United Muslim Appeal

CAMP is planning to launch the United Muslim Appeal (UMA).  UMA brings together Muslim American registered 501C3 organizations (not including Islamic centers or schools) that have a budget of less than $1,000,000.  UMA coordinates a joint mailing to a list of Muslim Americans donors.  Donors are educated about the partnering charities and select the charity that best reflects their interest.  Donors who do not select a charity can give the funds to UMA.  UMA will then distribute the funds to partnering charities based upon specific grant requests.  The costs of the mailing and fundraising campaign are shared by the charities in proportion to the funds allocated to them by donors.  UMA will utilize state of the art fundraising theory and techniques to raise money for these small charities.
