BENEFITING: Atlas Corps
Atlas Corps is launching a "Muslim Engagement Fund" that is a special fund to be used for (1) engaging leaders in Muslim-majority countries through the Atlas Corps Fellowship and (2) seek to develop new partnerships that educate Americans, citizens of Muslim-majority countries and also leaders around the world about how we can work together to address critical social issues and provide a counter action to those who are spreading hate, both in the U.S. and abroad.
If 100 people donate to this campaign before December 31, the Founder and CEO of Atlas Corps will donate $10,000 as well. AND, if $10,000 is raised outside of Scott Beale's donation, one of our board members will match it with an additional $10,000.
Atlas Corps supports leaders all around the world and we believe the most effective way to address critical social issues is by training, networking and supporting the best rising social change leaders by bringing them into the United States to serve at nonprofit organizations for a year. We've done this now for 10-years, we've partnered with the White House to grow our program and work hand-in-hand with many of the best nonprofits in the world. Our program is not just designed for Muslim leaders (although 40% of our Fellows and 30% of our alumni are Muslim), but we feel that this issue -- the relationship between the U.S. and Muslim-majority countries is one of the most important issues where there are not enough people and organizations developing impactful solutions. Therefore, Atlas Corps wants to increase our engagement in this issue and is asking for your help.
