Grant Type: Capacity Building

Duration: Jan 1, 2019 - Dec 31, 2019

Organization Overview:

Muppies is committed to creating a diverse, global community of individuals who will support, challenge, and inspire one another to be leaders in their careers and communities. Muppies cultivates this by providing a platform for networking, mentorship, and career development.

Request Overview:

Building on 11 years of leadership development and networking, Muppies seeks to grow and strengthen its core operations in 2019 and work with partners who can better train and equip members to maximize their impact. This includes identifying organizational psychologists and executive coaches, creating a short video and webinar series for members, and hosting in-person events, with a focus on New York City where Muppies has more than 600 members. During this phase of Muppies’ development, the organization seeks to convert and formalize many of the programs and members services it has offered on a volunteer basis throughout its existence. Muppies is driven by the desire of its members to help each other, to lift each other up and to serve as ladders for one another so that the Muslim professional community can advance together, ultimately contributing to a greater understanding and engagement of Muslims into the broader global community.
