Mohamed has been at Grantbook since 2018, advising organizations on their business strategy, service delivery, and digital transformation. Grounded in human-centred design, Mohamed enjoys working with grantmakers through navigating complex problems, unlocking innovation, and embracing the art of the possible.
A former nonprofit executive, Mohamed has led an advocacy organization to develop Canada’s first national reading strategy, a research institute combating Islamophobia, and a frontline social service agency that supports low-income communities. Having previously worked on the impact side of the sector, Mohamed is a strong advocate of trust-based philanthropy that strives to reimagine the traditional funder-grantee relationship.
As a consultant, Mohamed draws from his experience as both a funder and former grantee. He is currently a Board and Executive Committee member of the Inspirit Foundation, where he chairs the organization’s Equity Committee. He also serves on the Public Policy Committee of Philanthropic Foundations Canada, the largest association of Canadian grantmakers.
