Let's Fight COVID-19 Together

Even while frenetic Tel Aviv was in lockdown, Tel Aviv University dropped everything to help with the Israeli and global fight against COVID-19.

Now we're asking you to drop everything and donate to our COVID-19 Drive.

Your support – which TAU will match dollar for dollar – will:

  • Fast-track prevention and cures.
  • Purchase equipment to expand public testing
  • Aid vulnerable students affected by the crisis

Not only will your generosity provide emergency assistance, but you can be part of the Next Big Coronavirus Idea to come out of TAU and Israel.

Our Mission

Support us

Who is building Israel’s future? YOU ARE…

by supporting the next generation of students at Tel Aviv University.

Every contribution to this Campaign will go towards full or partial scholarships for talented students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

It’s often said that Israel’s greatest natural resource is the brain-power of its people — but the skills needed for leadership don’t just happen. They are carefully shaped and nourished by a first-rate education.

That’s why TAU graduates and faculty can be found at the helm of Israel’s leading companies, in the top echelons of public service, and on the cutting edge of science and technology.

And why your contribution today will have such an important impact on tomorrow, helping to forge the leaders of the next generation.
