Common Questions

  • How do you choose the families?

    We accept families that were referred by the official social services and then we meet them face to face before qualifying them for assistance.

  • How do you determine the monthly amount a family is eligible to receive on your site?

    Currently all families eligible to receive up to a monthly fixed amount of Shekels equal to $200.

  • Why only families in Israel and not worldwide?

    Israel is only the beginning, more countries will follow.

  • How do you know what the families are doing with the money?

    Families receive 100% of your monthly support in the form of food stamps, freeing their current income for other urgent needs.

  • Are you in contact with families regularly?

    Yes. We maintain contact with the social services and the families themselves on a regular basis.

  • Can I be in touch with the families I support (adopt)?

    Currently no, but we are working on it so stay tuned.

  • How can you give 100% of contributions to needy families? How do you sustain your operational costs?

    All operational costs are supported directly by donations from foundations and individual supporters. 100% of your money goes directly to families in need, all other costs and fees are on us.

  • Will my donation be tax-deductible?

    US donations will receive a tax deductible receipt from American Support for Israel, Inc., a 501(c)(3) US public charity that supports charitable organizations in Israel.

  • Why does it say “America Gives” on my receipt and not “ClearGiving”?

    Since your donations go to families in Israel, we partner with America Gives, an American non-profit organization, to ensure your donation is tax deductible in the US. America Gives processes the payment, transfers it to ClearGiving, and then issues you a tax receipt for the full amount of your donation.

  • How can you give 100% of donations to the families? What about the cost of operations?

    We pay for all operational costs through the generous donations of foundations and individuals, allowing 100% of your donations to go directly to families in need.
