The ZOC Charitable Fund was incorporated in 1969 after United Israel Appeal separated from the Zionist Organization of Canada and became an independent organization. The establishment of the ZOC Charitable Fund allowed the organization to continue operating several programs and activities and function as a tax-exempt charitable organization. The Fund was administered by a Board of Trustees composed of 17 executive officers of the Zionist Organization of Canada in addition to several appointed trustees. The Charitable Fund was responsible for financing and overseeing several ZOC programs in Canada and Israel, including: Zionist libraries, youth scholarships, Zionist youth summer camps, the promotion of Hebrew language instruction, the provision of educational subsidies, and the Canada-Town project in Israel.
