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.
