Emergency Student &
Security Support Fund

As Israel faces unprecedented attacks and fights to protect the lives of its citizens, the Technion’s first and foremost concern is the safety of its campus community. In response to the ongoing war, the Technion has established an emergency fund to ensure it will be able to protect its students and staff, as well as its campus infrastructure, during this dangerous time.

The Technion needs your help to support students and staff serving in the IDF, as well as the people, computer systems, and security equipment on the Haifa campus. Funds raised for the Emergency Student and Security Support Fund will be directed toward two main areas: Student Support and Campus Support.  Learn more >>
