Aga Khan Foundation USA (AKF USA), an American global development agency, has worked with Americans and American institutions for 40 years to improve the quality of life of millions of people in some of the most remote and hard-to-reach parts of Asia and Africa and to build a more peaceful, prosperous, and pluralist world for all. In addition to major institutional funding partnerships, AKF USA has successfully raised funds from individual Americans through a broad range of events, digital initiatives, and major and planned/legacy gifts to support the ground-breaking global development efforts of the Aga Khan Development Network.
The need to ensure a thriving quality of life for all the world’s people has always been an ethical imperative, but recent events, including the global pandemic, have made its urgency and necessity to secure our collective welfare overwhelmingly clear. The good news is that Americans have always understood and even embraced their role and responsibility as members of a global community and the opportunity to build on their historic support to AKF USA has never been greater. As part of the global Aga Khan Development Network – one of the world’s largest non-governmental development organizations – AKF USA is uniquely positioned to continue its track record of working with Americans to create a better world for all.
