Birthright Israel Foundation has officially launched the Birthright Israel Legacy Society to ensure young Jewish adults from around the world will be able to fulfill their birthright and explore their ancestral homeland for generations to come.

Birthright Israel is founded on three values that are central in the Jewish world: Unity, Community, and Mutual Responsibility. The educational experience is a gift from the Jewish people to its younger members, given by nearly 40,000 annual donors who all want to ensure a vibrant future for the Jewish people and the State of Israel.

In merely 22 years, Birthright Israel has transformed the lives of over 800,000 Jewish young adults from 68 countries. Study after study from Brandeis University shows the incredible return when investing in Birthright Israel. Alumni come home more connected to their Jewish identities, engaged in their communities, and tied to the land and people of Israel than before their Birthright Israel trip. It is because of you and your generosity that this trip is possible.

As you think about future generations of Jews, even those beyond your lifetime, you may be wondering what you too can do to contribute to “something that will go on.” Creating your legacy through gift planning with the Birthright Israel Foundation will generate the financial resources necessary to ensure the long-term goals of the Birthright Israel program and continue the transformative power of this incredible 10-day journey for generations to come. Our Planned Giving Program provides quick, easy, long-term ways to be charitable. It enables you to sustain your family, secure the future of the Jewish people, and turn your gift to Birthright Israel Foundation into a lasting legacy.

The impact of one Birthright Israel trip is beyond the experience of one participant. Creating a bequest to Birthright Israel Foundation in your estate plans is an investment in the Jewish Future. Gift Planning offers you the opportunity to use financial, estate, investment, and philanthropic options to help meet your current philanthropic goals and extend your generosity well into the future.

We hope you will join Los Angeles supporters and become a member of our Birthright Israel Legacy Society, joining other individuals who have prioritized ensuring the sustainability of the Birthright Israel Program for the future. The Foundation offers several planned giving opportunities through a variety of financial vehicles—from direct bequests and retirement account distributions to specialized endowment funds and the Birthright Israel Charitable Gift Annuity.

What Our Supporters Say

“The successful survival of the Jewish homeland, Israel, is one of the most important issues facing Jews today and is one of the most important to us. That is why Birthright is such a major part of our Estate plan. Birthright brings young people to Israel and shows them their heritage. If not Birthright, then who?.”

Los Angeles Leadership Council Member & Birthright Israel Legacy Society Member

“Our charitable giving is focused on Jewish continuity. No organization in our view does as much to ensure that than Birthright Israel. The majority of Jews in the world outside of Israel are in the US and intermarriage and lack of engagement is a big issue. Birthright is highly successful in addressing this.”
