Our Mission

Australian Friends of Tel Aviv University

The Australian Friends of Tel Aviv University (Vic) Inc is a group committed to the nurturing of higher education, as well as the development of some of Israel’s best minds.  For four decades we have enthusiastically pursued the advancement of TAU in the world by raising money, awareness and influence. We serve as a dynamic bridge between two inspired communities — Australian and Israeli.

With the national office headquartered in Melbourne, and offices in Sydney and Perth, the Australian Friends of Tel Aviv University is pleased to support Tel Aviv University’s vital role in changing lives that change the world.

Support us!

Who is building Israel’s future? YOU ARE…

by supporting the next generation of students at Tel Aviv University!

Every contribution to this Campaign will go towards full or partial scholarships for talented students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

It’s often said that Israel’s greatest natural resource is the brain-power of its people — but the skills needed for leadership don’t just happen. They are carefully shaped and nourished by a first-rate education.

That’s why TAU graduates and faculty can be found at the helm of Israel’s leading companies, in the top echelons of public service, and on the cutting edge of science and technology.

And why your contribution today will have such an important impact on tomorrow, helping to forge the leaders of the next generation.
