For anyone who wants to go to sleep knowing that there charity is going to the right place through the right people should give through Zakat Foundation. I have been a volunteer and donor for years and can tell you that even napkins are accounted for, overhead is minimized and ZF uses its resources to get much needed funds to people on the inside of a crisis without fanfare.


May Allah continue to bless their work and use me to spread the word about them.

I'm one of the many volunteers at ZF and it has made a huge impact in my life. Besides the fact that its extremely fun to help out , just knowing that you're helping someone (whether they're thousands of miles away or right next door ) is an amazing feeling. Planting a garden for the local community, selling ice cream for orphans, or just having potlucks together , they're all reasons for the fact that ZF is like a second home for me and will always have a place in my heart.

In 2012, I was asked to perform at an event that ZF held..Not only was it moving and informative, the staff really stood out to me. I visited the main office about 6 months later and was impressed by the vibe of the office as well as the awards ZF has rec'd for money management and transparency with donors. Luckily, I accepted a position with ZF about 2 months ago and have had a consistently pleasant experience. The staff makes ZF what it is, from the ED and COE, to the program directors and coordinators. ZF staff strives to build a lasting relationship with donors, partners, and those who come in need. ZF programs are cost-effective and consist of immediate and sustainable goals. I recommend ZF to donors and volunteers.

I volunteered for several Zakat Foundation activities. They include food distribution to needy people, road cleanup, tutoring elementary school kids etc. I felt a part of the foundation and enjoyed what I have done. I feel that helping people and my community improved my view of life in a better fashion.

Thank you Zakat Foundation.

Zakat Foudation is a true nonprofit charity organization. Those organizers and volunteers are truly focused to real needs of each society and developed "working" applications to resolve the problems and satisfy the needs of needy.

Without any hesitation, I would volunteer with them at any time at anywhere. May Allah bless them all and expand their efforts to reach billions.

Thank you Zakat Foundation.

My children have immensely benefited from the numerous zakat foundation programs. Tutoring, rescue rangers, rain barrel project, bake sales for relief work, gardening at the food bank of DE to name a few. These programs have boosted their self confidence and has given them a sense of community. The foundation's volunteering program that includes kids, youth and adults, help in instilling selflessness and caring for others. It is a Great organization! Keep up the good work ZF!
