"Why I'm a Donor to Americans For Peace Now" – Barbara Green

Barbara GreenI actually know people who have walked away from Israel. Sometimes the news from that beleagured country is too distressing to accept. But in my case, it’s my volunteer work with Americans for Peace Now that has kept me in the fold. APN – and our sister organization in Israel, Shalom Achshav -- know this is a long, hard slog. It’s not a struggle we’ll win overnight. We will win it, though, if we continue to support the Israel we love, the cause of a two-state solution, the democratic secular country Israel was supposed to be and will still be with our help. APN remains the best hope for Israel’s future. That’s why I’m a donor and have named APN in my will.

Sometimes we hear very committed supporters voice concerns that gifts after one’s lifetime are only for the rich. “Not so,” we reply. Many of these types of gifts come from donors of modest means. Some leave just a portion of their estate to benefit future generations. Anything you can do to help achieve peace would certainly be appreciated. No gift is too small.

In most cases, you can change your mind at any time. And you can opt to remain anonymous. But, by letting us know, you will give us the opportunity to say thank you and work with you to direct the funds as you see fit.
