Violet Jabara Charitable Trust
The Violet Jabara Charitable Trust provides support to improve the lives of the people in developing countries of the Middle East and to foster greater understanding of Middle Eastern culture in the United States. The Trust makes grants to organizations which work in developing countries in the Middle East, including Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Palestine (Occupied Territories), Yemen, Egypt, and North Africa. Countries further afield, such as the Gulf countries, Sudan, or Afghanistan, may be considered, but will not be given priority (Given the precarious political state of many of these countries, and U.S. Government guidelines in regard to global grantmaking, it may not always be possible to work with or in all of these countries.)
Within this geographic focus, the Trust welcomes innovative ideas in the fields of international economic development including, but not limited to, health, environmental issues, peace initiatives, microfinance, social entrepreneurship, and education, as well as all aspects of reproductive health and women’s welfare. The Trust also makes grants to U.S. organizations which promote deeper understanding of Middle East issues and culture in the United States.
U.S. and foreign nonprofit organizations may apply. Letters of inquiry may be submitted at any time.
