At Al Jalila Foundation the support we receive from the business community is integral and financial business partners like Gulf Islamic Investments (GII), a leading UAE-based Shari’ah-compliant financial services company, helps energise the work we do to transform lives in the UAE.
Financial institutions have the potential to be the backbone of charitable giving and we are grateful for Gulf Islamic Investments’ support who not only donate Zakat each year but also promote corporate social responsibility in unique ways.
Earlier this year GII launched Eureka GCC 2021 the first edition in Dubai fostering the spirit of entrepreneurship in the region. The 5-month long competition offered aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to design solid business models, gain mentorship from renowned VCs and angel investors and avail excellent networking opportunities and educational workshops.
GII opted to move from the traditional corporate gifting and made donations to support medical research and patient treatment on behalf of 60 jury, mentors and speakers of Eureka GCC 2021 and their names were engraved on Bassmat Rashid Bin Saeed donor recognition wall as a token of appreciation.
Our CEO Dr Abdulkareem Al Olama was delighted to welcome Mohammed Al Hassan and Pankaj Gupta Co-Founders and Co-CEOs to Al Jalila Foundation to engrave ‘Gulf Islamic Investments’ name on the donor wall marking our longstanding partnership and GII’s generous contributions.
