Mercy Mission UK is a key incubator that has delivered strong and successful projects for society at large over the last decade. Since 2019, we have moved our primary focus from internal incubation to a venture philanthropy approach. At the very heart of our new approach is a community endowment, which we are confident will, over the long term, deliver more stable and sustainable financing for our work.
Endowment has long been a keystone of Islamic civil society development. From the very first true endowment established by the Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Uthman ibn Affan, Islamic civilisations have flourished through the utilisation of endowment structures.
Mercy Mission UK - today stands committed to revive this tradition with its own endowment in the United Kingdom to serve the needs of the community. We are firm in our belief that a stronger Muslim community, makes for a stronger civil society. The better our performance on social indices, the stronger the position from which to articulate and improve people’s understanding of who we really are and what we stand for. Faith has a unique ability to mature understanding and allow diverse communities to flourish and it is our desire to genuinely invest in making for a more compassionate, caring and understanding Britain.
