About the Sponsor
The Abraham Fund is a not-for-profit fundraising and
educational organization established to enhance coexistence, specifically
through funding and promoting Jewish-Arab coexistence programs in Israel.
Named for the revered patriarch of two great peoples, Jews
and Arabs, through his offspring, Isaac and Ishmael, The Abraham
Fund helps reconcile the children of Abraham while ensuring the
integrity and maintaining the continuity of both their identities
and heritages. Adhering to ideology neither left nor right, The
Abraham Fund strives to find common ground amongst all Israeli citizens.
In cultural and community centers, hospitals and clinics,
schools and universities, Jews and Arabs are working together
sometimes quietly, behind the scenes, sometimes out front, in public view
to develop and implement programs and enterprises that
enhance mutual understanding, fight stereotyping, increase tolerance
and acceptance, and promote national civility.
Enhancing Jewish-Arab coexistence in Israel has proven to
be viable, effective and essential to Israel's security and
stability. Coexistence can be learned, practiced and put into effect by
caring, courageous people working with trained specialists in the field.
One by one, person by person, project by project, The Abraham
Fund is helping to ensure a democratic society and secure a stable
future. In Israel, a country rich in culture, tradition, history and
diversity, coexistence is the only alternative.
Founded in 1989, The Abraham Fund is registered as a
not-for-profit organization IRS 501(c)(3) and as a public charity IRS
509(a)(2) in the United States and New York State. The Abraham Fund
also enjoys tax-exempt status in Canada and Israel.
