Diyanet Silicon Valley Requests Your Generous Support in Establishing the First
Masjid in Redwood City, CA
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are very happy to announce that, Alhamdulillah, we have closed the escrow and acquired the property! We need to do some renovations. We currently do not have an opening date for the center. As soon as we know for sure, we will announce it InshaAllah.
We estimate that the renovation will cost $100,000. Your donations for the renovation will be greatly appreciated. We thank all who have helped us in acquiring the property.
May Allah SWT reward you all immensely!
We collected $1.2M in donations. Thanks to those who gave us generous qard-e hasana (interest-free) loan, we were able to purchase the property without financing from an institution. However, we need to pay that $600K qard-e hasana loan back by Dec 1, 2022. Thus, we are still collecting funds to raise that amount. Please donate in any way and in any amount you can by clicking on the “Donate Now” button below. We're also accepting qard-e hasana loans that are payable in 2+ years with Promissory Notes.
If you have any questions, please contact us:
May Allah accept all your generous donations. Amin.
All your donations are tax-deductible. Tax ID (EIN = 13-4194912)
