Please be assured that your charitable gift to Friends of Roots is fully tax deductible for which you will receive an end-of-the-year receipt from Oakbrook Church for your tax filing purposes. Donations to Friends of Roots supports Roots/Shorashim/Judur. Starting in 2016, Roots has been working on creating our own independent non-profit in the USA, called Friends of Roots, and we are expecting to receive our 501c3 approval from the IRS by early 2018. In the meantime, Oakbrook Church serves as our fiscal sponsor, generously giving us a means for donation without taking portions for themselves. Pastor John Moyle of the Oakbrook Church in Reston Virginia was one of the early forces that catalyzed the creation of Roots by meeting Palestinians and Israelis on the ground in their home environments and doing the unthinkable - introducing them to each other! Once we formed the Roots initiative, John continued to offer us support and guidance. To this day, the Oakbrook Church stands by our side, serving as the USA fiscal sponsor for American Friends of Roots. We are deeply grateful to John and the church leadership for all their help.
