I've known and donated to this charity for about 20 years. One thing they have built is reputation and established themselves in the field of charity work, and for a long time were leading in terms of operational efficiency. Given their size, they are still doing pretty well with expenses unlike most of the highly advertised and known secular US charities (look them up on Charity Navigator).
Their established network of operation means you can be more assured they will get to places of need throughout the world. It is heart warming to see positive reviews by the volunteers because they help in reducing overhead of expenses by donating their time.
Beautifully executed. Trusted. Many Causes. Always aware of all causes not just one! Which keeps you motivated to help since its becoming so easy! and IR USA Makes it even Easier.

I volunteered with Islamic Relief during the months of October and November 2018 for their fundraising Event to Benefit the Children in Conflict Zones of Yemen, Syria, Palestine and Myanmar. I also volunteered for their 10k Meal Pack Out. Both experiences were the absolute best I have ever had with volunteering. As a Muslim it is my duty to help others in need and it was fun and well worth every minute I spent doing it and I would do it again if asked. I met some truly amazing people and made quite a few new friends along the way. Alhamdullilah.
Review from Guidestar
I used to be a big donor to IR USA until I found out they were fudging (inflating) their numbers to promote themselves as a big organization. I found out from an article ran by a reputable business journal and I started my own investigation. I have even contacted IR USA on several occasions to get a feedback from them but my calls went unanswered. I then decided to stop supporting them and not trusting them. Its too bad, they have managed to mislead a lot of people, but as the saying goes, fool me once shame on you; fool me twice shame on me.
Review from Guidestar
I'm on the mailing list for Islamic Relief USA and they always seem to be responding the quickest to disasters or emergencies around the world and they tell me what's happening if I can't check the news. As a humanitarian Muslim it's where I choose to donate, because it seems like they respond to needs almost everywhere. I also love the transparency of the organization and their overall values which I feel match my own. I'm definitely will be a long time supporter for years to come.
Amazing work with sincere and kind people! Working together for a better world is always your aim
It's awesome how they're working so hard to help the needy people around the world. May Allah (SWT) give u ajar for this!
I have been a long time supporter and have been a volunteer with IRUSA for almost a year. I have participated in relief and aid efforts that are local (2,000 food box pack-out for local families), national (rebuilding homes for flood victims in North Carolina) , and international (packed 10,000 meals for Uganda and a 120 mile charity bike ride in Turkey to raise funds for water wells in Africa). Every experience I have had with them has been first rate. The staff, events, and efforts are extremely organized, focused, professional, polite and courteous. Their operations are world class and they work with other world class organizations, both faith based and non faith based, to make things happen. There are no political affiliations, it’s just pure charity. They are there wherever there is crisis, wherever long term recovery is needed, and wherever there is need. Donation money is not squandered and is used effectively and my understanding is that more than 90% of donations goes towards projects with the remaining less than 10% towards administrative costs. That’s pretty good! I have met many amazing people, both staff and volunteers, through working with them. I actually wish I could participate more because of how positive the experiences are. Regardless of your faith, Islamic Relief is great charitable organization on all fronts and I highly recommend them to everyone looking for a charity to donate their time and/or to.
We joined IR USA for the cycling challenge in Turkey to raise funds for a borehole in Somalia. It was a really well organised tour. A detailed itinerary was provided before the tour and everything went really smoothly. There were police escorts, an ambulance and a support vehicle with the group at all times. We visited some historic sites in Turkey that otherwise I may never have visited. Finally we arrived in Istanbul and were also taken on a tour around the city. I found the volunteers and organisers from the different countries motivational and we all helped each other through the challenge. Even though we were all from different backgrounds and different pars of the world we were all there for the same reason hence had a common purpose.

I participated in a fundraising event with IR USA in Turkey, biking 155 km and raising funds for water projects for Chad and Mali. This was an incredible trip and event! IR USA clearly is a world class non-profit, organising engaging and rewarding fundraising events. I will definitely be planning an annual fundraising trip with them.
Recently I have been searching for top charities to donate to for the Tsunami and Earthquakes that hit Indonesia and to my surprise one of my favorite charities is one of the preferred charities to give to because of their boots on the ground.
Its great to see them distributing much needed aid whiten days of the disaster. Keep up the great work.
One of the best charities I know. The work I am seeing that they are doing in Greece helping the refugees is pretty amazing. Keep up the great work and thank you for the stories you guys are sharing
Recently I traveled on a team challenge with Islamic Relief and had the time of my life while raising money for needed projects to provide wells across countries in Africa.
Not only did I have an amazing time but knowing that we got to make a difference for people by providing clean water is rewarding.
Great Job Islamic Relief, this month you guys are helping in Myanmar, and the Hurricanes that hit the US and Caribbeans and the Earthquake in Mexico. I love how you hold true to your mission of providing relief and development in a dignified manner regardless of gender, race, or religion, and works to empower individuals in their communities and give them a voice in the world.
Keep up the amazing work
The Islamic Relief website is easy to use. I can see exactly where my donations are going to!! I love the blogs and social media posts! they are always active in different communities
Becoming a volunteer for IRUSA was the best decision I have ever made. It is a truly fun experience. The staff makes sure the events are organized which allow for the events to run smoothly and the guests always enjoy their time.
Special thanks to the IRUSA North East team and shout out to Sanat the most amazing Events coordinator!
Islamic Relief USA is a top tier non profit. All of their employees are incredibly motivated and dedicated to helping make the world a better place, and their events are so much fun both for attendees and volunteers alike!

They are an honor to work with and their work is and will continue to benefit millions in need.
