Consider Song For Israel for your Year-End Giving
Because Song For Israel is a 501(c)3, you are assured that all donations to us are tax deductible! Choose how you might like to support us with your year-end gift:
Israel Bomb Shelter Project - We are saving lives in Israel by providing funding for bomb shelters along the Gaza border. Thanks to your gifts, two shelters have been placed already - one in Carmia (a school for abused young girls) and one in Kfar Saba (at an agricultural high school). Our current project is for a larger shelter, which costs more money, but will provide safety to a larger group in the Eshkol Region. We have collected 82% of the funding and would like to get that shelter to them before there are loss of lives!
Song For Israel General Fund - As with any business, there are costs most people don’t even think about. For example, we pay for our newsletter platform with Constant Contact, we pay fees for our mailbox in Yorba Linda, we pay for a partial salary with employment taxes, etc. We would love to expand our ministry with more video blogs and free events for everyone to attend, but we are funded solely with donations.
Please consider supporting Song For Israel with either project (or both) and receive a year-end tax record for your income taxes. To donate, please click here. We are so very grateful for your support that we might continue sharing the importance of support for Israel! Thank you and wishing you a happy 2019!
Here are things we were able to accomplish in 2018:
In 2018, Song For Israel was able to boldly help stand in the gap for Israel and the Jewish people. We are so grateful for the opportunity to continue to pursue our goal of proclaiming God's eternal plan through Israel. We could not do that without your support.
Celebrating God’s Provision For Israel
On January 2nd, Song For Israel was able to hand $16,000 over to Israel to purchase our second Bomb Shelter in Israel. This donation was for an agricultural high school in Kfar Silver, Israel. The shelter was delivered in early July 2018.
We began our third Bomb Shelter Campaign in Eshkol, Israel, where rockets have been hitting regularly for the past months. This shelter will be $23,000 and we have 82% collected so far.
Celebrating God’s Provision for Song For Israel
Also, in January, we were awarded another grant provided by the James L. Stamp Foundation and were able to purchase some equipment needed for some of our events. In December, we applied for a third grant and are awaiting approval.
We had several fundraiser events throughout the year: Miguel’s Jr., Panera Bread and Premier Jewelry.
Celebrating the People who Participated with Song For Israel
In February we offered a seminar on Eschcatology (end times) with Laura Walls as our guest speaker. This was great for those who were involved in our Daniel Bible Study.
On March 4th, we offered a conference called “Israel—The Prophetic Unfolding” and had three guest speakers.
In April, we partnered with Ben David Messianic Jewish Congregation for their Passover Seder at the Embassy Suites in Garden Grove
Our annual “Walk For Israel” was held on Israel’s Independence Day, May 14th, in Yorba Linda and we had the biggest group yet, carrying flags and signs in support of Israel.
Our Israel tour group visited Israel and Jordan, April 19-30 with a small group. A friend and I were able to stay a week after that in a Guest House in the Galilee and explore.
In May, both of our evening Bible Studies wrapped up the Book of Daniel and the Book of Galatians. In September, we began studying the Book of Romans and will continue through May 2019.
Deby Brown was a guest on a radio blog in July that lasted almost an hour. It was a dialog with the owner of the show. They talked about Israel—both spiritually and politically. The broadcast was shared on our Facebook and webpage.
We hosted our 4th Annual Feast of Tabernacles Celebration Dinner in Yorba Linda in October. Over 60 people attended and we had several teenagers serving with us. Chuck Ott and I shared about the holiday and Chuck and his wife sang several songs. At the end of the event, Carol led several dancers performing a Davidic dance.
Our Chanukah Party was a fun success on December 9th. We raised $700 with raffles at our party which helps us with our year-end expenses. There were six swing dancers dancing to a Chanukah swing song, we ate sufganiyot and played the dreidel game. Robb Schwartz raised the question: “Is Chanukah a Jewish holiday or a Christian holiday?” He shared about the significance of Chanukah and explained that Jesus celebrated this holiday, mentioned in the Book of John.
In addition to all of our events, Song For Israel has remained very active on Social media: website, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Twitter and more. Our website had a major facelift in 2018.
Looking forward to 2019
Our Board of Directors will be meeting in January to review 2018 and plan for 2019. We already have some plans in motion.
