Gates Foundation & Giving Circle Convening
Earlier this month, American Muslim Fund was invited as part of a Giving Circle convening to the Gates Foundation and Seattle Foundation. The focus was to gather input and feedback on strategies related to charitable giving, provide infrastructure and support for Giving Circles, and work with a variety of stakeholders to strengthen relationships and share knowledge between attendees to further connect and build the field. The convenings goal was to democratize, demystify, and diversify philanthropy. AMF was one of 60 participant organizations which included other community foundations, giving circles, and networks of nonprofits from across the country.
