Jewish National Fund: Proud to present Team JNF

It started with a simple ask: ‘Would I like to go for a bike ride in Israel?’ Now, Jewish National Fund-USA and the The Israel Ride are both an integral part of my life.”
—David Eisenberg, Israel Ride Vice-Chair

Does money I donate to my Israel Ride count towards my personal JNF donation (for various purposes) and would it help reduce any JNF pledge I have made?

  • Money donated to your own Israel Ride (or to support any other rider) counts as a JNF donation, however, it is cannot be applied to any pledges.

Does money others donate to my Israel Ride count towards my personal JNF donation (for various purposes) and would it help reduce any JNF pledge I have made?

  • No. Riders get soft credited (credit for helping to raise those funds for Israel) for donations that others have made to their rides but this amount cannot be counted as your individual donation to JNF.

Does money I donate to other Team JNF riders’ count towards my personal JNF donation ( for various purposes) and would it help reduce any JNF pledge I have made?

  • Money you donate to other Team JNF riders’ counts as your JNF donation and is included in your annual giving, but this donation cannot be applied to pledges made to JNF.

Can I donate to JNF and apply it to my or another Rider’s Israel Ride fundraising?

  • No. Please donate through the Israel Ride website, and if you donate towards a JNF-affiliated rider (for example, someone on a JNF team) we will reroute your contribution through JNF.
