Making a Difference 

Uplift Charity is organized and created by Muslims committed to improving the lives of the most dependent members of the local community.  We seek to assist those in need by empowering them with the tools, support and resources necessary to impact their long-term success and improve their socioeconomic status.

Our goal goes beyond simply being a source of funds for the underprivileged.  We strive to assist in such a way that a struggling family no longer needs short-term assistance and instead gain the ability to sustain itself and prosper on its own strength.

Uplift Charity is committed to making a difference and being a vehicle to enlist those in the community who are like-minded and who strive to make a real difference with their time and/or resources. At Uplift Charity, we understand that helping the underprivileged segment of society is the responsibility of the local community and that our best effort today will lead to a better tomorrow.
