Dear Friend,

The Negev Foundation celebrates its 15th year providing critically needed financial resources for sustainable Negev development. The Negev Foundation has made a difference in the future growth and development of our homeland, Israel.

The Negev Foundation is the only organization exclusively devoted to Negev development.

This year, The Negev Foundation has been awarded its fifth consecutive 4-star rating by Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator highlights the fine work of efficient charities and provides donors with essential information needed to give them greater confidence in the charitable choices they make. Only 240 non-profits of the 6,000 American charities evaluated by Charity Navigator have achieved this honored distinction including The Negev Foundation. The Negev Foundation is the only Jewish/Israel focused non-profit in the State of Ohio to have received this distinguished award.

Enclosed is a letter that we received from Ken Berger, Charity Navigator’s President and Chief Executive Officer, notifying us of our rating We strongly urge you to visit their website for more information about The Negev Foundation’s fiscal operations.

The Negev Foundation continues to go from strength to strength; yet, our work in building a homeland for future generations can only be accomplished with your continued and generous help. We have enjoyed providing you with the many Negev products these past several years. This year we sincerely hope that you continue to support our historic work in Israel, increasing your gift with additional assurance that the monies you are contributing to The Negev Foundation are used for their intended purpose.

Thank you in advance for your continued support and generosity.
