Jewish National Fund (JNF) is a nonprofit dedicated to the land and people of Israel. Created in 1901 as a dream and vision to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere, Jews the world over collected coins in iconic JNF Blue Boxes, purchasing land and planting trees until ultimately, their dream of a Jewish homeland was a reality. Today, JNF continues to give all generations a unique voice in building and ensuring the prosperity of the land of Israel through their generosity and partnership with the people of Israel.
To accomplish this work, JNF seeks to recruit an experienced Fundraiser for the Northern California and the Pacific Northwest to be based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
