Opening the virtual doors of higher education to all who seek it


American Friends of the Open University of Israel, Inc. (AFOUI) was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in 1981 to build awareness of the Open University of
Israel (OUI) in the United States and raise funds in order to provide grants to OUI to support the students, faculty, and growth initiatives of the OUI.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to you - our sponsors, donors, friends, and colleagues.  Your vital support is the foundation upon which the successes of the OUI have been built and upon which all its future achievements depend.

We invite you to join us in our life-changing mission to further the goals of the OUI, a pioneer and cutting-edge leader in distance learning, dedicated to educating all those
who would otherwise be denied a university education and to perpetuating the academic and intellectual traditions of the Jewish people.
