About Israel Magen Fund
Israel Magen Fund, founded by veteran resource development and crisis management personnel, prides itself on full transparency and communication with its donors and a swift and timely response to funding medical and military projects in Israel.

With their combined experience of 20 years with medical and military projects, Israel Magen Fund co-founders David Rose and Mati Goldstein, working in close consultation with US-based philanthropist Edward Mermelstein, identified genuine concern among donors relating to how funds reach their target destination. Typical issues included, among others:
• “Does the organization really need these items/services”?
• “Have they been delivered to the people that really need them?”
• “Did they receive the items/services in promptly?”
• “Is the donation being managed on an on-going basis?”
• “Is there any follow-up report on how the monies were used?”

The Israel Magen Fund was founded to answer these concerns, bringing together the experience and expertise in a three-way partnership between donors, resource development and in-the-field operations. The fund, which is not allied to any single organization, operates with full transparency to both donor and recipient.

The Israel Magen Fund
• Selects, vets and approves the medical and/or military projects that require funding
• Purchases the selected products/services directly,
• Supplies them directly to the organization in need
• Monitors and manages their ongoing use
• Updates donors on a regular basis.

This new and transparent way of working translates into the best use and management of donor dollars, with recipient projects selected based on a real need that can be swiftly and efficiently answered.

Current projects include, among others:

• Providing life-saving defibrillators and firefighting Ranger UTVs for emergency security personnel in the Binyamin region
• Providing emergency medical equipment to the volunteer first responders of the Beit Shemesh Hatzalah Team (Tzevet Hatzalah)
• Providing food, supplies and shelter for Jewish refugees and young orphans from Ukraine
• Providing weekly food baskets to needy families and individuals in Sderot and its environs through the Sderot Hessed Center
