Overseas Supplemental Giving/ Israel Education Fund
update

Forty-seven years strong, Israel Education Fund has always been a story of a shared commitment to Israel transcending the generations. Leading by example for children and grandchildren, many of our donors proactively pave the way for the involvement of successive generations in their family.

This issue features one such story. Every year, Arthur Anderman, the lead trustee of The Gladys and Irving Coopersmith Charitable Trust, and his wife Carole, include family members on their trip to visit IEF projects in Israel. A highlight this year was celebrating the bar mitzvah of Anderman's 13-year-old grandson with residents at a Coopersmith-funded senior center. There are many ways to involve successive generations in your philanthropy.

The late Alex Grass, z"l, entrusted his legacy of building a strong Israel to his children, naming them as trustees of his foundation. In this issue, we feature an exciting new capital project of The Alexander Grass Foundation that reflects Alex’s longstanding commitment to the arts and to actively contributing to the culture of local communities.

Whatever your interest, our Overseas Supplemental Giving/IEF team is committed to aligning your philanthropic objectives with urgently needed projects and programs that can shape Israel's—and your family's—future.
