Rebuilding of Burnt Down Islamic Center of Lake Travis, Austin

Our Mosque was about to open in Ramadan. We lost everything that night in the fire... except Hope.

Islamic Center of Lake Travis is a Registered 501(c)(3), Tax ID 46-1022278.

In 2011, in response to local Steiner Ranch fires in Austin, the children of the Muslim community of the neighborhood began a campaign to collect funds for the affected families.  This was the impetus for starting The Islamic Center of Lake Travis for the benefit of the community, regardless of any affiliations. Five years later, with a heavy heart, the Islamic Center of Lake Travis regrets to inform you that we had a shocking incident of fire at the construction site late night/early morning hours of January 7th 2017. Unfortunately, the building is completely burned to the ground. At this time, authorities including Travis County Fire Marshall and US Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) is investigating the cause of the fire. We'll update the community on the outcome of this investigation once it is completed. May God give us strength, courage, and resilience to rebuild this center.

Our losses are estimated to be around $400,000 in the fire and we are hoping to recover that through this campaign.  Please join us in this effort to rebuild this center.  

This is a great loss to the Austin community and we pray that God keeps our community and city safe and blessed,

Thank you and God Bless,

Islamic Center of Lake Travis
