The MGP Fund is currently under construction. The MGP team learned a great deal during the launch of the MGP Fund, and we are currently working on making revisions and developing some additional resources. In the meantime, visit us at MGP Labs to check out our new Ramadan Kareem app!
About Us
The Muslim Giving Project

MGP 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.

MGP is comprised of 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. MGP Fund is a new model in the philanthropic space, developed as a hybrid that combines the best of the traditional foundation model with the best of 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.

Our Approach

The MGP is anchored in human-centered design, which uncovers the underlying needs of our specific users. Using this methodology, the MGP team focused on American Muslim emotions and motivations around giving. The MGP platform and resources were designed to directly meet the needs of the American Muslim users we worked with over the past year.

Who We Are

The Muslim Giving Project was launched by 2013 Stanford University's Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school) fellow Nadia Roumani, along with a team of students and professionals coming from law, education, engineering, and product design. MGP is now collaboratively managed by a team of nonprofit professionals and Stanford undergraduate and graduate students.
