The Authority of Social Contribution

The Authority will deliver solutions

For social challenges with five main pillars of work – a Social Investment Fund, a Social Incubator, Outreach Management, Community Engagement Programs and the introduction of a new type of public contracting, Social Impact Bonds.


Ma’an will support the third sector to flourish in Abu Dhabi

Enabling responsible not for profit associations or foundations and social enterprises to contribute to the development of strong, active and connected communities.


The Authority is a ‘Ghadan 21’ accelerator program initiative

How can Maan help you be the change-maker?

Ma’an is based on the founding principle by working together we can achieve more than the sum of our parts. Every day across Abu Dhabi there are individuals, communities and organizations helping people to overcome social challenges. Imagine how much more impact we could make if we put all of those individual efforts together.
