Financial Aid and Resources for Fundraising

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to join an Eyewitness Palestine delegation and will work with you to make your trip possible. We provide partial scholarships to one-in-four delegates and grant an average of $18,000 to delegates each year.

Most Eyewitness Palestine delegates cover the majority of their costs, so our Fundraising Packet provides resources and ideas for raising the funds needed. Hundreds of delegates have taken advantage of our support to make their journey possible!
