Northwest Dawah Foundation started out as Dawah NW in 2018 as a grassroots effort with the mission to establish a grassroots Dawah effort in Oregon and Southwest Washington in order to convey the message of Islam. In 2020, we transitioned from a grassroots group to the Northwest Dawah Foundation a religious non-profit corporation. Dawah NW continues to exist today as our General Dawah / Street Dawah Program. We’ve moved our Corrections Dawah effort into its own program called Companions of Yusuf and we’ve added NW Baitulmaal a Sadaqah (Charitable Assistance) program to help Muslims in the Pacific Northwest.
