Suhailah Waheed is a community centered fundraiser and organizer based out of Austin, Texas. She is originally from the multifaceted cultural hotspot of the American south, Durham, NC.
Suhailah, who is also a published poet, focuses her work on highlighting issues that suppress the quality of life for women, children, minority and Muslim communities. Her fundraising adventure blossomed in her youth when she began fundraising for her school and local Masjid. From there, she was drawn to illuminating experiences and possibilities through storytelling and fundraising.
This discovery is what led to her mission of backing her community in the most efficient way she could, through access to sustainable funding. She is the founder of the development agency, Giving Geeks, where she and her team create and steward sustainable funding strategies and solutions.
