Members of the Knesset introduced legislation to reclassify associations (Amutot) as non-public institutions for tax law purposes. The amendment will jeopardize access by such entities to other foreign funding if it goes into effect. The amendment is under attack by Israeli NPOs, and ICCSL is currently analyzing the legislation on behalf of Israeli NPOs. The proposed amendment can be found at Israel_draft_legislation_16_2_on_foreign_political_entity_funding.pdf. The current Law on Amutot is also available in the ICCSL Documentation Center.
