In September 2013, a group of Dallas-based foundations, including the Harold Simmons Foundation, Boone Family Foundation, Embrey Family Foundation and Dallas Women’s Foundation, created a donor-advised fund to invest in the sustainability of Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation.
“To have the continued support of these four well-respected foundations is a tremendous endorsement of our work to empower women in our community,” said Hind Jarrah, executive director of Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation. “We are grateful for the opportunity to build an organization that will have a positive impact in North Texas for many years to come.”
The fund, which is distributed over the course of two years, will allow Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation to enhance our infrastructure and ensure the longevity of our programs. The fund has enabled us to create and fill the chief philanthropy officer position so that we can attract more charitable contributions and community partners to support the foundation’s future growth.
