Notice that we use the word "recommend" when talking about the Israeli charity that you're donating towards. That's because the IRS does not permit donors to instruct how an American charity on how it should its funds - you can only "recommend" how your donation should be used. When you donate, the board of our national partner evaluates your recommendation, reviewing to ensure that the organization that you are donating towards has been approved to work with us, and meets our and the IRS' legal standards. Every organization featured on the IsraelGives website have been reviewed and pre-approved by America Gives; However, if, for whatever reason, we cannot respect the recommendation of which organization you'd like the funds to go towards, we will promptly return you the donation (we will never transfer it to a different organization).
