Pillars believes that investing in American Muslim organizations, leaders, and storytellers is key to building stronger communities where our differences, as well as our similarities, are understood and celebrated.
We believe that American Muslims should be at the helm of philanthropic efforts aimed at our communities. This is why Pillars is led by American Muslims, with an emphasis on building a donor network comprised of community members. We also work closely with major foundations supporting efforts in our community.
We approach our work through three main program areas:
- Grant Making
- Narrative Change
- Thought Leadership
