United Israel Appeal

Jewish Federations rely on the JFNA’s United Israel Appeal (UIA) to provide fiduciary oversight and grant management for philanthropic funds expended in Israel.


In addition, funds raised by U.S. Jewish Federation annual campaigns, which are provided as collective support for the Jewish Agency, are allocated by UIA.


The Jewish Agency is the operating agent of the United Israel Appeal on behalf of the Federation system.


UIA also secures and monitors U.S. grant funds for the immigration and absorption of Jewish refugees and humanitarian migrants to Israel from countries of distress.


With the Jewish Agency as our partner, Jewish Federations fulfill their ongoing collective commitment to contribute to and participate in building the State of Israel through the UIA.
