Donate to Tel Aviv University's Emergency Fund

This Fund will be used to meet the following urgent needs:

  • Immediate post-trauma care: Tel Aviv University's National Center for Traumatic Stress and Resilience in cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces is setting up an emergency clinic to treat and prevent PTSD among soldiers and civilians from all over the country. Each gift of $1,800 will cover a 16-session course of therapy — and bring new hope — for someone suffering
  • Psychological services: The University's Psychological Services unit through student services is being inundated with requests from young people suffering from panic, anxiety, and depression. Additional therapists and more subsidized counseling are needed to help students cope and complete their studies. The costs of therapy vary, but an average subsidized 12-session course of counseling costs approximately $1000 per student
  • Relocating families from the south and north and providing free temporary housing in student dorms. A number of families have already moved in and others are on their way. The monthly cost per family is $1,800
  • Financial aid for combat soldiers: The goal is to provide financial support to every soldier called to reserve duty to protect Israel

This donation form accepts both credit and debit card donations.
