Our annual gift guide highlights the activities of our grantees and partners, and provides suggestions for gifts that go a bit further this holiday season.

1) Subscription to Mizna’s award-winning literary journal:


The Mizna literary journal is the premiere collection of original writing from Arab American artists. Mizna is an organization devoted to promoting Arab American culture, providing a forum for its expression, and giving voice to Arab Americans through literature and art. Featuring fiction, poetry, essays, interviews, and artwork dealing with Arab American concerns, each journal issue is carefully curated around a specific theme. A journal subscription makes a great gift for the discerning scholar of Arab American studies in your family!

2) Purchase an item from Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture:


Why not support the innovative Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture by shopping at their store? Al-Bustan teaches Arab arts, language and culture through a variety of media, and is consistently at the vanguard for engaging youth in diverse cultural programming. The website currently features an array of artist-designed graphic tees, notecards, and books. Check it out!

3) Sponsor a woman entrepreneur at the Arab American Family Support Center:


The Arab American Family Support Center facilitates a program that enables women to participate in a small cooperative and sell their handmade crafts in stores and on their website. Help a woman lead her family out of poverty by making a tax-deductible contribution toward the purchase of materials needed to start her small business.

We hope this inspires you to learn more about our grantees, or consider contributing to a nonprofit that captures your philanthropic imagination this holiday season!

P.S. A Membership at our partner institution, the Arab American National Museum (AANM), provides several benefits beyond free admission. The AANM is the first and only museum in the United States devoted to Arab American history and culture. Become an AANM Member by clicking here!
