About El-Hibri Foundation

At the El-Hibri Foundation (EHF), we recognize that the broader social fabric is made stronger when the distinct communities that make up America are healthy, growing, and active contributors to our collective future. The Foundation was inspired by the philanthropy of the late Ibrahim El-Hibri, his wife Elisabeth, and their family. We believe that inclusion and collaboration are fundamental to a flourishing society. EHF works to tap into these values, so collectively we can work together to create a thriving world where everyone can achieve the American Dream.  


How are we working to make these dreams realities? In our current time, the American Muslim community is facing increasing challenges that question its place in, or seek to exclude it from our national fabric. Additionally, many of the nonprofit organizations that are working to create vibrant, socially integrated communities that include American Muslims have few resources and are underdeveloped. The El-Hibri Foundation is a philanthropic organization that empowers and equips American Muslim leaders and their allies to build these thriving, inclusive communities. To this end, EHF makes grants and implements innovative programs that provide resources and skills, forge collaborative relationships, and increase inclusion of and within American Muslim communities. 


Our Theory of Change

The El-Hibri Foundation (EHF) believes that if American 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 individuals and organizations who share our vision of a world in which all individuals, regardless of race, religion, theology, political party, or gender, have an opportunity to thrive. 
  • EHF builds capacity through innovative programs that ensure current and future leaders have the skills and tools necessary to successfully launch and manage their organizations. 
  • EHF organizes communities by bringing people of diverse backgrounds to the table to forge new partnerships and by investing in individuals and organizations that share our belief that stronger communities are built with cooperation and collaboration.
