Jewish National Fund’s “Plant Your Way to Israel”
Youth through age 18 can raise money for a trip to Israel by asking family and friends to plant trees with JNF. Half of the proceeds of each donation ($36 minimum) will go towards planting a tree in Israel and the other half goes into a student account which can be redeemed for any trip to Israel. Funds may be redeemed when a total of 10 sales have been made, and $180 is accrued towards the student trip.
Funds accumulated through “Plant Your Way to Israel” can be used towards a USY Israel Pilgrimage trip.
