Thanks to the generous contributions of our donors, Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University is ensuring Hebrew University remains one of the leading learning institutions in the world.
Donors who go above and beyond are proudly recognized on the historic grounds of the university at our Board of Governors’ meeting held annually in June.
Wall of Benefactors
Recognition on the Benefactors Wall is awarded for lifetime giving of US $1,000,000 and over, given either by a one-time gift or cumulative gift, for any designation (physical facilities, research, scholarships and other projects). The Wall is located at the southwestern tip of the Mount Scopus campus, beautifully overlooking the Old City and West Jerusalem. Inscribed on the wall are the names of the donors, state or country of residence.
Wall of Life
Recognition on the Wall of Life is awarded for donations of US $100,000 – $999,999 earmarked for scholarships, research and other projects. The Wall of Life is located at the southeastern tip of the Mount Scopus campus, beautifully overlooking the Old City and West Jerusalem. Inscribed on this wall are the names of the donors, state, or country of residence.
Wall of Trustees
Inscribed on the Wall of Trustees are the names of donors who have donated US $50,000 – $99,999 for scholarships or research. The Wall of Trustees is located in the Mount Scopus Forum on the wall closest to the outdoor pedestrian exit in the direction of the Faculty of Social Sciences, and on the wall adjacent to the passage leading to the Faculty of Law.
Inscribed on the Founders Wall are names of donors who have contributed US $25,000 – $50,000 for scholarships or research. The Founders Wall is located in the Mount Scopus Forum on the large wall facing the courtyard between the Bloomfield Library and the Faculty of Humanities.
Wall of Endowed Chairs
Listed on the wall of Endowed Chairs all professorial chairs at the Hebrew University with the name of the chair and donor, country and date of establishment. The Wall is located in the Mount Scopus Forum adjacent to the entrance to the Administration Building.
Plaques for endowed physical facilities are almost always located on or near the facility that has been named. The size, location, and style of the plaque depend upon the facility itself. A plaque for the donation of a garden might be a large engraved stone, while donor recognition for an entire building could take the form of the donor’s name engraved on the outside wall of the building. Plaques for lectures halls and rooms are usually placed in the corridor outside the facility.
