It is critical for Muslim American philanthropy that we engage in research to evaluate our past activities and determine potential impact for the future. CAMP is committed to establishing the following research based programs:
Journal on Muslim Philanthropy and Civil Society
The Journal will be a peer reviewed quarterly online open access journal. CAMP is partnering with the Indiana University Payton Philanthropic Studies Library to establish this critical journal.
CAMP is committed to provide annual research grants in the area of Muslim American philanthropy. These research grants will be available to faculty and graduate students interested in doing research on this critical topic.
Symposium on Muslim Philanthropy
CAMP will host an annual Symposium on Muslim Philanthropy. The Symposium will invite 8 – 10 scholars who will present their research on Muslim American philanthropy and civil society. The symposium will also include a public event to coincide with the Association of Muslim Nonprofit Professional Annual Conference to provide a summary of research and its implications for the sector.
Muslim American Philanthropy Collections
CAMP is partnering with the Indiana University Payton Philanthropic Library Special Collections to establish a Muslim American Philanthropy Collection. The Collection will include archival material of Muslim American nonprofit organizations, key Muslim American leaders and philanthropists and other critical aspects of Muslim American philanthropy and civil society. The materials will be available for scholars to conduct primary source research on Muslim American civil society. The Collection already includes archival material of the Islamic Society of North America.
