Dear Brothers & Sisters in Islam,

Assalamu alaikum.

We are writing to you to ask for your support of Al-Ilm Educational Institute. Every year we embark upon various fundraising campaigns. It is through our collective efforts that we have been able to raise funds for many Al-Ilm programs and projects, most recently, the update of our Girls’ Middle & High school section to accommodate the increased number of students who choose to attend our full time program. As a community, we recognize that giving back to our school starts the day we enter this Al-Ilm campus and it is through these actions that we understand the importance of compassion and generosity.  

We are constantly growing and looking for ways to improve our Islamic institution.  Therefore, our newest project will be the expansion of our preschool, along with the addition of a new toddler program!  This is a large project that will allow our Muslim community to enroll their children at our school as early as two years old! We want to ensure that we can meet the needs of our growing Muslim community.  Included in this project is the addition of a formal, on campus playground.  Furthermore, we will be adding two more classrooms, along with the necessary bathroom facilities, drinking fountains, napping area, etc., to accommodate our preschool & toddler students.  Since we are rapidly growing, another project will be the addition of another computer lab.  Building our technology is a priority; and adding an additional computer lab will ensure that all our students have monitored access to a multitude of computer resources.

Our school tries to keep tuition affordable so that Al-Ilm is accessible to as many qualified students as possible. Because the tuition is less than the actual cost of education, we rely on many fundraising events to make up the shortfall. The money we raise goes directly to a wide variety of programs, equipment, and services. Even with charging less than the true cost of education, 25% of our students receive financial aid. This fundraiser helps to offset some of the burden and maintain a well-rounded and enriched student body.

Through this Power of 10 pledge campaign, our goal is have 1000 people each donate $10 per month so that we can reach our goal of raising $100,000 this year!

Thank you for your consideration. Your gift will help our students continue to receive the wonderful education and experiences here at Al-Ilm.

The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing. (2:261)
