AMF Planning for the Future
AMF's Board of Directors held its second annual retreat in mid-September. We reviewed our progress and efforts so far, and set our priorities for the next three years. More than ever, we are committed to continuing the important work of our community foundation to transform Muslim philanthropy for today and generations to come. From an idea in 2016 to an organization distributing over $500,000 to nearly 100 organizations since July 2017, our growth is reflective of your trust in our ability to be stewards of your donations.
Thank you for joining us in this journey. As always, we welcome your feedback and questions. If you'd like to volunteer your skillset, reach out to learn more about how you can help accomplish our goals in 2018 and beyond!

Want to Meet?
Co-Founder, Muhi Khwaja will be visiting Seattle, WA October 7-8, Houston, TX October 19-21, and New York City, NY from November 2-7. If you or your family and friends would like to meet and find our more about how we can help with your charitable-giving, get in touch! We will be hosting some events and we would love it if you could join us. If you're interested in hosting AMF in your home or place of worship, let us know, we would love to visit.
Help us Grow
As with any growing organization, we are looking to increase our monthly donations. Whether it's $5, $50, or $500 a month, please consider investing in a community foundation that works for you. Each gift we make showcases the philanthropic spirit of the Muslim community. With the Muslim population of the U.S. being 1%, we'd love to showcase Muslim philanthropy in the U.S. as being greater than 1% of charitable giving!
