MISSION & STRUCTURE:
The America-Israel Economic Forum brings together diverse groups to provide the business community as well as the general public with educational programs about the Israel’s economy and the benefits of conducting business in and with Israel and other foreign countries. AIEF educates about Israel and its role in the world, its importance to the development of technology, the promotion of democracy and, of course, the hope of stabilization in the Middle East.
AIEF cooperates in its programming, where applicable, with many organizations in Israel and the U.S. including the America-Israel Chamber of Commerce Chicago, the Government of Israel Economic Mission to the Midwest, and with regional economic development agencies in Western Illinois, Eastern Iowa, and Southern Wisconsin.
The AIEF is not a membership organization. We are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization, which allows supporters to make tax-deductible contributions. The AIEF does not endorse or promote any particular business entity or act as a facilitator on a one-to-one basis, dealing with specific companies with their distinctive problems.
