EMPOWERED SISTERS EMPOWER
This Ramadan, five women-led organizations have teamed together to do what they do best, support Women.
DID YOU KNOW?
73% of charitable donors in the world are women.
Yet! Charitable giving to womens' and girls' organizations represent a small share - 1.9%
This Ramadan, we're challenging you to give to organizations that support our Mothers, Aunties, Sisters, and Daughters.
MOMNetwork, LLC, a membership organization that empowers, engages, and supports the community's needs through establishing programs for MOMs and their families. MOMNetwork is built of a diverse group of Muslim women who connect with each other while receiving the tools and support needed to advocate for themselves and their families.
Fundraising For: Honoring Role Model Legacy Fund
MOMNetwork (Mother Of Muslims) established the Honoring Role Model Legacy Fund in 2021 in partnership with A Continuous Charity to award students in the DMV area an interest-free loan.
In 2017 we hosted our first annual Honoring Role Model Ceremony. It was a way to honor my MOM, who passed in 2016. Since then, we have celebrated over 50 women, which includes a posthumous award.
Our partnership to develop a legacy fund honoring our Legacy Awardees (posthumous) will support a deserving African American Muslim living in the DMV area with an interest-free student loan. This Legacy Fund will be managed by A Continuous Charity, allowing this to be a long-term source of sadaqah (a continuous charity) for our Legacy Awardees.
Please help us raise the additional 7,000.00 we need to provide this loan in Fall '23.

Muslims For Just Futures
Muslims For Just Futures (MJF) is a grassroots organization that builds power in Muslim communities through collective care, organizing, advocacy, and movement-building. Muslims for Just Futures is rooted in the DMV and committed to building long-term power and base-building in the region with a focus on centering working-class communities and women.
Fundraising For: The Guaranteed Income Program
Over the last three years, through our collective generosity, Muslims for Just Futures has given over $204,000 directly to Muslim working class families in the DMV to help fight evictions, provide rental support, pay for bills, and support families in addressing their basic needs.
However, we know that one time payments barely make a dent in the needs of our community members, so this Ramadan, we are launching a $50,000 zakat eligible fundraiser for Thriving Futures, a guaranteed income pilot program will support 5 working-class Muslim women in the DMV who are heads of household for 18 months, pouring into our community members and, along with our partners at Wider Circle, supporting them with a $500 monthly cash assistance, alongside workforce development, career services support, financial literacy, and community organizing training.
