The Muslim community within the UK are afflicted with similar issues as the rest of society; alcohol and drugs misuse, homelessness, mental and physical illness, domestic and sexual violence, oppression, youth problems, economic deprivation and many more… This cannot be ignored and needs to be urgently addressed.

Considerable efforts are made by smaller charities within the communities in the UK to tackle such problems but cannot boost their services due to no or lack of resources, finances, awareness of Funders, or simply, rely only on public donations.

The intention behind the Meet the Funders event is to help charities in the UK that support British Muslims achieve their goals by strengthening their income stream, developing and building relationships with well-known Funders and to connect with other charities to collaborate, learn from and unite.

Event Schedule

Funders will speak about who they are, what they fund, criteria and process of applying for a grant.

Q&A Session
