Najeeb’s Message to Supporters:
I’d like to offer my sincerest thanks to the ISF community and supporters for this generous award. I’m encouraged and inspired that our faith community has the philanthropic vision to support a new generation of American Muslim students who hope to make meaningful contributions in society by pursuing liberal arts educations. May ISF continue to grow and continue to fulfill its critical mission.
