About the ADF

The American Druze Foundation (ADF) is proudly dedicated to the study, preservation, and celebration of Druze cultural heritage in America.

Cultural history shapes who we are and enriches our lives. The ADF celebrates Druze heritage by advancing a deeper understanding of the Druze Faith (also known as the Tawheed faith) and supporting the American Druze community through education, investments, and sociocultural projects and events.

The ADF was established and incorporated as a nonprofit in 1989 by a group of pioneer American Druze who saw what did not yet exist for their community. They dreamt of an organization that could help protect their community and culture for the long-term. They acted with determination and selflessness to create a new pillar for the Druze community in America.

The American Druze Foundation (ADF) mission is to advance a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Druze people while preserving Druze cultural heritage in the United States by researching, documenting, and disseminating information about Druze values, history, culture and Tawheed faith.

As part of this mission, the ADF is particularly interested in encouraging a greater awareness of Druze values and traditions among the younger generations of American Druze. More broadly, the ADF strives to promote understanding and goodwill between the Druze community in the United Sates and other cultural and religious groups in the United States and throughout the world.
