180 needy local families literally depend on Lema'an Achai. Without your financial support, all of these families would suffer the severe effects of poverty and crisis. Our programs of "Smart Chesed" aim to bring people through then out of crisis.
We rely on you and other generous individuals like yourself who donate all or some of their charity money to Lema'an Achai. Unfortunately, as the Israeli economy worsens, more and more families cannot make ends meet and turn to Lema'an Achai for help.
Lema'an Achai fulfills all the halachik requirements for ma'aser kesafim (traditional 10% of income donated to charity). So this year, designate Lema'an Achai as your designated charity thereby helping your neighbors, friends, and the people of the State of Israel to live with dignity and pride. We provide food for today and hope for tomorrow.
Lema'an Achai passed the stringent requirements of the Israeli government and in addition to its Amuta (non-profit organization) status, it has been approved under Israel Finance Ministry regulation Section 46. This enables donors to obtain income tax refunds on all their donations.
Donors from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom can also obtain tax refunds on their donations from their specific income tax authorities (click here for details).
