The National Award aims to stimulate volunteerism in a sustainable manner among individuals and entities, highlight and honor outstanding voluntary work and their sponsors, contribute to sustainable development in the field of volunteerism in the Kingdom, and enhance the quality of voluntary efforts and initiatives.

Six categories are targeted in the awards: government, non-profit, private, education sectors (universities, colleges, education departments), voluntary teams, as well as individuals.

The award includes three tracks: government, non-profit and private sectors, including universities, colleges and education departments, are in first track, the second track is for volunteer groups, and the third track is dedicated to individuals.

The Ministry invited those interested in participating in the Award from entities and individuals to visit the National Platform for Volunteerism.
