Are you ready to make a difference?
The Chai Challenge is The Fellowship's one-of-a-kind fundraising adventure committed to feeding, mentoring, and providing clothing for Israel's most vulnerable people!
The Challenge is not a run, not a race, not an obstacle course. The Chai Challenge is about self. It is about challenging your personal faith journey. It is about challenging yourself, with others to make a difference in the lives of needy children. Are you ready to make a difference?
Here are two ways you can sign up to participate:
1. As an individual
a. Sign up on the Chai Challenge website as a Virtual Participant
2. As a team
a. Decide if you will lead a group as a Team Captain. or if you will be participating as a Participant of a team.
*Note: If you have a large team of more than 10-15 people (ie. a church or school), you can set yourself up as an Ambassador. where you will then designate Team Captains to their teams. This is great for youth groups or ministry groups to set up multiple teams to compete.
After registering your role as an individual or as part of a team, now you simply ask people to support you! Get online, spread the word on your social media platforms and raise funds for those who desperately need our help.
Over 1.7 million Israelis live below the poverty line. And almost a quarter of these are children!
For families who face the daily struggle to make ends meet, items like new clothes, backpacks, school supplies, and sport activities are considered "luxury items". You can change all this by setting a Chai Challenge goal to raise funds and save lives.
Join us in raising vital funds for clothing cards and backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need throughout the Holy Land.
Unfortunately, many children in Israel don’t have the opportunity to join a soccer club or receive after-school tutoring. The Fellowship needs your help to close the poverty gap faced by youth and children in the Holy Land.
We have partnered with local neighbourhood soccer leagues to provide tuition for children living in poverty so they too can participate equally with their friends. This program engages kids from all backgrounds and faith in afterschool learning and play.
Join us in this special opportunity to spread optimism and hope to Israel's youth!
Over 22% of the population in Israel have little to no food in their pantry. Many single mothers must forgo their daily meal in order to feed their young children. We need your help to alleviate this burden and provide the gift of food cards and pantry boxes for families struggling to put food on the table.
Join us in this mission to feed the hungry in Israel!
If you have already registered as a participant but would like to become a Team Captain, please send an email email@example.com with your name and TEAM NAME. We will send you a notification when complete.

In Hebrew, the word "chai" (pronounced "hi") means life. Becoming a "Change Champion" with the Chai Challenge tells others that your faith supports life. It tells others you want to become a change agent. By becoming a "Change Champion" you are demonstrating your gratitude for life by sharing what you have...as well as challenging others...for those who have far less.
