• Initiatives

      • The continued support of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is accomplished through a myriad of innovative initiatives.

        More than simply a fundraising organization, CFHU seeks to bring value to its donors in exciting and relevant ways that not only generate donations, but that also enrich the lives of students, faculty, and visitors to the university. These initiatives are constantly evolving through the collective input of our donors and the university itself.
