Established in 2001 in DC - Giving back to the community and the fundamental belief in charity continues to be an essential and integral part of the El-Hibri family tradition. Proud of the legacy of charitable works by his family, in 2007, the late Mr. Ibrahim El-Hibri, made a substantial gift to the foundation to ensure that its beneficial work continues. Today, under the direction of his son, Fuad El-Hibri, the foundation seeks to help the less fortunate, bring about lasting change in interfaith understanding and global peace, and improve our world. It is in the tribute of Ibrahim El-Hibri’s memory and the great work he did that the headquarters building has been named in his honor
