The Falic Family Private Foundation (EIN: 20-2734770) is a grantmaking foundation which supports a number of Jewish and pro-Israel causes. The family was founded by members of the Florida based Falic family, a wealthy Jewish family who have made major donations to a range of pro-Israel causes and to American politicians from both the Republican and Democratic parties. A number of organisations supported by the foundation are directly involved in illegal settlement activity within the Occupied Territories.[1] The family are the current owners of Duty Free America which was purchased by the family in 2001.

The organisation has made significant donations to the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces an organisation of which Nily Falic serves as national chair.[3]
