PRACTICAL AND EMOTIONAL REINFORCEMENT FOR EVERY IDF SOLDIER

It’s no secret that the daily service of an IDF soldier is typically teeming with relentless challenges coming from every direction. While we cannot quelch the varied imposing onslaughts that our protectors face, we can offer ways to ease their minds and spirits of certain basic concerns and burdens. When our soldiers are immersed knee-deep in fighting the good fight, the least they should be worrying about are fundamental financial needs back home. Likewise, a soldier’s inner well-being must remain robust, despite the emotional toll military service can entale, day in and day out.

EMPOWERING BRIGADES WITH MULTIFACETED SUPPORT 

The FIDF Adopt a Brigade program offers multi-faced support, lifting soldiers up to rise to the challenging mission of protecting Israel. Support benefits a full brigade, chosen by the IDF, with funds dedicated to both their financial welfare and their emotional well-being, while simultaneously proving donors with a unique opportunity to connect directly with IDF soldiers.

FINANCIAL RELIEF

Funds are distributed to soldiers who face financial difficulties and Lone Soldiers who lack familial support

TRAINING COMPLETION EVENTS

When IDF soldiers reach important milestones, such as the completion of a course or an advancement in training, FIDF helps to honor their achievements with celebratory events and commemorative gifts.

UNIT SPIRIT

Every recruit is welcomed into their Brigade with unit swag. This small token of appreciation helps to bond soldiers together as family and significantly raises morale.

SOLDIER RECOGNITION EVENTS

Outstanding soldiers in adopted units who excel in their duties or go above and beyond the call to action are recognized and celebrated, creating a culture in which soldiers aspire to excellence.
