The Sapphire Society is the women's major gift division of JNF. Sapphires share a special bond through their commitment to Zionism, and are part of an exclusive group of leaders helping to strengthen the homeland - one community, one project, one family at a time. The Sapphire Society has raised over $20 million in ten years for a wide variety of projects in Israel. Members, through their annual $5,000 contribution, are entitled to wear the coveted Sapphire Society Pin.
