The New Israel Fund Australia Foundation is a leading organisation committed to social justice, human rights and democracy in Israel. We work with Israelis experiencing poverty, discrimination and injustice to create a more inclusive, tolerant and equal society.

Based on the vision of the country’s founders, we work towards an Israel that is “based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel… [and] complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex.”

NIF Australia works to defend human rights and democratic infrastructure, relieve poverty and economic inequality, advance the status of women, address inequality in the Arab-Israeli community, promote the rights of refugees and people seeking asylum, and protect the rights of vulnerable communities.
