Ramadan & Eid Fund

The Ramadan & Eid Fund promotes Muslim fellowship on campus principally during Ramadan. Most donations are made to the Fund during the Iftaar Sponsorship Campaign, though the Fund is open for donations year-round. Activities supported by the Fund include iftaars, financing of visiting haafiz to lead taraweeh prayers, Ramadan contests, and events during Eid al-Fitr as well as Eid al-Adha.

Why Give?

With generations of successful Muslim alumni, the Ramadan & Eid Fund seeks to help students capture the magic of Ramadan and inspire the vibrant togetherness that we all know is possible.
