New Israel Fund Australia Foundation aims to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of civil and human rights, social and economic justice, democracy, diversity, reconciliation and peace.

NIF Australia is a home of progressive engagement with Israel that seeks to create active and deep connections between Australian Jews, their communities and Israel.

We also raise funds to empower Israeli civil society through the New Israel Fund. Founded in 1979, NIF is a partnership between Israelis and the Diaspora, and is the leading organisation committed to equality and democracy for all Israelis.

Last year, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni appointed Ruth Gavison, Israeli law professor and former president of NIF’s flagship grantee the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), to assist her in preparing a constitutional arrangement reflecting Israel’s character as a “Jewish and democratic” state.
