Mission Statement

As the caretaker of the land of Israel on behalf of its owners--Jewish people everywhere, JNF will be there to improve the quality of life for all Israelis through the next century and beyond.

Description

Since its founding in 1901, Jewish National Fund has been a vital part of Zionist history, achieving its goal of purchasing the land that would become the State of Israel, helping to develop that land into a thriving nation, and protecting Israel's environment.

Over the past century, JNF has planted over 240 million trees, built over 180 dams and reservoirs, developed over 250,000 acres of land, created more than 1,000 parks throughout Israel and educated students around the world about Israel and the environment. Through the support of donors around the world, JNF was able to ensure that Israel was the only nation in the world to end the 20th century with more trees than it had at the beginning . In addition, over the past decade, JNF has increased its water resources to furnish water to more than 1.2 million Israelis.
