Beginning in the mid-1920s, the Near East Relief leadership made a conscious shift from emergency relief to sustainable long-term development projects. The organization changed its name to the Near East Foundation (NEF) in 1930 to reflect this expanded mission. The Foundation’s first project helped young adults in Greece to transition from the orphanage system to careers in agriculture. NEF has maintained a presence in the Middle East and North Africa since its inception.

NEF is a registered 501(c)(3) organization in the US (EIN 13-1624114). Your donation is fully tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. NEF is also legally registered as a Charity in the UK (no. 1150993) and an International NGO in Belgium (0708-928-458).
