British Friends of the Hebrew University

The British Friends have been supporting the Hebrew University since 1926 through various linked charities. The British Friends of the Hebrew University was incorporated on 22 August 2007 and is governed by its memorandum and articles of association, as amended by special resolution(s) dated 9 May 2013.

We also support student and academic collaboration, helping where possible with scholarships and bursaries and more broadly promote the University’s achievements.

Through the philanthropic leadership of the British Friends throughout the UK, the Hebrew University has received immense support in recruiting and retaining outstanding faculty, in new building, in teaching and research facilities and in providing scholarships and fellowships and advance basic and applied research in a vast array of disciplines.

BFHU’s programmes, events and missions to Israel promote greater appreciation of the Hebrew University’s breadth and scope of achievements and the University’s pivotal role in educating leaders for the State of Israel. By nurturing Israel’s greatest natural resource – the intellectual strength of the nation’s people – BFHU helps the Hebrew University to improve human health, lead the way with agricultural innovation, spearhead the latest breakthroughs in brain sciences and illuminate the world through the humanities.
