FIDF is a non-political, non-military organization that works closely with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to provide for the well-being of its soldiers. In fact, we are the single organization representing the IDF across North America and Panama.

As the brave men and women of the IDF risk their lives to serve and protect Israel and the Jewish people worldwide, FIDF strengthens the bridge between the State of Israel and the U.S. and Panama to raise critical funds for IDF soldiers and their families. Our programs address their educational, financial, and emotional needs, fundamentally changing their lives and providing them with opportunities ahead. Last year alone, FIDF raised over $127 million and touched the lives of over 88,000 soldiers, veterans, and their loved ones.
