About Us/Vision:
Founded in 2016, the American Muslim Fund (AMuslimFund) is the first grassroots, national community foundation in the United States leading sacred, sustainable, and strategic Muslim philanthropy for today and future generations. We do this by creating Donor Advised Funds, distributing grants, and building endowments.

AMuslimFund cultivates a thriving philanthropic ecosystem to advance charitable causes by evolving donor giving and diversifying funding pathways for community organizations.

What has AMuslimFund been up to?

Welcome back for another edition of AMuslimFund! We're gearing up for Ramadan already and hosting several informational sessions through April and May. One of our goals this year is to share our vision with your friends and family. If you would like to host a gathering in your community to learn more about the services we provide; endowments, donor advised funds, and grants, let's talk!

We are aiming to produce our annual report by April so you can see the impact our Donor Advised Funds have made. Since July 2017, our funds have granted nearly $160,000 to 58 organizations. Find out how you can join these amazing families by opening up your own Donor Advised Fund! Some of our donors have appreciated the convenience and tax advantages of their Donor Advised Fund, while others have created funds in honor or in memory of a loved one. Groups of family and friends have also created Giving Circles where they support causes together. 

We are currently recruiting members to join our board of advisors in marketing, finance, investment, technology, fundraising, and governance. If you're looking for a volunteer role to make high impact with your skillset, send us your resume and LinkedIn profile. By the end of the year, we hope to expand our board of directors as well.

We processed our 2017 tax receipt emails in the end of January. If you have not received yours, need us to resend it, or would like us to put one in the mail, please let us know.

To keep this work going, please consider becoming a monthly donor. Your gift will be immediately put to work by our expert team. Every gift: $10, $100, or $1,000 makes a difference. Your support allows us to work with many impressive nonprofit organizations. Please donate today so we can continue our work.

Organization Highlight - TAIBA USA

Taiba’s mission is to empower women and vulnerable members in the Muslim community by creating a safe space for mentorship, social and educational gatherings and skills building. Taiba believe that women who feel good about themselves, invest in their skills development, and share their gifts with other women are happier, healthier, and more complete and productive for society as a whole. Thus keeping this mission in mind, our vision is to create a culture of shared empowerment in the Muslim community.

Taiba’s programs focus on creating opportunities for seniors, refugees, reverts/converts and disenfranchised and marginalized women of different socioeconomic backgrounds to further their life skills through health, financial, legal and educational workshops, relationship-building and mentorship.  Taiba promotes self-care, personal growth, and collaboration in the community by developing programs that support our key values of teaching, advocacy, inclusion, building and advancement.   

In less than a year in operation, Taiba has successfully recruited over 40 volunteers who have dedicated over 500 hours of service, building relationships with over 15 masajid and community centers across Texas, and we have connected with over 1,000 women through Whatsapp and email.

Taiba is currently running its Spring programs focused on mental health and wellness.Here is to strong women; may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them!

Donor Spotlight - Farrukh Khan

Living in Detroit, Michigan, I care a lot about my local community. Growing up with a strong Islamic identity, I knew it was a responsibility to take care of our neighbors. When I learned about the American Muslim Fund, I was able to put this practice into action. Supporting AMuslimFund helps me take care of my religious and moral obligations to give back to the community. I'm sure like many of you, I care about education and humanitarian relief projects. When I support AMuslimFund, I know they are vetting organizations doing great work in these fields and more.

There's a lot of great work happening in Detroit, and that makes me happy. I'm excited for the work Muhi and AMuslimFund are doing across the country as well. Their work brings me hope. AMuslimFund is an innovative idea whose time has come. In an age where convenience rules supreme, AMuslimFund provides us the ability to support multiple organizations, bridging the gap between ease of use, reach and impact.

I contribute, knowing that I can play a small role in helping larger problems we face as a society today.  I’m honored to play a part in helping highlight the good-will coming from the love and generosity of Muslims to help others and I encourage everyone to become a monthly donor!
