As a charity, we rely on the support of many – the community, institutions and businesses, artists and arts organisations, and friends - to raise funds and do our work. The change you will help create is one of empowering British Muslim communities to tell their stories creatively and with confidence, and of changing negative narratives about Muslims.
You will also support Amal to make systemic change by transforming the arts and cultural sector to one that is much more representative and inclusive of Muslims. Your donation will make a world of difference and allow us to grow this important work now and in the future.
Your donation will allow Amal to work towards addressing a root cause of discrimination that adversely affects all Muslims in the UK. This is a dominant narrative that is negative, stereotyping, and monolithic. It is your contribution that will help us continue our vital work in shifting the narrative to one that is confident, diverse, and just.
Your monthly support will help more people to increase their confidence and sense of belonging, to experience art and cultural activities and to gain opportunities for employment. Your donation can be spread out over the year if you set it up on a monthly basis. As a result, you will remain connected to the work we do and our unique impact.
Your friends, family and their networks can support your mission by donating to help you reach your target commitment through a crowdfunding appeal you can set up on LaunchGood. Whether it is for an Amal project, one of its hub locations or to help us Change the Narrative, we encourage you to get creative when it comes to fundraising for Amal.
At the heart of Amal are our supporters. The key to unlocking social change in the UK is the commitment and persistence of many. We welcome major donors and philanthropists who are determined to Change the Narrative affecting British Muslims. As a major supporter, you will receive regular updates on our work in the form of reports and news and invitations to special events.
With the support of trusts and foundations, we've developed new ideas and tested effective solutions to the challenges we're addressing. Our vision for change would have not been possible without these fundings. Our Amal Connects programme receives transformational funding from the Saïd Foundation, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation.
Your company can make a significant contribution to promoting Muslim creativity, positive stories and an arts sector that fully includes and represents Muslims. There are many ways for your business and its employees to get involved. To create a strategically aligned partnership that works for your company or corporate network, please contact our Fundraising Team to learn more.
If you are a British Muslim community leader, an Imam, a mosque trustee, or an organisation that provides assistance to British Muslims, please let us know. We strive to maximise the impact of our work and ensure that the discrimination surrounding all British Muslims is addressed. If you would like to learn more about Amal's work and see how you can support and contribute, we’d be delighted to meet and discuss this further.
Contact us if you would like to be a part of the work we do. Our events are made possible by volunteers and we are deeply grateful for any assistance and time given. This could be supporting our Community Engagement Managers in Bradford or Birmingham at workshops or events, or supporting our core team with administrative and communications work.
Are you an artist, community group or arts and cultural organisation?
As a Muslim artist, community group or grassroots or mainstream arts and cultural organisation, we would be delighted to hear from you. Your contribution is what makes our work possible. Our Network includes hundreds of individuals and organisations from the arts and cultural sectors. There are a number of ways we can work together, including facilitating workshops or integrating arts and culture activities into your community group. The only criteria for joining the Amal community are a commitment to tackling structural inequality in our society and a belief that the arts have a role to play in achieving this change.
