Giving Tuesday Israel Raises Over 1m. NIS
In the first Giving Tuesday Israel (31 December), 3,364 donations were made to 283 nonprofit organizations, totaling 1,050,582 NIS. This according to IsraelGives.org, the Israeli-based platform that facilitated the local version of this international initiative.
68% of the donors made first-time gifts through IsraelGives; 82% per cent of the donations were made by Israelis.
In releasing the results, IsraelGives CEO Yonatan Ben-Dor told eJP, “This finding is particularly interesting as in previous years the majority of donations made to Israeli nonprofits on 31/12 were from donors abroad. As a result of this campaign we have created a revolutionary change in end-of-year giving culture in Israel.”
