Using donations from non-Muslims for masjids and madrasahs

Q: Is it permissible to receive funding as a donation from non-Muslims as asked for by a masjid and madrassah? Where should it be utilised?

A: As far as possible don't accept donations from non-Muslims. Can you explain the reason why the non-Muslims wish to contribute to an Islamic deeni project.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
