Theory of Change

The El-Hibri Foundation (EHF) believes that if nonprofit organizations and Muslim and ally leaders have the capacity, resources, and collaborative relationships necessary for community building, then 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 leaders and organizations who share our vision of a world in which all individuals, regardless of race, religion, or gender, have an opportunity to thrive. 

  • EHF builds capacity through innovative programs that ensure current and future leaders have the strategies, skills, and tools necessary to successfully launch and manage high-performing organizations. 

  • EHF organizes communities by convening people of diverse backgrounds to cultivate new relationships and by investing in individuals and organizations that believe stronger communities are built with mutual trust 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.​
