Languages reflect and shape their speakers’ mindsets. They are a vehicle for different cultures and heritages. The mission of Polis is to allow people to share the human experience of other people, from different regions and times.
Polis is one of the few places in the region where people from all ethnicities and religious backgrounds get to know each other, learn and work together in a spirit of mutual respect and friendship. Polis has become a reference institution and a focal point of attraction for Jews and Arabs who wish to take part in their neighbors’ life by mastering each other’s language.
We do everything we can to minimize the costs of studying at the Institute. Yet, the living costs and the tuition fees remain too high for many students. By donating to Polis, you will be able to sponsor a student and allow him/her to learn a language or to graduate with us.
Polis regularly organizes academic conferences on subjects in the Humanities. The conferences bring scholars from all around the world together and their proceedings are published by important academic publishers. Sponsor an event at Polis and get recognition and exposure for your business.
Your donation, large or small, will make a huge difference. You can be sure that your gift will be applied where it will have the greatest impact. Your gift can be a special contribution, or you can commit to a recurring donation.
Recurring donations make our jobs a little easier as they allow us to plan and budget accordingly. By giving a special gift, or signing up for monthly contributions, you are investing in the lives of college students from all around the world and especially in Jerusalem. Your gift is what makes learning possible, keeps the lights on in our classrooms, covers the cost of utilities and building rent. You are investing directly in the lives of students who will go on to impact the world in hundreds of different careers and ministries around the world and will shape and change someone’s life forever.

Many students, often very gifted and knowledge-thirsty, greatly desire to study but cannot afford to do it. They have life projects and are looking for help to make them true. It might be a potential teacher of Greek, a Bible scholar, or an Arab student who needs to learn Hebrew in order to find a job. Polis constantly receives demands for financial help. If you wish to support a student, please contact us and we will connect you with the student whose project you want to fund.
