Organization Highlight - Institute for Social Policy and Understanding

What do a policy maker seeking data to inform legislative efforts, a journalist seeking facts for an article, an advocate seeking data for a campaign and an Imam seeking to strengthen their mosque have in common?

They all turn to the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU). With a vision of a vibrant and truly pluralistic America, where Muslims are strong and equal participants, ISPU conducts objective, solution-seeking research that informs the public and empowers American Muslims to develop their community and fully contribute to democracy and pluralism in the United States. In a nutshell, through research and education, ISPU strives to safeguard pluralism and protect the rights of American Muslims, catalyze community development, and build understanding between communities and people. ISPU works towards these goals through a three-pronged approach that discovers, educates, and enables. They Discover by looking at pressing issues and solutions that address common challenges. They then Educate the general public by sharing what the research has revealed. And, finally, ISPU Enables others to activate their findings and research-based recommendations in their own work.

And what they do works! In 2017 alone, they conducted 11 major research projects addressing challenges facing American Muslims communities. They partnered with more than 100 expert scholars and practitioners across the nation to develop effective and actionable solutions for the challenges they studied. They reached nearly 6,000 people with nearly 50 research sharing events and connected regularly with over 25,000 people online. Their research appeared in the media on more than 200 occasions, reaching millions of people and sparking much needed data-based conversations. And, they connected 1,000 change makers with new resources and information, impacting the lives of millions of Americans.

In this age of alternative facts, ISPU safeguards the truth and provides an antidote to misinformation. To learn more about ISPU’s unique and vital work, please check out ISPU’s website.

Donor Spotlight - Stephanie Boersma


As a donor to the American Muslim Fund, I have the utmost faith in their commitment to philanthropy and bettering the world.  When I first heard of the concept, I had a lot of questions, but took the time to learn from the AMuslimFund team. I find it inspiring how they build relationships with many nonprofits and provide more funding to them throughout the year via grants.

I like to believe that humanity is comprised of good, kind people who view stewardship as an ideal. I love how AMuslimFund embodies that worldview, and it is an honor to contribute to a group that is committed to emphasizing how Muslims are a vital part of the (philanthropic) community. I am looking f
orward to all of the positive change the American Muslim Fund will affect.
