About Jewish National Fund of Canada:
The Jewish National Fund of Canada (JNFC) was established in 1901 with the aim to raise funds that are used for charitable purposes in Israel. JNFC is committed to reclaiming Jewish homeland and to making Israel beautiful, strong and peaceful.
The charity spent its first 50 years purchasing land and the next 54 years developing the land by planting trees, building reservoirs, developing infrastructure for housing, and helping immigrants settle in Israel. Currently, JNFC conducts its projects mainly in the following areas: Forestry and Environment, Water Preservation, Security, Community Development, Research & Development, Tourism & Recreation and Education.
JNFC grants money to Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael - Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF). Since inception, KKL-JNF has redeemed over 700,000 acres of land for developing communities, and over 250,000 acres for farming. KKL-JNF has helped build over 220 reservoirs and dams that contribute 300 million cubic meters to Israel’s water storage capacity. The fund has also helped build 7,000 kilometers worth of security and agricultural roads to outlying and border communities. KKL-JNF is responsible for over 375,000 acres of forests and woodlands in Israel. This fund is partner to research focused on forestry, watershed management, carbon sequestration, alternative energy sources, animal and plant re-introduction, arid land management problems, and heritage & history.
In 2014, JNFC's administrative costs were 20% of revenues and its fundraising costs were 36% of donations. JNFC had $10.6m in funding reserves which cover annual program costs 2 times.
