I really want to donate few bucks for refugee children, or who needed most and used to donate monthly in Zakat.org. But lately found they are not *trust worthy* anymore and decrees their rank from that! Very shocked because as a middle class family and one income it is quite hard to donate money as we have to do budget for ourselves too in each month. However, for the shake of ALLAH SWT I want to do some *Sadaaqa*. I become saddened as I see that my children's money are not spending to the right place where the charities Org's should be. Allah watching everything and knows everything. Myself can not go to those places to help the needy but want to do Sadaqa for both helping and pleasing my Almighty but if Charities do not do their job, which make me very frustrated! May Allah show us to the right path ameen.

ZF (Zakat Foundation) is a great service to people who want their donations tracked and sent with transparency. Volunteering with them has given me so many opportunities and the staff is wonderful and helpful. If you are looking for a place to volunteer, Zakat Foundation is the place.

The Zakat Foundation helped me excel in my SAT studies. They also helped me in my college application process. Without them, I would not be able to be where I am today.

Beautiful work done by beautiful souls. Zakat Foundations people are the most selfless and humble people I've ever worked with. They help everyone no matter who, what, or where you came from.

I had been with Zakat Foundation of America for four and a half years. What I took from that experience is how much it developed me as a professional and as a human-being.

As someone that has made a career in Human Resources, I appreciated some of the human aspects of how staff were treated. I don't know if by design or naturally the organization took on the character of the founder but ZF is a family-first organization. It has put people and their families first. In a world where companies look at the bottom-line and treat people as cogs in a machine, ZF insightfully understands that people are people, which was my first-hand experience.

The staff at ZF are first-class as well. There is an incredible blend of highly talented people with big hearts. Their devotion to beneficiaries and the work itself is top-notch again taking on the character of the leaders of ZF.

If there is anything I am certain of, it is that Zakat Foundation of America has a bright future as long as they continue putting value in people.
