May Tzedakah Box Supports Impact
Our May Tzedakah Box donations support Impact, a program of the Friends of the IDF, which grants college scholarships to IDF combat soldiers who have completed their military service and wish to begin their studies, but cannot afford the expense of higher education. The program was created to help, support and show appreciation to the young men and women who risked their lives during military service and devoted themselves to protecting the state of Israel. The Impact scholarship gives soldiers from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds an extraordinary opportunity for a future that otherwise would be beyond their reach. The grant covers the cost of tuition and other expenses and is given for the full duration of B.A. studies (up to four years).
In the spirit of “giving back,” all Impact scholarship recipients contribute 130 hours of volunteer work per year to their local communities, working with Holocaust survivors, cancer patients, battered women and at-risk youth. Your generous donations allow these deserving young people to realize their dreams of a higher education -- they are a true investment in the next generation of Israel’s leaders. Learn more on their website.
