Grants for Community Organizations

The Mahmoud Taman Foundation provides grants to community organizations for initiatives that promote interfaith and civic causes and whose general nature is the promotion of humanity. Projects may include efforts such as: interfaith outreach actions (especially those advocating for inclusivity of Islam), civic participation, peace education, humanitarian issues, health promotion (including mental health awareness and advocacy), education and literacy, and arts/culture. We also strongly encourage projects that work to educate about Islam.
