The Arab Foundations Forum (AFF) was established out of the need for a networking structure for foundations in the Arab region to strengthen the capacity and infrastructure of strategic philanthropy. Currently, the Forum provides a platform for dialogue among various foundations in the region as well as the rest of the world. It serves as an advocate for more effective principles, practices, programs and policies. Its initiatives also include bringing philanthropists together to share information, learn from, and support one another to reinforce social development through mobilizing private capital for public benefit. In a long term perspective, AFF's goal is to strengthen the Arab philanthropy by providing Arab funders with an association of foundations in the Arab region to foster dialogue, network, learn and collaborate among themselves and with partners.

The College, which educated Middle Eastern women for half a century, became coed in 1973. In order to honor the college's unique heritage, the Institute for Women's Studies in the Arab World was established that year.
