TAFI-US is currently raising approximately $1.4Million annually from around 700 individual and 22 foundation donors. The North American Director will be expected to steward current donors while increasing donations and building new relationships across North America. The organization also receives a number of grants from American institutions, which are handled by the head office in Israel.


The North American Director is to increase income for the Abraham Fund to sustain and expand its activities in Israel. To that end, the Director will engage in public education and outreach, raise awareness and make a case for the organization’s cause. The focus of this role will be to enlarge the organization’s constituencies in order to expand fundraising. This work will take place across the US with an emphasis on New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, DC areas. The Director will be expected to travel frequently. The fundraising will focus primarily, but not exclusively, on Jewish individual donors and Jewish family foundations. Other constituencies include key partners such as Jewish Federations and other institutional donors.

The Director will be an integral part of the global Resource Development team reporting to the co-CEO’s who are located in Israel and will work in close consultation with staff in Israel including TAFI’s International

Director of Development. As Director of the North American Office, he or she will manage a Development associate and an Administration and Finance manager.

TAFI is seeking a dynamic self-starter with at least 5 to 10 years of direct experience in fundraising. It is most important for the Director to understand and have a sincere and genuine interest in the importance of the organization’s mission of promoting coexistence and equality among Israel’s Jewish and Arab-Palestinian citizens. A sophisticated and diplomatic personality who can work comfortably with people of influence and affluence is desired.
