Zakat foundation made a water well for my late father that will benefit so much people. It was built near a mosque so imagine how many people will do wadu for their prayers, how many sadiga my father will be getting everyday. May Allah bless Zakat Foundation and all the work that it does on behalf of people.

The Zakat Foundation of America has proven over the course of the last decade, what an amazing organization they are, through the inspiring work that they do every single day. Their services have been empowering the lives of at-risk communities, through bringing clean water to communities worldwide, and providing emergency relief in the face of a global pandemic, through providing over 1 million pounds of food boxes to those in need. It is organizations like Zakat Foundation of America that communities can count on, whether to help support orphans who have lost their stability and families due to war, or bring about food security to communities who have lost their livelihood due to conflict. They deserve all the recognition they get so that their work can continue to empower and lift those communities that need it the most around the world.

Food another basic necessity is provided to many families all over the U.S in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

I've been involved with ZF for a couple years now and I highly recommend anyone who wants to make a demonstrable impact to consider volunteering with ZF because of its efficiency and expertise. I remember the first time seeing an advertisement for Zakat Foundation when I had just found out about the internet when I was little. It's amazing to now be a part of that purpose-driven outreach and impact.

Hello, my name is Zeba Hussaini and I have been a volunteer with Zakat Foundation for 5 years and I have been a ZF ambassador for 2 years and have enjoyed every second of my time with this great non-profit organization. One of the many amazing things about Zakat Foundation is their emergency disaster relief programs. Whenever there is a natural disaster or something unexpected happens where families are in need of help (such as this pandemic), ZF is always the first on site to help and to provide to those in need. When we went into a pandemic, ZF made grocery boxes to distribute to families who needed them. They also started collecting laptops/chromebooks for the students that don't have them at home. And once we found out we would not be returning to school, we were quick to begin teaching/tutoring all subjects online for those who need it. ZF is the best non-profit organization I have worked with and I hope to continue to work with ZF.

I just started volunteering with Zakat Foundation here in NC, alhamdulilah. Along with and with assistance of sister Nayma Kose, I have started a women's knitting/crochet group to make scarves for the needy. I really enjoy this type of activity and I love working with other sisters for a worthy cause. I hope to expand this group and to continue to volunteer with Zakat Foundation in years to come inshaAllah.

The strong stench smell of carcases carried by hot dry and dusty air chocked the already hungry and tired people of Northern Kenya. The scorching sun made them more dehydrated and hungry. The drought was exacerbated by the delay in onset of April-June rains. The drought was real and had affected more than 2.5 million people severely. Children and women were hard hit. Most of us could stay for days without having anything to eat. We could walk for long distances to get drinking water which was even unsafe. Government and humanitarian responses could not match the needs of the people. We were lucky to be visited by the Zakat Foundation of America in our manyatta (village comprising of shanty huts). They gave us food and clean drinking water in June when they were marking Ramadan. The food was given to everyone irrespective of our religion, tribe or political affiliations. A widow, who had walked for 13 days looking for food, lost 4 of her kids on the way. She and the remaining kids were saved by porridge and rice which was served by the Zakat Foundation of America. As a village elder, I still remember the hope and life restored to us by that foundation from far world. They gave our mothers and children a second chance to live. We owe it to them and God.

This past winter I assisted Zakat Foundation employees and volunteers driving up and down the streets of Chicago looking for the homeless during a polar vortex. Temperatures reached -25F. They also went to several police departments and libraries and shelters looking for people to rescue or help. Those found were fed and housed in hotels. Many would have died if not for the interventions of zf. I will never forget one of them asking about the warm hotel room, shower and food “Is this a dream?”
I’ll never forget their joy..

Zakat is tirelessly serving efforts to fulfill humanitarian aid across the globe. They are effective in focusing their efforts in areas that are in the most need based on ongoing crises. The charity is creative and purposeful in that it aims not only to relieve but to sustain through building schools, orphanages, water wells and other continues projects that reap fruits long after their establishment. Their orphan sponsorship program also spans across the world and allows for a true relationship to be established between donors and orphans which highlights the beauty of the donation and encourages continuous charity; to see the impact of your donation. Zakat is transparent and has minimizes overhead costs so all money collected has the highest impact. We cannot fail to mention the beautiful people that act as the pillars to hold up this organization. May God reward their efforts.

I've volunteered, donated through, and worked with Zakat Foundation for many years now. I've seen how the organization operates through the perspective of several different roles and I have to say, the transparency, intentionality, and excellence with which they carry out their life-changing work is unmatched. All projects are carried out in ethical and sustainable ways, empowering local communities in the process of delivering aid and inspiring people of all generations to get involved in their own unique way. Zakat Foundation isn't just an organization, it's a CULTURE of GIVING.

