The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, is like a grain which grows seven ears, in each ear hundred grains. And Allah multiplies it further for whomsoever He pleases and Allah is Bountiful, All-Knowing.
The Holy Qur’an 2:262
Crescent Community Champions is an initiative of the Crescent Foundation to supercharge our community’s champions with the generous support of Crescent Wealth.
With your help, we are looking to raise more than half a million dollars for our community organisations.
For each of the causes and champions listed, Crescent Wealth will provide up to $10,000 each upon raising $50,000 from the community and their supporters. Together, we are aiming to raise half a million dollars for these incredible initiatives with high impact.
To be a part of these high impact causes, all you have to do is go to their respective LaunchGood pages and provide your much needed support with whatever amount you can afford. Any amount is welcome and what matters is the intention.
Crescent Wealth, Crescent Foundation or Launchgood will not deduct any fees from the fund raise (other than those imposed by payment providers) and 100% of funds will go directly to the specific causes.

Building an Islamic centre for the children of Ashabul Kahfi
The Ashabul Kahfi Islamic Center is one of our fantastic community organisations that has served the Muslim community and specifically the Indonesian community for over 20 years. Many of the Australian Indonesian youth have graduated from Islamic studies programs facilitated at this centre. Funds need to be raised to support the construction of a purpose built Islamic centre at the property which is owned by the Center at Wiley Park.
Cooking for a cause with Brothers in Need
Brothers in Need has launched this campaign to continue providing nutritious meals to some of the most disadvantaged people in our local community. They do this by preparing and cooking freshly made meals and desserts in partnership with the Culinary School, located in Sydney, Australia. The teams then pack and distribute the delicious meals to those who would otherwise go without food. Alhamdulillah, the food packs give these brothers and sisters the opportunity to eat the equivalent of a home-cooked meal just like the rest of us.
Through this project, Brothers in Need are able to support people from the homeless community, those from low-income families, the unemployed, people from non-English speaking backgrounds, the elderly and refugees
Daily meals and schooling for a hundred children in refugee camps.
In the poorest countries in the world, there is only one thing on a child's mind: survival.
They beg or lay bricks for 10 hours a day, sweep and clean homes from morning till evening - all for a bowl of rice.
They will do this every day for the rest of their lives. They will not make enough to stay healthy. They will not build a better life. Their children will do the exact same thing.
Charity Right seeks to provide nutritious meals to children in refugee camps, enabling them to focus on what matters – their education and their only way out.
