Community Jameel advances science and learning for communities to thrive.

An independent, global organisation, Community Jameel launched in 2003 to continue the tradition of philanthropy and community service established by the Jameel family of Saudi Arabia in 1945.

We support scientists, humanitarians, technologists and creatives to understand and address pressing human challenges. The work enabled and supported by Community Jameel has led to significant breakthroughs, including the MIT Jameel Clinic's discovery of the new antibiotics halicin and abaucin, critical modelling of the spread of COVID-19 conducted by the Jameel Institute at Imperial College London, and a Nobel Prize-winning experimental approach to alleviating global poverty championed by the co-founders of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL).

Community Jameel is separate and distinct from Community Jameel Saudi, a civil society organisation registered with number 59 with the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

A tradition since 1945

In 2020, the Jameel family marked 75 years of business and philanthropy by committing to advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. For more about the past 75 years, and the family's vision for the future, visit jameel75.com.
