About the Rabbani Charitable Trust
The Eshraghieh and Mahmoud Rabbani
Charitable Trust is a nonprofit, tax-exempt public charity established to
raise and disburse funds for charitable, religious, literary and
educational purposes to promote the spiritual and social well being of the
whole of humanity.
Dr. and Mrs. Rabbani, who were long time, devoted members of the Bahá'í
Faith, established this Bahá'í-inspired trust to serve as a vehicle of
good works and service. While the Rabbani Charitable Trust is still in a
relatively early development stage, it has become best known for its
initiatives in the field of Bahá'í-related social and economic
development. The Trust provided key support, early in their development
stages, to Mottahedeh Development Services, the social and economic
development arm of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of the
United States; and the Magdalene Carney Bahá'í Institute, a Regional
Training Institute in Florida. In addition, from 1993-2012 it sponsored,
organized and conducted the well-known and acclaimed Bahá'í Conference on
Social and Economic Development (SED) in Orlando, Florida, each December.
In early 2012, this Conference underwent a name change, to the Rabbani
Trust Baha'i Conference in Orlando, and in early 2013, it was decided that
the Conference should cease.
