What we aim to solve New!

The El-Hibri Foundation (EHF) invests in nonprofits advancing inclusion of and within American Muslim communities. Like many nonprofits organizations, these are under-resourced, and now face increasing difficulties as the communities they support experience rising discrimination. EHF believes that if nonprofit leaders have the management skills, financial resources, and collaborative relationships necessary for effective community building, then American Muslim communities will thrive.

The El-Hibri Foundation is a philanthropic organization that empowers and equips Muslim leaders and their allies to build thriving, inclusive communities. EHF makes grants and implements innovative programs to provide resources and skills, forge collaborative relationships, and increase inclusion of and within American Muslim communities.
The Foundation's theory of change is: if nonprofit organizations have the capacity, resources, and collaborative relationships necessary for community building, they can become more effective in advancing inclusion in America.

The El-Hibri Foundation (EHF) advances inclusion of and within American Muslim communities by investing financial, physical and relational resources in individuals and organizations who share our vision of a world in which all individuals, regardless of race, religion, theology, political party, or gender, have an opportunity to thrive.
EHF empowers leaders through innovative programs that ensure current and future leaders have skills and tools necessary to successfully launch and manage their organizations.
EHF builds communities by bringing people of diverse backgrounds to the table to forge new partnerships and by investing in individuals and organizations that share our belief that stronger communities are built with cooperation and collaboration.

The El-Hibri Foundation enjoys:
- a dedicated staff of 10 individuals,
- a more than 15-year history of respected grantmaking which is fully catalogued online: http://www.elhibrifoundation.org/grants,
- a beautiful, centrally-located DC building as a safe space for dialogue and meetings for dozens of mission-aligned organizations, and
- professional membership in the Council on Foundations, Exponent Philanthropy, the Peace and Security Funders Group and other philanthropic initiatives.

The El-Hibri Foundation tracks grantee success along a number of metrics, including staff and board training and capacity, nonprofit management skillsets, and their overall organizational effectiveness.
EHF also tracks its own programmatic success on detailed metrics, including social media engagement, relationship development, participant surveys, and participant engagement.

The El-Hibri Foundation envisions a society where everyone can achieve the American Dream in a diverse and inclusive world. In 2014, the Pew Research Center released survey results demonstrating that Muslims are the least liked religious group in America. (Only 40% of respondents reported positive attitudes toward Muslims). In 2017, a repeat of this survey demonstrated an 8-point rise in positive attitudes toward Muslims, although they are still viewed significantly more negatively than any other religious group in America. EHF continues to tracks progress of inclusion of and within American Muslim communities through indicators like these.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
