Host an Educational Workshop or a Fundraiser to Support Believers Bail Out

Throughout the year, Believers Bail Out relies on your efforts to host two types of events in your mosques, universities, schools, and communities: 1. Educational workshops on money bail, and 2. Fundraisers to support believers who require money bail support. In Ramadan we ask that you host an Iftar in your community, the fast-breaking meal, in support of Believers Bail Out. If you would like to host an event but need planning support, please feel free to reach out to us at

Depending on the size and complexity of your event, you’ll want a few weeks to plan it, whether it requires a meal, a short talk, a video, or fundraising.

BBO provides presentation content and information to assist you in hosting an event. As an example of the content we provide, please view/download the “Sample Iftar Agenda and Invite” to the right, or download the full BBO Iftar toolkit below.

These events should have three main goals:

  1. Raise money to bail out Muslims who are being held in pretrial incarceration and immigration confinement without having been convicted of a crime

  2. Educate ourselves and our communities about money bail, mass incarceration, deportation, and their intersections with racism

  3. Lay the groundwork for future anti-racist work in our communities grounded in our religion and our faith
