Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Sadaqa Sisters

For the past several years, the Islamic Development Center and their "Sadaqa Sisters" community outreach program has helped a number of low and extremely low income children and families, and our local homeless population with a variety of services and resources such as non-perishable food bags, prepared meals, and clothing. Offering these resources on a quarterly basis, we rely on the kind support of our donors to accumulate the in-kind goods to then redistribute. This program requires an annual financial commitment of at least $5,000 to both sustain and expand this program.

Equity strategies

Last updated: 12/14/2023

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
