Following the announcement by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding the appropriation of KKL revenues by the Israeli Government, JNF Australia has declared it is not linked to KKL.

In a statement JNF says: “JNF Australia and KKL are linked together by history, emotion and mission. We share a common narrative that connects us to the 5th Zionist Congress and the establishment of the Jewish National Fund in 1901. Yet, we are a separate, independent entity.

JNF Australia and KKL work together in cooperation to enhance and further our mutual purposes and objectives. Each of us are legally and operationally separate, with our own separate Board of Directors, employees, and donors. No member of the Board of JNF Australia serves on the Board of KKL, and vice versa.  Our donors select and designate where their contributions go and the projects and programs to support, which are actively monitored by JNF Australia.

KKL is one of many partners that JNF Australia works with all over Israel, including other not for profits and municipalities, in order to source and implement vital projects. The funds raised by JNF Australia go directly towards these projects, with not one dollar used to fund KKL. In fact on many occasions KKL have added 25% to the funds we have directed to the projects. Recent moves by the Government of Israel to appropriate some of KKL’s revenues will therefore have no impact on JNF Australia or its donors.”
