Our New Partnership

21 December 2015

Dear friends,


We are so excited to announce that we have partnered with the Center for Arab American Philanthropy (CAAP) in Dearborn, Michigan.  Similar to the Dalia Association, CAAP aims to promote philanthropy amongst its constituents.  One of our long time extremely dedicated donors (who asked not to be named) initiated a fund at CAAP for the Dalia Association.
