At the Mohamed S. Farsi Foundation (MSFF) we envision a world of equal opportunity and prosperity. Our aim is to support dynamic charities and social enterprises that can see and build a path to positive social and environmental change.
Hani S. Farsi created the MSFF to honour the work and charitable commitments of his Father, Mohamed S. Farsi. Since the Foundation’s launch, Hani and his fellow Trustees have been committed to funding dynamic and effective charities and social enterprises around the world. Every organisation that the Foundation supports works in at least one of our programmatic focus areas: healthcare, education, international development, and arts & culture.

In 2014, after five years of grant making, the MSFF went through a strategic review process. As a direct result of this review, the Foundation’s Trustees decided to channel all funding through three new programmes: Trustee Awards, Strategic Partnerships, and Arab Women Filmmakers. Through these programmes, the Foundation will continue to support a mix of charities and social enterprises striving to make our world a better, and more just, place for all of us.
The MSFF is funded by a portion of the profits of Hani Farsi’s personal and business investments, all of which operate on benevolent entrepreneurial principles. The Foundation has a strict policy of inclusiveness and does not fund organisations that discriminate in any manner. At this time, MSFF is only considering applications from organisations known to the Foundation, and will not accept unsolicited requests for funding.
