Message from AKF USA CEO

As part of our Giving Tuesday and end of year giving season, we are thrilled to share the upcoming launch , featuring tales we can both relate to and marvel at. From Texas to Tanzania and Afghanistan to Maryland, we start with five stories:

“A Woman’s Place is Everywhere”

“We Aren’t in Maryland Anymore”

“The Mountain is Calling and I Must Go”

“Everything’s Bigger in Texas”

“The Most Powerful Weapon”

These stories of appreciation are written by those impacted by your donations. Thank you for caring and thank you for giving. We need you now more than ever. In this season of giving, support self-reliance and strength: Donate Now!

Our Matching Donors

We’d like to specially thank our Giving Tuesday matching donors who generously pledged to match up to $21,000 on our first day:

  • Zahara Alarakhia: “I support AKDN because of its determined commitment to the improved welfare of the most disadvantaged communities, including the support it provides to hundreds of volunteers globally.  I am grateful for AKDN’s programs and am hopeful we can all come together to build on the continued success of AKDN through the matching gifts.”
  • Irfan Dossani, CPA, PLLC: “We have been proud supporters of the Aga Khan Foundation for many years now.  We believe in the foundation’s work and philosophy.  AKF is a unique organization that goes beyond providing emergency help as a reactive measure, but it actually strives to proactively help communities with sustainable skills that will help them grow and prosper.  We believe that the work AKF does goes way beyond any other organization or country’s effort in helping our world become a healthy, happy, prosperous, educated and peaceful place.  It is also a huge plus to know that 100% of our donations are used toward the foundation’s work.  We hope that you will join us in our support of AKF.  Thank you!”
  • We’d also like to thank our two anonymous donors
