Thank you for a successful banquet!

Our gratitude goes to the approx. 1,000 community members who graced last night's banquet with your presence and joined our growing list of supporters.

Thanks to your generosity, we were able to raise over $260,000 to defend civil rights, empower American Muslims and promote mutual understanding. We will continue to work toward raising our 2017 budget of $500,000 so that we can scale our work to meet the challenges and grasp the opportunities before us so that in the future, not far from now, American Muslim children can grow up with the same hopes and dreams as any young American. If your family or friends missed the banquet last night, they can still donate at

We are also humbled by the dedication and hard work of the more than 100 volunteers and table captains helped make the event possible. Thank you!
