Volunteering in Israel

The Presidential Award for Volunteerism is the most prestigious award in the field of volunteering, given each year by the President of the State of Israel to 12 winners. The aim of this award is to recognize the work done by individuals and groups in all sectors of the populations and to encourage the spirit of voluntarism in Israels society. Hundreds of recommendations of suitable volunteers arrive at the Presidents Residence to be examined by a special judging committee. 12 winners, whose volunteering effort has been the most prominent that year, are selected. The winners are presented with the Presidential award in a ceremony held each year in the garden of the Presidents Residence, with many participants being present.

For details on how to submit recommendations please contact the National Council of Volunteerism in Israel: Phone: 03-5608888, Email: info@ivolunteer.org.il
