A Year of Learning
Relationships with philanthropic and sponsoring institutions and American Muslim social, civic, and cultural service organizations are strengthening. In this engagement, Muslim organizations and their allies have recognized the need for improving fact-based knowledge, as well as removing systemic barriers that historically prevent Muslim American nonprofit organizations from acquiring equitable opportunity to build relationships and receive funding and resources.
Welcome to the 2021 Year of Learning. During the Fall of 2020, a committee of leaders convened to start planning the first of a series of yearlong events that will foster a deeper understanding of American Muslims, Muslim NGO communities, nuances of funding, and specific issues these communities face.
The goals of the year-long program series are:
- To build upon our collective power to open up pathways to foundational giving for Muslim American non-profit organizations serving in the contiguous United States.
- To utilize social capital to bring about change in perspectives with foundation leaders.
- To identify individuals and foundations that would benefit from the Learning Launch and provide a connection to them throughout 2021 and beyond.
A convening titled Muslims in America: A Learning Launch for the Philanthropic Community will launch the series on Thursday, February 18, 2021 from 12 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.CST.
Please join us as we strengthen our collective power to open pathways to impactful giving for Muslim American non-profit organizations serving in the United States. Leaders from across the Philanthropic Community, Government, and Corporations have committed to joining us.
