ISRAEL'S SOLDIERS. OUR FUTURE.

Right now, only IDF soldiers stand between life and terror.

THE IDF’S GREATEST NEED NOW

PROUD OF ISRAEL’S GUARDIANS

The soldiers of the IDF risk their lives day and night to maintain Israel’s security. While they are on the frontlines, FIDF strengthens their wellbeing by responding to their most urgent needs

HOW YOU CAN TRANSFORM A LIFE

Support the priorities set directly by the IDF:

  • Lone Soldier Support

    Bring them a feeling of warmth and community through housing, shabbat meals, flights home, a 24/7 call center, and more.

  • Dignity

    Provide financial relief to IDF soldiers whose families are in economic difficulty, gifting them with peace of mind so they can fully dedicate themselves to defending Israel.

  • Education

    Give at-risk teens a second chance through Project Overcome; soldiers without 12 years of education their high school diploma through Formal Education; or scholarships for higher education through IMPACT!

Give now to show your support and encourage others to do the same. Follow FIDF via email and social media to remain in close contact with FIDF and bolster Israel’s courageous soldiers.
