Who decides which projects are funded?

The grantmaking decisions are made by a group of alumni from North American and Israel called the AVF Grantmaking Team. Many of these alumni are members of the North American Alumni Advisory Board (AAB) and the Israeli Vaad (board). Each year there is an open call for other alumni to join the AVF Grantmaking Team. 

If you would like to join the AVF Grantmaking Team, email Aaron Steinberg (aaron@byfi.org). If you are interested in joining the AAB, contact the AAB President, Ryder Kessler (ryder@byfi.org).
