Middle East Peace

Our Call to Action

The Funding Circle is committed to supporting a just, peaceful and enduring transformation of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the life diminishing consequences of decades of divisive narratives, mutual mistrust, anger, fear, violence, and the encroaching presence of Israeli settlers and military. The Funding Circle will support efforts among and between Israelis and Palestinians to create peace, long range stability, reconciliation between their respective communities, strengthening democracy and community building through peaceful civic engagement, and influencing a respectful, compassionate public narrative advocating for full civil rights, dignity and security for all. Our commitment is to support Palestinians and Israelis working together, creating conditions conducive to peace.

Our Mission

We are committed to supporting an ecosystem of peaceful, visionary, innovative Palestinian and Israeli activists advancing nonviolent transformation of the conflict and conditions in Palestine and Israel into an enduring peace, with full civil rights, dignity and security for all. 

2019 Grantmaking Cycle

Each year, Threshold Funding Circles will have a single, 6-month grantmaking cycle from February to August.  

Guidelines

In broad strokes, we are committed to supporting an ecosystem of peaceful, visionary, innovative Palestinian and Israeli activists advancing nonviolent transformation of the conflict and conditions in Palestine and Israel into an enduring peace, with full civil rights, equal opportunities, dignity and security for all. We are interested in supporting groups with high impact and leverage potential, including in the near-term. We will contribute to the creation of relationship and community between Palestinians and Israelis, supporting those already engaged in moving beyond divisive narratives, working together toward common goals, and nurturing a movement facilitating the conditions in which peace can occur. 

We fund organizations in the US and internationally. We primarily fund organizations with 501(c)3 statuses, and may consider organizations with 501(c)4 statuses.
