Our Four Beneficiaries

(Click here for a PDF of the below information.)

Please do not write checks to 14 Friends of Palestine; we are too small to have a bank account!

1. If Americans Knew

If Americans Knew is running an ad campaign to inform the American public how much money the USA tax payers give to Israel each year. We will place an ad similar to the one pictured here in a newspaper, on buses, or on a billboard, depending on how much money we raise. 

If you would like to support the If Americans Knew ad campaign, please write a check payable to

If Americans Knew with Ad Campaign in the memo line, and send to:

14FP, PO BOX 6634, San Rafael, CA 94903

2. NorCal Sabeel

NorCal Sabeel is also running an ad campaign, informing the American public on how many Palestinian homes Israel has destroyed, how many Palestinian children Israel has killed, and the land Israel has stolen from Palestinians to build settlements. We will choose one ad to place in a newspaper, on buses, or on a billboard, depending on how much money we raise. Examples:

3. Khitam Qanoo', our sponsored child in Gaza

14 Friends of Palestine has been supporting Khitam Qanoo', a child in Gaza who attends the Atfaluna School for the Deaf, since 2007. We send the money through MECA, our fiscal sponsor. We try to send her $1,000 per year. Please visit our Children page for pictures and descriptions of Khitam. She is one of 11 children and the family is desperately poor. They live in Shujaiyah, which was badly damaged during the Israeli attacks of July/August 2014.

If you would like to support Khitam, you can donate online here or write tax deductible checks to MECA with Khitam Qanoo in the memo line, and send to:   

14FP, PO BOX 6634, San Rafael, CA 94903

4. 14 Friends of Palestine, Marin  

Since our start in Dec 2004, we have raised over $130,000 for various Palestinian charities. We also do outreach work in Marin, including an increasing amount of boycott work. As an example, see our Brides Boycott Ahava page here.

If you would like to donate to our outreach and BDS (boycott) work, please email us at:

You are Invited!

You are invited to support Palestine by taking part in our Sponsored Diet, by either taking part in the diet yourself, or by sponsoring one of the dieters. Contact us for a list!

This fundrasier is to benefit:

If Americans Knew Ad Campaign, NorCal Sabeel Ad Campaign, 14 Friends of Palestine , and Khitam, our sponsored child

Israel restricts the amount of food going in to Gaza, a ruthless and deliberate policy whereby the dietary needs of the Gazan people are chillingly calculated to keep the population alive at a near starvation level. An Israeli minister joked that they were 'putting the Palestinians on a diet'. Members of the international community are invited to join in a diet voluntarily, to show solidarity with the people of Gaza, and to raise funds for Palestine.

  6. Exercise more, on your own, or with your local group
  7. Collect money from sponsors
