The Waqf Fund
The Waqf Fund was established in November 2006 under the auspices of the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) in partnership with Islamic Financial Institutions (IFIs) in Bahrain. Among the founding IFIs were Arcapita Bank, Bahrain Islamic Bank, Kuwait Finance House (Bahrain), AlBaraka Banking Group, Unicorn Investment Bank, ABC Islamic Bank, Shamil Bank (now Ithmaar Bank) and Gulf Finance House. The member institutions made one-time contributions to the Waqf Fund's corpus which is invested in Islamic money market instruments and the return is used to finance the Fund's initiatives. These initiatives are executed through partner organisations.
