Our Mission

Canadian Friends of Tel Aviv University

We provide direct funding support for the educational and research goals of Tel Aviv University, Israel’s largest and most comprehensive institution of higher learning, facilitated by enhanced public awareness of the University’s achievements and programming through the development of a strong local network of support.

Our mission is to increase local awareness of Tel Aviv University’s global excellence in academic and research programs, and reunite alumni and past attendees living in Canada.

Pursuing the Unknown

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.
