About this grant
This grant enables the Center for Arab American Philanthropy, which is a national program of the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS), to sponsor a year-long challenge to grow endowed assets. Gifts from donors establishing endowed funds will receive a fifty-cent match for every dollar donated. The grantee works to encourage strategic philanthropy in the Arab-American community through research, training, technical assistance, and development of informational materials; conducts donor-outreach activities; and provides donor services such as donor-advised funds. This is a national ethnic community foundation which needs support to continue to cultivate its donor base.
