The Ben-Gurion Annual Fund allocates funds where they are needed most. Donations support education, research, innovation, entrepreneurship training, and more at BGU in the U.S. and Israel, making an impact on the students, faculty, and the community.

Ben-Gurion University is the beating heart of the Negev — where education, research, and community are leading the Way Forward. The October 7th Hamas terror attacks directly and disproportionately impacted the BGU community and the Negev, and now BGU is vital to rebuilding and recovery efforts. With your help, we can fortify BGU’s status as the anchor institution of the Negev — and as a powerful engine for growth and innovation.

Join us in raising $1 billion over 10 years to support the future of Ben-Gurion University, with a focus on six priority areas:
  • The future of the Negev and Israel
  • Impactful technologies for the future
  • Climate change, sustainability, and the environment
  • Value-driven society
  • Education and opportunities
  • Global health

A4BGU is building a movement of Americans committed to improving the world through a new 21st-century unifying vision for Israel. Tasked with securing a majority of the $1 billion goal, A4BGU is taking a leading role in the campaign and galvanizing American supporters into action.


The campaign runs from October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2030.
