In the U.S. and Canada, 50% of the young leadership of all the organizations like AIPAC and Hillel are Birthright alumni.
I have often spoken about the importance of intentionality in philanthropy: that it has to stir the soul. This is true whether you are feeding the homeless, mentoring a child or working on climate change.
Over 90% of participants are satisfied with the Birthright experience.
Philanthropy and social change work are at their best when they are driven by your values and connected to what you care about most.
Philanthropy is in the DNA of my family.
