Giving is Rewarding

The Rabbani Trust was created to address a number of charitable needs. Eshraghi and Mahmoud Rabbani, life-long members of the Bahá’í Faith, had a vision. They wanted to help people of all faiths and creeds. In keeping with their shared belief in the universal Bahá’í spiritual teachings of unity and the oneness of human-kind, the Rabbanis established, before they passed on, a basic plan to make their living trust a vehicle of good works and service.

The Rabbani Charitable Trust is a nonprofit, tax exempt entity, raising and disbursing funds for charitable, religious, literary and educational purposes, to promote the spiritual and social well being of the entire human race.

Without restrictions as to race, religion, sex or national identity, the Trust provides funds for worthy projects which will benefit humanity at the local and national level.

According to the terms of the Trust Agreement, which became effective January 25, 1991, the approved purposes for Trust distributions are:

  • Homes for the aged and needy;

  • Archives of Bahá’í books, documents and other materials;

  • Schools;

  • Bahá’í conferences;

  • Medical clinics;

  • Dental clinics;

  • Mental health clinics;

  • Medical research centers;

  • Hospitals;

  • For the relief or benefit of the disabled or unemployed persons residing in the United States or anywhere in the world.

The Trust is still in its early development stages. The first approved purpose of the Trust is currently being carried out by providing housing for low and moderate income families. In addition, the Trust also makes regular contributions to Bahá’í institutions and allocates monies for other major projects. Until early 2013, this included its acclaimed annual Bahá’í Conference on Social and Economic Development (which later became known as the Rabbani Trust Baha'i Conference in Orlando).

The Rabbani Charitable Trust is recognized as a public charity under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Contributions are deductible for federal income tax purposes under Internal Revenue Code Section 170(c)(2).
