BECOME A SUPPORTER OF BIRTHRIGHT ISRAEL EXCEL
SUPPORT OUR MISSION

MAKE AN IMPACT

It costs thousands of dollars for just one Excel Fellow to benefit from the lifelong fellowship that begins with a summer business internship in Israel and continues with professional development after Excel Fellows return home. With your help, we can train the next generation of Jewish business leaders to support the Jewish people in the 21st century.
Your support helps these extraordinary students from the world’s top universities bring the Excel experience in Israel back to their home communities.
