Forever giving forever rewarding
UK-based projects positively impacting the Muslim community. We welcome transformative initiatives with smart resource utilisation.
Currently, grants up to £10,000 (capped at 20% of annual income) are awarded. We aim to raise this limit in future cycles with increased donations to our Waqf investment fund. For exceptional cases, grants up to £25,000 may be awarded. Apply if your project merits priority consideration.
We are open to funding diverse needs, including typical and atypical costs for specific projects or entire organisations. Funds cover operational (equipment, utilities), core (salaries, rent), and even capital costs (property, land). Direct beneficiary costs like meals or transport are also considered.

Before applying, please review our grant eligibility criteria to ensure that your project aligns with our funding priorities.
Complete the online grant application form. Please provide detailed information about your project, including its goals, objectives, budget, and expected outcomes.
The Grant Giving department will determine the strength of each application based on several factors:
- Amount and objectives of funding required.
- Number of beneficiaries
- How sustainable is the financial model of the organisation.
- Will the funding provided be required again?
- How unique is the project being delivered.
- Impact on local communities
- Urgency of project being delivered.
- Effectiveness of measuring deliverables
Successful applicants will undergo the due diligence process, where the following will be considered: financial wellbeing, compliance, project evaluation and impact assessment, leadership and governance. If required, we may conduct interviews or site visits as well as seek references from partners or beneficiaries.
After the due diligence is completed, KPIs and metrics for measuring performance will be agreed with the organisation. Grant recipients are required to provide periodic reports on the progress of their funded projects. This helps us track the impact of the grants and ensures accountability.
