Community Grantmaking Fund

We are strengthening Arab American nonprofit organizations.

CAAP’s Community Impact Fund was established in 2010 in order to invest in Arab American nonprofit organizations across the country by providing general operating support. This type of support enables our grantees to cover costs where needed most that are not generally supported by program-specific grants. Grants made from this fund are subject to the approval of the CAAP Advisory Board.

Through this fund, CAAP has supported a variety of Arab American nonprofit organizations with nearly $800,000 in funding

including organizations that provide human services, serve women and children, promote arts and culture, or advocate on behalf of marginalized communities. By approaching Arab American nonprofits as a sector, we are raising the visibility of the needs of our community through grantmaking.

Give to This Fund

During our last grantmaking cycle, we were able to grant $155,000 to 23 Arab American organizations, in collaboration with the National Network for Arab American Communities 

CAAP and the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) awarded $130,000 in general operating support to Arab American organizations across the country, and CAAP also distributed an additional $25,000 to institutions to provide emergency relief to refugee and immigrant families.
