Defined by Faith & Inspired by Ambition

We serve as a tool to leverage ideas and bring them into life.


The Mainstay Foundation is a 501(C)(3) service-oriented non-profit organization focused on strategic initiatives. The foundation was established in 2012 by a collective team of individuals who had the passion to work toward advancing the Muslim community in the United States of America. This team has served in a host of capacities, institutions, and organizations across the nation.

Mainstay, the term, is defined as “a very important part of something; something or someone that provides support and makes it possible for something to exist or succeed.” In order to build our community, we believe it is essential to organize as a collective, garnering our efforts and talents to help individuals grow and assist organizations in their development.


As individuals, families, and organizations, we all seek to do that noble thing. To do good. Yet, how can we do that more efficiently, productively, and in turn render the greatest impact and results? We must have a strategy and a way to bring all the pieces together. That is where we come in.

  • Ideas – building a foundation of thought through research and open dialogue

  • Organizations – assisting and empowering institutions

  • People – investing in the next generation

  • Communities – providing economic development and humanitarian aid

As an organization founded to advance and develop the individuals and organizations of our community, we pride ourselves in serving others with a strategic vision. We invite you to learn more about our work and assure you that you will find it worthy of your support.


To foster and facilitate growth and progress in the Muslim Community in the United States by advancing individuals, developing organizations, and building the community.
To be proactive leaders in community building and development by being the team that focuses on planning and executing strategic initiatives that can advance the interests of the Muslim Community on all levels.

To effectively coordinate the human and financial resources in the national community to execute necessary initiatives in specific focus areas that will advance the interests of the Muslim Community in the United States of America.


What defines and drives our work are the principles of our faith, which are encompassed in understanding the meaning of the Oneness of God, as taught to us by the Holy Quran and the Immaculates.
We understand that our work must be based on ideas that stem from the Islamic seminaries and scholars who provide us with the intellectual framework, which serves as the root of all of our work.
Our commitment is to God first and foremost, and then to the Prophet and his Holy Household who are our role models and guide.
One of the pillars of our teamwork is to trust in each other on all levels.
We believe that if we want to progress and advance, we have to continue to be ambitious and never to be complacent or content with any accomplishment.
