Support Amichai Non Profit organization for people with Developmental & Physical Disabilities
Amichai, a nonprofit Israeli association for the welfare of people with developmental disabilities, established in 1994 to create a supportive environment in which children with developmental disabilities could grow and thrive, based on principles of full inclusion in normative society, and maximum independence.
At Amichai We envisage a society that provides high-quality, accessible and integrative services to all people with special needs throughout their lifetime, regardless of age or level of disability; enabling each individual to progress toward independence, equality & self- fulfillment.
We regard every person as a whole, an entire world unto himself, with unique qualities and abilities, desires and needs. We believe that people with developmental disabilities of all ages deserve an opportunity to live their lives fully, with dignity & quality of life, in a normative environment. We assert that the duty of our society is to ensure this birthright of its special sons and daughters, to be members of the community in which they reside, throughout their lifetime. Our focal mission is to respond to the authentic, urgent call of people with special needs and their families, and find ways to ease their inevitable hardships.

Why do we ask for your support?
85% of our annual $M3.5 budget, funded by governmental resources, covers only the basic needs our customers. We rely on fund raising activity to bridge the additional $M0.5 (15% of our budget). This support is critical to assure the high quality, inclusive and supportive programs, based on our vision and goals.
Fund raising activity is done in Israel and abroad, alongside development of independent sources of income.
