The Alavi Foundation dispersed a $25,000 grant today to the Al-Khoei Benevolent Foundation. The Al-Khoei Benevolent Foundation accounts for perhaps one of the largest Islamic Centers in New York.
The Financial Aid Program for helping Islamic Organizations was initiated in 1986. Alavi Foundation has helped over 36 Islamic centers and continues to support Islamic centers, which are established, managed and used by local Muslim communities throughout the United States. The Foundation recognizes that such local centers are vital in providing cultural and religious services to the respected communities.
