    Matthew Bennett, Managing Director, Resource Development

    Matthew Bennett serves as the Managing Director and lead development professional for the American Committee for the Tel Aviv Foundation. He is responsible for the organization’s financial resource development, operations, and activities across the United States –– raising awareness of and support for the Tel Aviv Foundation.

    Matthew studied finance, international marketing, and information technology at American University in Washington, D.C., and the European-American Institute of Technology in France. For more than a decade, he has worked with local and national nonprofit and pro-Israel organizations to support Israel advocacy and Holocaust education, combat BDS and anti-Semitism, promote interfaith cooperation and LGBTQ acceptance, and improve the quality of life for at-risk youth and the elderly. He previously served as the National Director of Development for the Zionist Organization of America and was the Israel & Jewish Community Relations Director for the Jewish Federation of Atlantic & Cape May Counties in NJ.

    Matthew holds dual US-Israeli citizenship and resides in New York City with his wife, Tali, and their daughter, Aria. His favorite part about working for the Tel Aviv Foundation is seeing the positive impact that US support has on the people and city of Tel Aviv, which was once his home.
