Negev Society


Named in honor of JNF’s transformative efforts in the Negev Desert, the Negev Society is reserved for a select group of individuals and couples who have demonstrated an enduring commitment to Israel and JNF.  In addition to the satisfaction of partnering with the land and people of Israel, your annual contribution of $25,000 or more allows you to enjoy privileges reserved for JNF’s most special donors and enables JNF to keep our promise to Israel—a promise we made more than a century ago.  

As a member of the Negev Society you are entitled to exclusive information and services from JNF.  Throughout the year, you’ll receive copies of JNF’s B’Yachad newsletter, informative letters from me, and regular e-mail communications.

Plus, your membership entitles you to elite services and access to members-only events, including:

  • An Exclusive VIP Mission for Negev Society Members
    Members are invited to participate in a special subsidized VIP mission to Israel with JNF’s CEO Russell Robinson. The first VIP mission will take place in January 2013.
  • Prominent Name Recognition in Be’er Sheva
    In addition to name recognition at American Independence Park which is afforded to all major donors, Negev Society members will also be honored at the J. Lew Schepps Gateway to the Negev Recognition Plaza in Be’er Sheva.
  • High Level briefings with Israel dignitaries
    As caretaker of the land of Israel for over 100 years, JNF has unique access to Israel’s political and business leaders.  Your membership in JNF’s Negev Society gives you the opportunity to meet with these influential people both in the U.S. and Israel.
  • Invitations to Exclusive JNF events for major gift donors
    Join JNF for periodic gatherings with your fellow society members.  From exclusive receptions to private cocktail parties, lectures and special programs, Jewish National Fund strives to honor your continued support.
  • Insider Briefing E-Mails
    To keep you informed of current issues in Israel, you will receive periodic e-mails from JNF’s President and CEO on important geo-political or socio-economic developments.
  • VIP status when traveling to Israel
    You will receive complimentary access to JNF Travel & Tours.  Whether you are taking part in our special Negev Society Mission, another JNF mission, or traveling with family and friends, JNF can help make your trip an unforgettable experience.  Simply call JNF Travel & Tours at 877-JNF-TOUR or visit; you can also call Hannah Schwartz, National Missions Director, at (212) 879-9305, ext. 254, or e-mail
  • Free Trees in your EZ Tree Account
    In recognition of your gift we will provide your EZ Tree Account with ten free trees to be used for any occasion.  If you don’t currently have an account we will open one on your behalf.  Simply call our toll free donor fulfillment center at 800-542-8733 (Tree).
