new reality. Nothing less.
How Do We Achieve Our Goals?
By inspiring people who care about their society to take the next step forward. People who are super-busy, and yet are not fulfilled by financial success alone. People who also desire to succeed in social doing. We are here to enable them to begin.
