What has AMuslimFund been up to?
 

Updating our Privacy Policy ... just kidding. Those emails are annoying, this one is awesome. Virtual high five!
 
Our Ramadan fundraising goal is $50,000 this year. Five generous families came together to donate $15,000, and over 625 other donors got us to $39,969. We need another $10,031 AND GUESS WHAT, we get a second bonus of $5,000 once we cross the finish line from another family. This two minute video (click image to play) explains what we did last year and what we hope to do this year.

What do Islamic Relief, the Houston Food Bank, and the University of Michigan have in common? 
 
 
 
Dear AMuslimFund supporter,
 
What do Islamic Relief, the University of Michigan, Amnesty International, Egypt Cancer Network, the Houston Food Bank, Muslim Wellness Foundation, the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding and over 80 other organizations have in common?
 
They have received more than $300,000 from the American Muslim Fund since July 2017.
 
Across the U.S., colleges, aid organizations, food pantries, mosques, schools, hospitals, domestic violence shelters, museums, and even a nonprofit archival organization documenting oral histories of the 1947 Partition in India and Pakistan have benefitted from our work.
 
The American Muslim Fund provides support to this broad spectrum of organizations because of the faith that donors like you have put into our vision. We are the vehicle for donors like you to support all your favorite causes with confidence, through one entity, receiving one single tax receipt. Our goal is to raise a $5 million endowment by the end of 2020 so that American Muslim Fund can become self-sufficient, all while helping other nonprofits focus on accomplishing their mission.
 
“American Muslim Fund can help all the nonprofits they work with to achieve their mission by providing grants to support their work. That's why I support AMuslimFund, each gift has a large impact.”
Ali ElashramAmerican Muslim Fund donor
