The Founded in 2007, the Israeli-American Council (IAC) works to build an engaged and united Israel-American community that strengthens the Israeli and Jewish identity of the next generations, the American Jewish community, and the bond between the people of the United States and the State of Israel.

Grant Purpose: 

The IAC Care program provides an online database that engages 10,000 LA Jewish and Israeli-Americans in volunteerism and matches them with Jewish as well as non-Jewish community organizations in need of support.  Volunteers commit to a minimum of 4 volunteer hours and receive rewards and incentives for their participation. 

The Foundation’s Cutting Edge Grant will allow I.A.Care to develop the organizational structure and marketing efforts to foster and sustain a copious Jewish and Israeli-American volunteer incentive program. The grant will assist in our mission of bridging the communities through a shared sense of communal responsibility.
