Building Collaboration Using the Community Collaboration Initiative Model: A Case Study of Muslim-Led Nonprofits
Journal of Public Affairs Education
This case study examines three nonprofit leaders’ (Shariq Siddiqui, Roohi Younus and Dilnaz Waraich) attempt to bring together Muslim nonprofit leaders and help them build meaningful collaborations. They kickstarted the Community Collaboration Initiative (CCI), an initiative that uses third-party facilitation to build collaboration among Muslim nonprofit organizations and to educate foundations and donors about the challenges Muslim organizations face in the United States. It serves as an educational resource to examine (1) the collaboration process, (2) trust-building during collaboration, and (3) the challenges of building collaboration. This case study also provides a resource needed to make Muslim-American organizations more visible in nonprofit and public affairs courses, as well as introduce culturally competent funding for nonprofit organizations that is relevant to students planning to work in foundations and related areas.
