Start Your Own Campaign

Friends of the IDF is pleased to announce a powerful new peer-to-peer fundraising tool that allows friends and family to create their own campaign. This new tool, called "Friends-Asking-Friends", gives all those who support our cause and share our goals, the ability to create their own personal fundraising campaign to raise money on behalf of FIDF.

If you have an idea for your own campaign and would like to raise money for an event/program supporting the wellbeing of the Israel Soldiers, contact your local chapter or see the existing campaigns we have listed below.

2012 National YL Mission Fundraising Campaign

FIDF's Formal Education Program seeks to increase opportunities for soldiers to complete 12 years of formal education and receive a high school completion certificate by the end of their military service, enabling them to finish their military service with a greater chance of success in civilian life.

Most civilian jobs and educational institutions in Israel require at least a high school completion certificate, making the Formal Education Program integral in giving a large number of soldiers the opportunity to finish their service on more even footing with their peers.

Our goal is to raise $25K for the FIDF Formal Education Program. And we ask our friends and family to join us; whether your donation is $18 or $18,000 – any and every amount will make a difference – especially since NY Young Leadership will match up to $25K of what we raise for the Formal Education Program. 

To support this initiative, and to start your own personal or team fundraising page, simply click here, and click on "participant registration". After your page is created, you will be able to invite anyone you wish to complete your goal. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dan Haskell at
