This year has been full of uncertainty and challenges, but with the support of our generous members, we were able to help many families in need and donate to various causes!
This year Birzeit Society has fundraised and distributed nearly $60,000 and participated in helping over 400 families in Birzeit, awarded scholarships, donated to the Medical Mission, and provided legal funding to oppose the building of the asphalt plant in Birzeit.
As many Birzeitis continue to undergo hardship, we will continue our efforts to assist our community and organizations in Birzeit and we need your help!
Birzeit Society Fundraiser Projects
Each year, Birzeit Society awards 20 scholarships to collegiate level students from Birzeit. For the 2021/2022 school year, our goal is to increase the number of scholarships awarded. Funds raised will help more students with their educational careers.
This year Birzeit Society has assisted in helping over 400 families with food packages, medical needs, and emergency funds. To continue these efforts, funds donated go directly to Birzeiti families and individuals who are in need.
COVID-19 Relief Efforts
