Donate to ISF
Thank you for consider a gift to the Islamic Scholarship Fund.
When you give to ISF, you provide the foundation for our scholars' success and the success of our organization for years to come.
Ways to Give
Systemic change doesn't happen overnight. Increasing representation and sharing our stories requires ongoing support during and after our scholars' studies. A monthly donation provides that support and helps improve public policy and opinion over the long term.
Create Your Own Scholarship
Establish a scholarship in honor of your family, company, university, or organization, without any of the heavy legal and administrative paperwork. Was the key to your success your education and/or the support of a mentor or friend? Pay it forward. Sponsor an American Muslim student pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in media or policy.
Engage your friends, co-workers, and family members in a crowdfunding-style fundraiser that not only contributes to our organization and scholars, but also offers the opportunity to bring your social circle and/or family in a socially-conscious activity.
How Your Donation Is Used
The majority of funds raised at ISF are allocated to our four primary programs and alumni relations. Outside of directing your donations directly to students, film grantees, interns, and fellows, we also offer numerous opportunities to connect with our scholars and learn more about their academic and professional success.
Join ISF's Sustainers Circle
Our Sustainers Circle offers an exclusive opportunity for our most esteemed supporters to invest in the long-term stability of our Cycle of Support through a Waqf, or religious endowment. Establishing an endowment ensures that your values and priorities as a donor are maintained by our organization for perpetuity.
Donate Stock or Mutual Funds
Donating stock, securities, and mutual fund shares is an effective way to help ISF support the next generation of American Muslim leaders. Making this gift is simple and offers you valuable financial benefits:
- You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds.
- The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible.
- There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation.
Donate Your Car
