News & Events

Ways to Give

BFBIU welcomes contributions at all levels from individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations.


Bar Ilan’s work with disadvantaged communities in the Galilee, interfaith programmes with Jewish and Arab students and legal aid clinics for vulnerable women are just some examples of how Bar-Ilan is having real, transformative change in areas critical to Israels strength and security.


Support disadvantaged undergraduate students and outstanding postgraduate students. Your support will provide deserving students with  financial aid for books, living expenses and tuition fees.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

UK Campaign for The Jonathan Sacks Institute


In 2024 Bar-Ilan will open The Jonathan Sacks Institute. Reaching over 400 students a year, this groundbreaking Institute will bring together students, researchers and academics from different faiths, backgrounds and countries to learn from, and be inspired by, the remarkable work of Rabbi Sacks zt”l.


Deciding to leave a legacy is a sensitive and personal decision and we recognise that each person’s wishes and circumstances are unique. You may have a particular area of research or education you want to support or you may wish to direct your gift according to Bar-Ilan’s most pressing priorities.
