The Muslim Giving Project

The Muslim Giving Project (MGP), a new initiative, aims to provide American Muslims with the resources to do good and give better. MGP's goal is to foster a more dynamic American Muslim charitable culture in a two-pronged approach: the "Muslim Giving Project Fund" and the Muslim Giving Project Lab." The MGP Fund provides American Muslims with the tools, resources and platform to make secure charitable donations to professionally reviewed projects. The MGP Fund is a new model in the philanthropic space, developed as a hybrid that combines traditional foundation models with crowdsourcing platforms. MGP Fund is a fiscally sponsored initiative at the Community Initiatives Fund of the California Community Foundation. The MGP Lab aims to engage and excite American Muslims about their charitable giving through various activities such as frequent blogs, events, and giving challenges.
