Theory of Change
The El-Hibri Foundation (EHF) believes that if nonprofit organizations have the capacity, resources, and collaborative relationships necessary for community building, they can become more effective in advancing inclusion in America. 
  • EHF advances inclusion of and within American Muslim communities by investing financial, physical and relational resources in individuals and organizations who share our vision of a world in which all individuals, regardless of race, religion, theology, political party, or gender, have an opportunity to thrive.
  • EHF empowers leaders through innovative programs that ensure current and future leaders have skills and tools necessary to successfully launch and manage their organizations.
  • EHF builds communities by bringing people of diverse backgrounds to the table to forge new partnerships and by investing in individuals and organizations that share our belief that stronger communities are built with cooperation and collaboration.
The El-Hibri Foundation invests in nonprofit organizations from diverse sectors that advance the inclusion of American Muslim communities, which are currently under-resourced and now face increasing challenges. In addition to its other areas of work, the Foundation continues the El-Hibri family’s charitable tradition of supporting orphans in the Middle East, particularly in Lebanon.
The El-Hibri Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation based in Washington, D.C.‚Äč
