ASF Celebrating 7 Years of Growth
We were very happy to share a lovely day of music, food, memories, and of course, succulents with friends and supporters at our recent ASF Open House on Sunday, July 23rd, 2017. We had over 200 guests and raised nearly $20,000 for the Avi Schaefer Fund — exceeding our goal and doubling last year’s total. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who made donations in exchange for beautiful succulent plantings or otherwise, and to those who volunteered their time. Your support of our efforts means so much to us and we are truly grateful. We couldn’t do it without you and others who believe in our mission.
As a family fund, we strive to promote the ideals and dreams that inspired Avi throughout his life. ASF is dedicated to changing the climate of the discussion surrounding Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; to improving interfaith relationships; and to empowering young people to be change agents — on college campuses across North America, and in the community at large. Through our programs and grants, we continue to develop opportunities to further Avi’s values of empathy, mutual respect, and active listening.
