Dedication Opportunities

Your generous gift to the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel will help insure that Israel stays beautiful and green forever, that our open spaces and natural habitats – our woodlands, scrublands, deserts; our hills and valleys and our beaches and seas --  are full of amazing animals and plants, and accessible and clean, for all to enjoy.  What could be more important?memorial plaque at the Nili and David Jerusalem Bird Observatory

Whether you are considering your own legacy, or dedicating a gift to Israeli nature in honor of a loved one, SPNI offers you a place in Israeli nature. We have an array of dedication opportunities to honor your gift in some of Israel’s most beautiful and iconic spots --  in our historic field schools, along the Israel National Trail (one of the 10 “epic trails” of the world, according to National Geographic) and in our unique community birding research centers.  Throughout the diverse regions of Israel, we can emplace a permanent plaque or bench. We're also happy to see if we can make your dreams a reality.girl holding migrating bird

Hermon, in the Golan Heights, at Mt. Meron near Safed, at Achziv on the Mediterranean Coast, or near Kfar Tavor in the lower Galilee.

In the south, at our Field Schools in Ein Gedi on the Dead Sea, Mitzpe Ramon, the Ashkelon coast, the Arava and Eilat, and at our Eilat Birding Center, and for those who love hiking, at the southern terminus of the Israel National Trail.

We would be happy to help you consider your legacy or gift in honor of a loved one, and discuss these options and more. Please contact Jay Shofet, Director of Development and Partnerships at to arrange a time to discuss this in greater detail.
