…helping children reclaim their childhoods

Thank You For Another Wonderful Annual Fundraiser!

Our annual gala was a resounding success and a beautiful evening. Our theme was “Places, People & Play”, we went over capacity with attendees, who came despite a downpour of rain and limited parking! 

To see more, please watch this video montage, or see photos on our Facebook page.


A huge “Thank You” to all who made the Playgrounds for Palestine fundraiser such an overwhelming success! We are inspired by your generosity, and heartened by your friendship! Because of your support we look forward to continuing our work on the construction of more play-spaces for Palestinian children living under military occupation.

Update on Playgrounds and Community Spaces

The Budrus Community Space just got a new entrance and this summer PfP will be traveling to Palestine to further update this space, which was, until recently, a sloped and rocky trash heap.

This summer, Beit Fajjar, Budrus, and Aida playgrounds will be updated, and at least two additional sites will be started. 

Another Way To Give, Without Giving!

Just designate PfP as your 501c3 nonprofit organization of choice, and Amazon will donate a portion of your what you buy there to PfP.

Olive Oil, Always…

Ger you Fair Trade, USDA Certified Organic Palestinian Olive Oil here. Both the Rumi and Nabali olive oils come in elegant 500 mL bottles or beautiful IL tin cans.
