Can I give my gift to a specific person?
Since our projects are carried out by partners who identify those in greatest need at the time funding is received, it is not possible to set aside a gift for a particular person. Your gifts will benefit those people most in need.
Does The Fellowship accept donations of clothing or household goods?
Unfortunately, we are not able to accept donations of this type. The cost of shipping goods to our project areas is prohibitive. As an alternative, consider holding a garage or yard sale and donating the proceeds to The Fellowship, or donating the items to a local shelter or charitable resale shop.
Is it true that Freedom Flights are provided at no cost to Jews wishing to immigrate to Israel?
The airlines contracted by the Israeli government to provide these flights are commercial businesses that are paid for their services by the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the Israeli government. JAFI, in turn, depends on organizations like The Fellowship to cover the cost of these flights, as well as other costs included in the aliyah (immigration) and klitah (resettlement) process. These include the cost of obtaining passports and travel documents, language and job training at absorption centers in Israel, and housing subsidies.
How much of my gift goes to administrative costs?
Donations designated for a specific project (such as On Wings of Eagles) fund only that project and educational and fundraising activities directly associated with that project. Administrative costs are paid for with contributions that are not designated for projects. In the previous year, 80 cents of every dollar we raised went directly to our programs.
