Uplift Charity was founded in the summer of 2006 by four concerned individuals determined to make a significant difference in the lives of the less fortunate and underprivileged Muslims in California. Uplift Charity is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, with the sole purpose of assisting those in need and helping them gain the ability to be self sufficient.
Our focus is to work with some of the most vulnerable members of our local community, specifically those who have recently migrated with little or no support network; those who are without employment and seek it; the Muslims who live without shelter, food, and basic living essentials; children in need,; physically abused elderly, divorced and widowed,; recent converts to Islam who need community support; as well as other disadvantaged segments of our community.
In addition, Uplift Charity is an organization beyond simply collecting funds and resources; we encourage all members of the community to take part in supporting our brothers and sisters through volunteerism as well. By volunteering time and resources, we as a community, can build on the solidarity that we so desperately are in need of.
At Uplift Charity, we understand that helping the underprivileged segment of the society is the responsibility of the local community and that our best effort today will lead to a better tomorrow.
