The deadline for submitting a fundraising request is March 25, 2020.  ICBR will send a notice via email to all applicants by April 3, 2020. Approved organizations will be notified with the visit date in the email body. Preference is given to Muslim umbrella organizations, Civil Right, Humanitarian & Relief organizations.  Islamic Centers are only considered if they agree to do a swap; allowing ICBR to conduct a fundraiser in their Masjid.

ICBR guidelines for conducting mini fundraiser during Ramadan 1441:

  • Isha Prayer starts at 9:45 pm end takes about 10 min.  Fundraiser has about 15 min to give a short talk, introduce the organization, make an appeal and raise funds.
  • Fundraiser needs to stand immediately after the Imam finishes the Isha prayer and prior for the congregation starting the Nafila
  • Should the fundraiser goes beyond 10:15pm, this will disqualify the visiting organization and speaker from conducting future appeals at ICBR.
  • We recommend the speaker to be present for Maghrib prayer and Iftaar to network with the community and to set up a table at the Masjid lobby with flyers and pledge forms. ICBR will provide a 6ft table.
  • Speaker should coordinate with the ICBR Director to have some volunteers assist with passing and collecting pledges.  If needed ICBR can provide pens.
  • The talk & appeal must be mainly in English and the speaker MUST avoid political and controversial topics.
