USA Study Tours

Silicon Valley has transformed the way that we shop, connect with others and search information, and it is now disrupting another sector – philanthropy. Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime study tour of Silicon Valley and the Bay Area as we delve into the epicentre of tech, Jewish innovation and high impact philanthropy in a region known for taking big bets on big ideas.

Join us in Silicon Valley and the Bay area for the opportunity to:

  • Meet high impact social investors

About USA Study Tours

The AJF US Study Tours offer a unique and inspiring journey exploring the endless possibilities and programs showcasing innovation in Jewish Life. The aim of these road trips is to build long lasting and sustainable relationships with leaders, funders and programs in the US that we can collaborate with, leveraging their success to provide meaningful engagement opportunities relevant for our Jewish communities in Australia.

On these trips we meet with game-changing leaders, government bodies and many diverse and innovative Jewish organisations with a focus on inspiring members to see what is possible with their giving utilising their time, talent and treasure and realise and fulfil their philanthropic vision. As a result of these trips, our capacity to think creatively about key aspects of Jewish life in Australia has been vastly amplified.
