Zakat Foundation of America is, in my opinion, the most transparent and trustworthy humanitarian non-profit out there. The employees do their work with complete passion and care and the help being provided to regions across the world is sustainable and empowering, to say the least. Zakat Foundation has also been incredible at mobilizing the community to work on local service projects or fundraising initiatives to alleviate suffering abroad. It isn't just a non-profit, it's an institution through which service is redefined and reimagined.

It's important to me that a humanitarian organization focuses more on its work than creating expensive compensations for higher-ups. Zakat Foundation of America employees exceeded my expectations in telling me more than 90 percent of the organization's funds go directly toward the cause. This tells me that Zakat Foundation is wants to create a profound positive impact, and it tells me that the people who work there see it as more than "just a job."

I believe it's a lifestyle choice to give to others and be compassionate in one's time of need, and I believe Zakat Foundation embodies that lifestyle fully.

This is the perfect organization to donate to during the Ramadan season. Their humanitarian work is not concentrated in one region of the world and includes several programs (food, housing, education, healthcare). They are also fairly active in the United States in major cities like Chicago and Washington D.C.

I have volunteered at ZF for a long time now, through serving the community. I've had a great experience, as Zakat Foundation holds many events to serve the community, and is actively involved with multiple other organizations in the local Delaware community, from gardening at the Food Bank of Delaware, to cooking at the Ronald McDonald house, and distributing at the Hope Lutheran church in New Castle. There is so much to get involved in, and there's a great community too. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to give back!

I've volunteered with Zakat Foundation in Delaware for more than 2 years now, and it's a great place for people of all ages to get together and help the community. The Zakat Foundation Center in Delaware provides many services in-state and abroad, ranging from a wide variety of activities from tutoring to road cleaning and more. Everyone at the Zakat Foundation gets involved, and the friendly staff alongside the encouraging volunteers make you feel welcome. I strongly recommend Zakat Foundation if you want a well-rounded volunteer experience while making friends and learning new things everyday.

I've been involved with ZF for the past two years and it's been amazing to experience the impact they have on the ground. From delivering emergency relief overseas to supporting refugee communities in American cities, they are one of the world's leading Muslim NGO's. I can online imagine the growth of the organization in the coming years.

Zakat Foundation of America has always been my favorite nonprofit! I love attending their volunteer events that allow me to get a hands-on experience with their in-house programs. Their services and programs are always benefiting those who need the most aid. I am glad to see their most recent project in Texas, providing emergency relief after the flooding. Great job, ZF!

I had a great time with this organization! We did monthly feeding events at Ronald McDonald. Zakat Foundation seemed to be so sincere in making each event the best it could possibly be. They also tried their best to make each meal nutritious and would spend time with those they served, by sharing the meal with them. I love Zakat Foundation! - Farrah

Zakat Foundation Delaware branch gave my family the best platform to give Zakat and sadaqah and socialize with charitable friends. In Islam, we know that we are to give time, energy and money to those less fortunate and with ZF there are easy ways to form friendships and help others at the same time. One of our family favorites was the monthly bake sale for 99 orphans. We ate authentic food of a region, collected money per plate served at the bake sale and the best part was gathering and enjoying each other while we sent 100% of the money raised to needy orphans in that region.

I volunteer at the Delaware branch of Zakat Foundation but am also a client that has been served. Having an option for our kids to make a difference at a young age is vital to build their character and be selfless. The children have led projects like fundraising through bake sales for building wells in Africa, funding 99 orphans per year, competing to build an artistic structure out of canned goods then donating them, tending and harvesting a garden for the needy in Delaware. Even older kids tutor the younger ones in math, English and other subjects. The group of volunteers are dedicated to serve the local and global community.

Zakat Foundation taught me to give away without expecting any benefits. When it comes to help people in need, ones become thousands. Zakat foundation is the place where good things were started and maintained
