Alhamduillah, we raised $340,000 during our Annual Fundraising Dinner and Ramadhan Campaign. We are still short $270,000 (for outreach, operation/maintenance, and education).
It takes generous individuals from our beloved community at large to bridge that annual deficit and to help keep the Muslim Educational Trust engaged. There is nothing better than you, MET believers, helping the American Muslim community positively integrate.
