Greensville Trust is a UK based educational charity that aims to nurture holistic faith- based communities which have at their heart prophetic institutions that are underpinned by the principles of sincerity, excellence and education rooted in transformative practice.

  Olive Mount is intended as a sanctuary of serenity and security for the faithful that reflects and compliments the wholeness and order of the heavens and the earthly beauty of the natural order. The project involves the acquisition and development of a city-based mosque campus that is mirrored rurally, in the natural environment; as a means of giving life to the broader prophetic teaching of the mosque as a crucible for holistic living and worship.

The challenge is to inspire our supporters to join hands with us, in piety and taqwā, to raise in excess of a million pounds to help in the establishment of Olive Mount. We require a minimum of a one hundred souls to commit to raising a micro-minimum of £10k as a means of reaching the macro-minimum of a million pounds. By rising to the challenge, you will be required to achieve this by the 15th of Sha ‘bān, Laylatu’l-Barā’ah, 1442.

  The current donor schemes, whilst being successful, they fall considerably short of the initial milestone figure of £5m that is needed to purchase the physical sites and establish the first phase of Olive Mount. The Million Pound Challenge will allow us to collectively fast track this purchase with a structured plan and a personally achievable target.

Raising £10,000 is really achievable if you are granted the tawfīq to put your mind to it. With a modicum of creativity and industry, you will be able to reach your fundraising target with ease, inshā’ Allāh!
