The activation of the General Authority for Awqaf coincided with an ambitious vision and a promising outlook for a bright future for this blessed country. Throughout history, endowments have played an important and active role in the field of economic and social development and contributed to meeting the development needs in various fields. Endowments have received unlimited support since the foundation of this blessed country, by the founder King Abdulaziz, may God rest his soul, who took great care of endowments, and since then, endowments have had a great share of attention from the leaders of this country, may God protect them, as the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the Crown Prince, may God preserve them, granted the endowments exceptional care, attention, and unlimited support, which contributed to the development of endowments, and strengthened their role in economic and social development.
The Authority looks forward, God willing, to being the main driver of the endowment sector and its development, increasing its contribution to the development and achieving the objectives of the Kingdom Vision 2030 for the non-profit sector. Through an ambitious strategy and active partnerships, the Authority will work on organizing this sector, enhancing its role, and raise its contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), in order to achieve sustainable development.
