The American Israel Education Foundation – AIEF

October 23, 2012 -    

AIEF makes annual grants to AIPAC that are consistent with the Foundation’s status as a charitable and educational 501 (c)(3) organization, providing grants to support select educational programs including Middle East research, educational materials and conferences, and leadership programs for university students. In addition to making grants for AIPAC programs, the Foundation funds educational seminars to Israel for members of Congress and other political influentials. These AIEF-sponsored trips help educate political leaders and influentials about the importance of the U.S. – Israel relationship through firsthand experiences in Israel, briefings by experts on Middle East affairs, and meetings with Israeli political elite.

AIEF Campus Allies Mission to Israel The MFF is the sole sponsor (in perpetuity) of The American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF) Campus Allies Mission to Israel. The annual commitment of $200,000, allows about 40 college activists, who are significantly involved in the American political process, but who have not previously traveled, visited, and toured that State of Israel. The AIEF Campus Allies Mission is uniquely designed for student leaders from historically African-American colleges, Christian universities, and Hispanic colleges. These campus activists are usually not eligible for the ‘Birthright Israel’ program.

These students have come from Alabama, Utah, Georgia, Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado, Florida, and Illinois.
