Building A History of Social Change
Our competitive grantmaking programs allow us to make a real difference in communities, while raising awareness of Arab American charitable giving. By using our searchable database, you can view grants CAAP has made through our Community Grantmaking Fund, Empower Women and Children Fund, Disaster Relief Fund and Teen Grantmaking Initiative.
CAAP also processes grants made through donor-advised funds, but these are not included in the database. Grants are searchable by focus area and grantmaking fund.
