August 5, 2022
JERUSALEM — The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship), the leading nonprofit building bridges between Christians and Jews and blessing Israel and the Jewish people around the world with humanitarian aid, was recently awarded the America’s Best Charities Seal of Excellence. The Seal of Excellence is given to charities that meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness.
“We’re deeply grateful to receive this recognition,” said Yael Eckstein, The Fellowship’s president and CEO. “Being good stewards of our supporters’ funds has always been of utmost importance to us. This seal offers further proof that our current and future supporters can give to us with confidence, and rest assured that their funds are going to fulfill The Fellowship’s mission that is so close to their hearts: to alleviate poverty, provide security, and facilitate aliyah (immigration to Israel) for Jews in need around the world.”
To qualify for the Seal, charities must provide evidence of their program activities and demonstrate the benefit of their services. They must submit for review their most recent tax returns with all schedules. Charities with annual revenues above $250,000 must also submit audited financial statements produced by an independent certified public accountant, including an auditor’s opinion letter stating the charity meets the generally accepted accounting standards in the U.S.
