Social Support Grant 1/2021

Alhamdulillah, our first Grant for NGOs is open for applications. This is possible only through the generous contributions of our donors. May Allah Bless all of them for their charity and effort. The Grant is targeted toward meeting the needs of two very vulnerable segments of our society; orphans and persons with disabilities. This Cause is something that is very close to the hearts of our donors and our team at MCF.

Sahl ibn Sa’d reported: The Prophet (ﷺ) said,
“Myself and the caretaker of an orphan will be in Paradise like this,”
and he held his two fingers together.

This Grant is the result of just a few months of donations from our donors. We hope to open further grant opportunities on other focus areas with the continued support of our existing donors and new donors who join us in future.

May Allah bless all of us for our efforts.

Those who believe and do righteous deeds: joy awaits these, and their final homecoming will be excellent.’
(Quran 13:29)

The deadline for submission of proposals is 31 March 2021.

Maldivian Community Foundation

The Maldivian Community Foundation (MCF) is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation registered at the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Community Empowerment of the Maldives (reg. no. CR/158/2019), and registered as a tax exempt organisation at the Maldives Inland Revenue Authority. Its mission is to enable individuals, communities and partners to sustainably administer their charitable and philanthropic aspirations. It does this through the management of donated funds and disbursement of grants, scholarships and financial aid. We aim to follow the well-established community foundation model, tweaking it to the Maldivian context, and thereby positioning ourselves as the premier fundraising and grant making organisation in the country. We plan to provide tools and instruments for the Maldivian community to partake in perpetual charity (sadagah jariyah) and philanthropy, and support the non-governmental sector by providing grants and technical assistance. We would also be working closely with the government and national development partners to strengthen the governance and accountability of the non-profit sector.
