I have this sentence:

I am planning to give all my endeavor to help my homeland and my citizens as well.

I used to listen to English, not write it. So, from the sense of listening, I think it is not correct.

I would rather say "I am planning to make every endeavor to help my homeland, and my citizens as well." since endeavor means "an attempt to do something." Endeavor is especially the American English spelling; British English would probably use endeavour.

As for "and my citizens as well," it is probably not necessary, as homeland should be understood to include the inhabitants. It is probably better to use my compatriots, which means all the people who were born, or are the citizens of, the same country as you were born or are citizen of.
