United Israel Appeal

United Israel Appeal (UIA) is a link between the American Jewish community and the people of Israel.


As an independent legal entity, UIA is responsible for the allocation and oversight of funds raised by U.S. Jewish Federation campaigns expended in Israel. The Jewish Agency is the operating agent of the United Israel Appeal on behalf of the Federation system.


UIA also secures and monitors U.S. grant funds for the immigration and absorption of Jewish refugees and humanitarian migrants to Israel from countries of distress.


With the Jewish Agency as its partner, UIA helps American Jews fulfill their ongoing collective commitment to contribute to and participate in building the State of Israel.
