The El-Hibri Foundation bids a fond farewell to Maggie Siddiqi, Director of Communications and Strategic Initiatives. Just last month, Maggie celebrated three years with EHF. She was instrumental in the development of the current strategic plan, with its focus on advancing inclusion of and within American Muslim communities. Especially valuable to that process was her knowledge of Muslims and interfaith communities. Maggie will be departing EHF to begin a new role as Director of the Faith and Policy Initiative at the Center for American Progress.
“Maggie has been an amazing builder, thought partner and strategic thinker. I am grateful for her leadership in developing and executing our grantee-centric communications strategy,” said Farhan Latif, El-Hibri Foundation President. “Maggie’s thoughtful contributions through a period of rapid growth for the Foundation have helped establish the direction of some of our key programs and will have a lasting impact as we continue to empower and equip leaders to create positive social change in the coming years. We will miss having her on our leadership team, but will continue to build on the momentum she helped generate, and wish her well as she embarks on her new role at CAP.”
Maggie’s contributions span across the Foundation's work and have led to the development and growth of its communications department and outreach to nonprofits and leaders.
“I am so grateful for the last three years at EHF,” said Maggie Siddiqi. “I believe that our work together has had a profound impact on many nonprofits and we will continue to see these effects in the long term. What I learned and experienced here will be incredibly valuable to me for many years to come. I am grateful to have worked alongside such high-performing leaders and to have had the opportunity to support nonprofits that are taking on some of the most critical challenges of our time. I look forward to continuing to serve in the nonprofit sector alongside you all.”
EHF is fortunate to have Mawish Raza stepping in as interim Communications lead during the transition period. She has served as a communications consultant to EHF for the past few years. She will be taking forward and building on Maggie’s work at EHF.
