The Mid-Atlantic Region of the FIDF was founded in late summer of 2008 in Baltimore and has grown to include new Chapters in Washington D.C. and Virginia.
With more than 3,000 active donors across the Region, we have been able to support many special projects and programs and do our part to help the soldiers. We have helped build a recreation/cultural center on the Urim base (Baltimore chapter), a gym on the Gozal base (Washington D.C. chapter) and a new gym and outdoor leisure space for the new Commando Brigade (Virginia chapter).
The entire Region participates in FIDF’s Adopt a Unit program. We have proudly adopted Shayetet 3, the third Flotilla of the Navy. In addition, the Washington Chapter has adopted three IAF squadrons; Baltimore supports the Kedem Search and Rescue Battalion, and Northern Virginia supports the HQ unit of Nachal Infantry Brigade. Our Region avidly supports the IMPACT! Scholarship Program, having funded more than 130 students with 68 active students.
Our Regional Annual ‘Standing Together’ Gala Dinner in Washington D.C., and our Baltimore Gala, attracts more than 1,200 attendees each year. The 2017 event in Washington D.C. broke our record, raising north of $800,000.
The Mid-Atlantic Region is very proud to have a robust and growing Young Leadership group, which comprises young professionals from across the Region. We offer local, regional and national programs that allow leaders to evolve, grow and demonstrate their support for FIDF and Israel.
