Thank you for a successful first fundraiser!

Thank you for a successful first fundraiser!

We are very grateful to everyone who joined us last night for our “Our Home, Our Dreams” fundraising dinner, those who made pledges beforehand and all those who contributed online. You helped us raise $280,000 out of our $400,000 current need, mashaa Allah! Thank you for your generous support and your well-wishes. We cannot express how much your support means to us.

We owe a special thanks to all our volunteers who did a phenomenal job in planning the entire event in under four weeks and with minimal cost, mashaa Allah.

Most importantly, we thank Allah Almighty for making the event a success and pray for ease, acceptance and forgiveness.

Thank you. May Allah bless you and please forgive us for any mistakes or shortcomings.

Please stay tuned for updates and developments regarding our project by following us on Facebook or at this blog.

Required studies under way

A zoning change is required in order for us to be able to use the property for our intended purposes. Work is under way to prepare the application, which requires a number of studies and reports to be completed. This week, markings were made on the ground to identify power and telephone lines, as required before digging. Soon, an engineering firm will be drilling a few holes in the ground to conduct geotechnical tests, for which markings have been put in. This will tell us what is under the property and it’ll make it easier to estimate costs for parking and storm water drainage.

First Fundraising Event Days Away

This is the first time we’re holding a fundraising dinner, so we’re working hard to get everything right. Our aim is to present our case clearly, so that donors are clear about where we’re at and what we aim to do. Honest communication, establishing trust, hard work and reliance on Allah Almighty are the keys to success for this project. Please remember us in your du’as.
