A U.S.-based organization with members in Canada has launched a new program to support non-profit projects in Israel.

The Jewish Funders Network, with headquarters in New York City, has started what is describes as a matching grants initiative.

“We’ve been active in Israel for many years, but this is the first time we have taken such an active role in trying to stimulate philanthropy there,” the group’s Canadian-born president, Mark Charendoff, said in an interview last week."
