Online donations to Israel increase

Online donations to Israeli charities increased by some 14% this past year, according to a report released by Israel Gives, the leading website for charitable giving in the country. "Israeli nonprofit organizations, which traditionally relied on mega-donations from foundations and Jewish Federations, are now increasingly realizing the potential for fundraising from the general public," Yonatan Ben-Dor, co-founder and CEO of Israel Gives told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.
