The Coexist Foundation (stylized Coexist) is a charitable organization based in Washington, D.C. and London, United Kingdom, which aims to advance social cohesion through education and innovation.

It was founded in London in 2006 by Mohammed Abdul Latif Jameel, to promote better understanding among Jews, Christians, and Muslims through education, dialogue, and research.[1][2][3][4][5]

Coexist had a not-for-profit relationship with The Gallup Organization.[6]

One of the Foundation's projects was "Understanding Islam" a first series of internet learning resources designed to give an accessible but thorough introduction to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Coexist joined with online education specialists Microbooks and a team of scholars to develop the series.[7]

The organization's logo is the Coexist sign, originally created in 2000 by Polish graphic designer Piotr Młodożeniec [pl] for a contest hosted by The Museum on the Seam for Dialogue, Understanding and Coexistence in Jerusalem.[8][9]
