David Homan, is Executive Director of America-Israel Cultural Foundation, AICF, for the past five
years. An organization that has America-Israel Cultural Foundations is a 71 year old nonprofit that
has helped over 14,000 artists, In my tenure AICF has raised over $12 million to support young artists
in Israel, allocating nearly $10 million in direct support of young artists, including over 2000
individual artists. I am a professional composer working with live dance and chamber music. Before
AICF, I worked with the Creative Capital Foundation, the Da Capo Chamber Players, and dozens of others
AICFs impact in Israel is so widespread we are known simply as the Keren or Keren Sharett.
Recipients of the America-Israel Cultural Foundations scholarships cover a wide range of individuals
in Music, Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre, and Film. Some are groups or arts institutions, from Batsheva
Dance Company and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra to the Israel Museum and the Bezalel Academy of Art
and Design. Without our early investment in many of these artists, groups, and institutions, they
would not have had the ability to continue creating and expanding the rich legacy of Israeli art and
