Kopernik is a nonprofit organization connecting simple technology with last mile communities to reduce poverty. We recently completed a project with them to  improve health and safety for pregnant mother in East India.

Love Water​
​Love-Water is a 501c3 that exists to provide access to clean water in order to restore health and create opportunity in global communities.  We funded the drilling of a well for the Chamvu School in Mnjale Village in Malawi, a location which now provides 840 students and >2000 villagers with access to clean water.

We're working closely with RainCatcher and their executive leadership team to build our second project in Uganda. With RainCatcher, we're directly involved with the project execution, and have a clear understanding of the benefits we're providing to the local school. 

Rotary Club of Beverly Hills
Our first project in Myanmar was in close collaboration with the Rotary Club of Beverly Hills. Our working relationship with the Rotary Club has enabled direct involvement and accountability for the project.

Syrian American Medical Society Foundation
The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) is a nonpolitical, nonprofit medical relief organization that is working on the front lines of crisis relief in Syria and neighboring countries to alleviate suffering and save lives through medical relief work.  We are currently working to provide equipment and supplies to the new clinic being built in the Al-Zaatari Camp in northern Jordan, which will provide care to the 80,000 refugees residing in that camp with an average of 7,200 consultations per month.  

Tiyya Foundation

Tiyya works to ​provide community support and educational opportunities for refugees, immigrants, and displaced American families from any country or religious background who reside in Orange County and Los Angeles.  We are in our second year of collaboration to fund The Annual Back to School Celebration, providing free school supplies and backpacks to children of refugee families.

Project PArtners


The fundamental principles of our faiths, the Five Pillars of Islam and the Five Books of Moses, direct us to repair the world. We are turning our belief in these principles into action by identifying and funding projects throughout the global community. 

Our goal is to assist people in need, regardless of their faith, in the critical areas of clean water, education and healthcare.

mission & vision

The MAJOR Fund is a unique partnership and alliance of Jews and Muslims; a close collaborative relationship of people from different faith backgrounds. 

Our two-fold mission is to increase our sense of community locally and share that community through our global humanitarian projects.

Be a part of meeting the world’s greatest needs with your greatest gifts.

                               – Ret. Reverend Ed Bacon

The founding members of MAJOR came together through their participation in a NewGround Fellowship. NewGround (A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change) works to create a world in which trust and partnership replace the current atmosphere of mutual suspicion among Muslims and Jews. This is accomplished by equipping Muslims and Jews in America with the skills, resources, and relationships needed to improve cooperation on issues of shared concern.

A little about them: RAYAN is not only a clothing line, it is a lifestyle. As such, they have always believed that the value of giving is truly more rewarding and satisfying than receiving. For them, giving generously and compassionately gives life purpose and makes it all worthwhile. More info at shoprayan.com
