The approximately 37,000 registered nonprofit organizations in Israel raised NIS 23 billion in 2022, a decrease of about 5% compared to 2021.

NIS 13b. were raised in fundraising from Israel and NIS 10b. in fundraising from abroad, according to a market test conducted by Atlas Ltd., the largest platform in Israel in the field of philanthropic reports for nonprofit organizations.

The forecast is that 2023 will be a difficult year for raising donations to nonprofit organizations. It is predicted to be more difficult than during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic due to the difficult situation in the business sector in the last year, the waves of layoffs in hi-tech and technology companies and the decline in the stock market.
