Description and impact

Maadi Community Foundation aims at reviving and modernizing the concept of endowment as a means for encouraging sustainable non-governmental financing and development in Egypt. Civil society's heritage in Egypt is deep-rooted and in order to begin and support development efforts that befit our time and are models for today's civil foundations we must utilize an old concept, the waqf endowment, so it is a channel to mobilize direct domestic resources towards sustainable development.
