The Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. is honored to be a partner charity for the Boston Marathon next April -- the second year in a row.
At the Aga Khan Foundation, we believe we all have purpose. Driven by our faith in our shared humanity, we are dedicated to helping all people fulfill that promise for themselves. Our Foundation currently supports over 200 projects in 30 countries around the world. We are stronger together, and in a world where there are more differences and conflicts than ever before, now is the time to build a better future. We believe joining together and running 26.2 miles through Boston’s streets is a chance to embody that commitment.
Reliable hospitals, schools and community centers. Flourishing economies. Informed and engaged people who have the space and collective power to shape their own futures. These are the cornerstones of all thriving communities. Without them, families remain stuck in a cycle of poverty, clinging to insufficient government services and dependent on short-lived aid. The Aga Khan Foundation is breaking the cycle.
As a member of the Aga Khan Development Network, the world’s largest poverty solutions network, the Foundation helps communities around the world build better futures together. Harnessing the best from people of all walks of life, we build deep partnerships with local nonprofits, businesses, governments and community leaders based on a shared vision of prosperity for all. Working closely with our partners, we make long-term commitments to innovative programs that improve quality of life, from early childhood education to green space preservation. Poverty is a complex problem, yet we make progress when we integrate the efforts of organizations from all sectors and all regions of the world.