I trust Zakat Foundation because it meets the standards of the Better Business Bureau and is transparent with its income and expenses. Its administrative costs for every donation is lower than the average national charity. I also know that my donations go towards causes that are close to my heart, not only at the global and national level, but also at the local level. ZF's North Carolina chapter is committed to the betterment of the local community and was there to serve the victims of Hurricane Florence and other natural disasters. I highly recommend ZF as a place to contribute your money and volunteer time.

My name is Sabina. It's been 3 years I am volunteering with ZFNC. I have learned so much through this organization and witnessed so many great programs. I didn't even realize how much they do for the local community, for the society and all over the world! And how beautifully they brings the community together,it's really amazing! I have experienced the unity that comes from this type of work. Alhamdulillah I'm grateful for the opportunity and experience. I'm proud and honored to have ZF in NC in the community. I've learned an incredible amount to help others. People donate their time, efforts, and intellect, and being a part of this cycle that yields so much benefit to others. I had no idea that working together with just volunteers could result in such great work. It's fun, enjoyable, engages the Muslim community from kids to elders, celebrates our identities, increases us in faith, keeps us motivated and educated too. I love being a part of it.

Zakat Foundation is a charity organization that helps with local and international causes. One of the many things I love about Zakat Foundation is that it involves the youth in helping others. The youth benefits from this by learning about what other people have to go through and how we should be very grateful. In all my time being a volunteer with Zakat Foundation, I have enjoyed every moment in volunteering and helping others. I have been with Zakat Foundation for a couple of years now and I can not wait for more opportunities to come.

My son (high school senior) and I joined the Zakat Foundation as volunteers couple of months ago. I have been part of non-profit, charitable organizations before and I have to say I am very impressed by the dedication, the collaboration and the professionalism of the volunteers. I am excited to see the enthusiasm and dedication of people from all walks of life, from students (primary, middle & high school, college) to professionals and others in between. The global and local projects undertaken by the Zakat Foundation are a constant source of inspiration. These projects range from building water wells in developing countries to assisting individuals and local communities affected by natural disasters. The range of community service activities provided are far and wide with positive short-term as well as long-term impacts. Some examples include: providing warm meals, canned food, water and cleaning supplies to communities affected by hurricanes; cleaning up debris from an elderly lady’s yard and driveway post Florence; preparing and serving hot meals at RMH; offering Maths and SAT group tutoring classes; assisting refugees and those less fortunate in the broader community. I am proud to be part of this fantastic organization with an amazing group of volunteers. I would strongly encourage people to donate with their time and/or funds.

I am an outreach intern for Zakat Foundation of North Carolina. It’s been an incredible experience working and volunteering with Zakat Foundation. Zakat foundation had a huge impact on my life. Projects like the 99 orphans or the well project have given me many ways to give back to the community. When it comes to the community who stands behind Zakat foundation works together through a donation and helping the orphans-the impact is too large because we are throughly bringing and working a difference. Zakat Foundation has its own center in North Carolina where they have many programs such as the SAT prep class, Math enrichment, Defence class and much more. Zakat foundation looks for ways to help others in need and I am blessed to be part of this wonderful organization.

Zakat Foundation is such a great nonprofit organization! Their members are so very kind to work with and they’re always ready to help—-no matter the cause! I’ve seen them for a few years now immediately organize food/clothes/hygiene drives for those affected by the hurricanes. Even when places were blocked off they were still trying their hardest to get supplies to those who need it. Everyone in the organization is dedicated, hardworking, and compassionate! Truly amazing people and, honestly, just the best organization!

Zakat Foundation has had an immense impact on my life. Before I got involved with the organization, I used to take advantage all the privileges I have. With projects such as the 99 orphans initiative, or the well project, I have found ways to give back to the community and help in any way I can. I used to look at volunteering as a burden, now I look as it as a blessing because I get to help people who do not have the same privileges I do Zakat foundation has also established a sense of community around our area. Now with a community center, various different programs can take place. One that I am extremely thankful for is the SAT prep. If it weren’t for that, I may have not gotten a decent score. Zakat foundation is constantly looking for ways to help the community, and I am happy to be a small part of it.

I've visited Zakat Foundation's programs in West Africa and in Turkey (for Syrian refugees) and witnessed first hand the tremendous impact it has in building self-reliance and restoring dignity to some of the most distressed communities I had ever seen in my life. The organization's messaging and image is humble, but it's footprint in the world is huge. I was surprised to see so many people in these countries - from the impoverished villagers and refugees to government authorities and institutional leaders - all talk about Zakat Foundation so fondly like a household name and a lifeline for their communities' development.

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.

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.

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.
