The Karam Foundation is one that is truly based with character and heart. It aims to seek better opportunities both in the short and long term for generations of displaced Syrians who are fleeing war, half of whom are women and children. Not only does it help refugees but includes them in their voice and implementation; This is hard to come by in the humanitarian and development sphere. It is unique but driven with passion.

Karam Foundation is the most beloved American charity actively supporting Syrian refugees. Their aid work is vital and their youth programs are both creative and engaging. When supporting this organization one gets the sense that they are investing in future growth rather than simply putting bandages on wounds.

With great confidence I nominate Karam Foundation for Top Rated Non-Profit award. Karam Foundation was founded 10 years ago with small teams but big dreams. Today Karam serve thousands of suffering refugees with great focus on education, eliminating both child labor and teen early marriage. Karam youth programs delivered innovative technological tools to refugee teens to help them navigate the future with confidence.

Rebuilding public services like the neighborhood ovens, medical supplies to hospitals, providing prosthetic limbs to children, it's all really helpful and it means a lot to many. Keep up the good work.

Karam makes helping the people of Syria a possibility for people who don't know where to begin – providing much needed medical support to field hospitals, food supplies to cut-off villages, and hope for those whose government has turned its back on them. There is no more admirable of an organization in my eyes and it deserves every bit of our support.

Karam is not an average charity. The person who founded it not only creates jobs in the community but went to Syria every once in a while to personally assist in the camps, armed with generous donations and clothing.
A great organization

I love the story telling part of the foundation. I think the content used to build up a story and a case for donating is very important. As a donor I want to be continuously updated and also have some discretion on how my donation is being spent. I think Karam balances this approach, while being able to scale up their fund raising efforts.

Karam Foundation is nothing less than perfection when choosing an organization to support. Their focus on providing people with the tools they need to continue to move forward is so important. When donating to Karam, I know that my donations will go to where Syrians need it most.

I know this organization does important work, and I am grateful for it. However, I made a donation over the holidays in honor of a friend of mine, and despite numerous requests, she has not been notified of this gift. I am repeatedly assured that she has been notified, and I ask for a copy of the acknowledgement letter. Nothing arrives. Now they have stopped answering my emails ('m sure they are tired of hearing from me.) So I would say absolutely support their important work. But if you are looking to make a gift in the name of someone else, and you want notification sent, this might not be the foundation to choose.
