The Tzedaka Where Every Penny Donated
Goes to Poor Families Living in Eretz Yisroel
There are many different Tzedakas out there. When you invest money in a business you carefully research it before laying out funds. You should do the same before giving money to a charitable organization. Although there are many worthy causes there are times a fundraiser will need to take a large commission. There are office expenses, workers, administrators and many other overhead fees. After all expenses only a small part of the money goes to the actual cause.
Yesod Yosef was created to bypass this issue. Yesod Yosef is run completely by volunteers . All overhead is paid for by private donors. Every penny donated (other than what is lost in the withdrawal and exchange to shekalim) is given directly to poor families.
There are many reasons why families can be poverty stricken in Eretz Yisroel. Certain cities such as Tzfas have a very limited job market. There might be health problems or other obstacles that prevent a person from working. It could be that they do work but their meager salary is not enough to pay the bills and food expenses of their large family.
