I'm a volunteer now, but I was previously a client. Al Maun Fund offers a helping hand to those who need it most. I constantly hear stories of those Al Maun Fund has helped. I also know how tirelessly the admin works to continue providing to those in need.

I can't say enough about Al Maun Fund. They truly are a relief for so many families who are in need. When someone is in need, they sincerely strive to help in every way. Instead of constantly looking down their noses asking how did you let it get this bad, they look for ways to solve the problem. What a comfort to those in need.

Al Maun Fund is a great source for those struggling in the Muslim community. Our community is far short on these types of resources, and AMF makes it easy both to give, and receive. The staff is kind, courteous and genuinely concerned about the people they are helping.

Al Maun Fund is a great not-for-profit organization that really connects the contributor with the actual people receiving the charity. Although you do not know the names of the people receiving the charity, Al Maun Fund provides you with their information. Therefore, giving the donor a glimpse into others lives and opening up their hearts by giving them whatever amount of money they could (literally). It is not ambiguous, nor grandiose. I love working for this charity because it's real and helps people like me, living the middle-class life, who sometimes needs to be reminded that there are others who are in need. They are not on top of your back for money nor do they ask for much. I would recommend this charity to anyone, and it is the only one that I contribute to :)

I love Al Maun fund. Although I have never received any money from them, I love the fact that others are able to turn to them and get what they need. The owners/ operators go out of their way to keep it going. I hope others will keep donating so that the benefit can be there for whomever needs it.

The problem it's giving to non profit organizations but when you KNOW that your donations are assisting people in need that are right in your own community it makes you want to give more. Al MAUN is an asset to the people allowing us to believe in one another.

As Salaamu Alaikum (Peace be upon you),

I have donated to Al Maun Fund. The reason for my donation is that I have been in a situation where I need a place to go. I had to return home to my non-muslim family instead. I would like to contribute to this not happening to any other Muslim women and children especially. Al Maun Fund helps in so many ways to ensure that families have the needs that will help them survive and be thankful to ALLAH!

I've always been a person who looks for ways that I can assist others, particularly other single mothers like myself. A friend of mine told me about Al Maun Fund and I liked that it's about Muslim women assisting others.

I was able to assist someone who was in need of a winter coat and so without hesitation I went to my closet and was able to find a suitable one that didn't fit me correctly but was able to assist someone else.

I received a very nice thank you note from the recipient, which was unexpected and really not necessary since I gave from my heart and not because I wanted someone to acknowledge what I had done.

In these tough economic times, programs like Al Maun Fund are a blessing to many people and is a means for us to help one another.

Al Maun Fund has been servicing the community for many years. They are dedicated to servicing the needs of the less fortunate, and those who may need a temporary helping hand. They do a great job, and public support is greatly needed/appreciated.

I have donated my times from Al Maun fund. The women who are in charge have made my drop off process very easy for me. I was even allowed to drop off a huge donation to one of their homes. I also have been to their thrift store recieves a ton of help from them.

I have donated to al maun fund a couple times in the past and they are an excellent fund that helps those in need. May our Creator make it a blessing for them all who participate in this excellent source of needed funds and proper distribution. They do a great job at collecting information for those in need and letting others know what is needed, collecting it, distributing it, and doint their best to help everyone in great need.

My experience with Maun is as a donor as well as a reference for someone in need of help. As for being a Maun donor, although my contributions were small I felt it was much appreciated by Maun staff. As for being a reference to someone seeking help, the staff was very professional over the phone in the verification of the needy person and they did receive the help that was needed; and for this I am grateful to Maun. Although, contributions may be small, the time and effort that is spent making sure requests are valid is appreciated by me as I know that the funds are going for legitimate needs. This is something that should not be overlooked. Thank you for allowing me this chance to share. All the best!

I have been donating to Al Maun Fund for some time now and i really have to say that it is the one that i really trust in that which they have taken the responsibility of helping others , which is no doubt one of the praiseworthy attributes that one can have, as there are many people who embark on the same mission but end up in a state of being too greedy or extravagant in spending on themselves. May they be rewarded the best for their excellent job. I will continue to donate for as long as God wills.

Al Maun Fund is a wonderful organization that helps the needy of the community in a variety of ways. I have found them to be very professional and compassionate in their efforts to help the community and would recommend that anyone looking to do a good deed, to consider helping them to help others. Truly, this is a global community and we all have to help each other and stand next to each other as human beings to life up and help those less fortunate then ourselves.

I donated for specific individuals and it is my understanding that the money reached those in need. Al-Maun Fund provides a valuable services and I do not praise them over Allah and He knows best about their situation.

I live in a developing part of the Muslim world, where almost everyone encounters someone daily who is obviously in need of sadaqa. I like that Al Maun fund allows some of my sadaqa to reach my brothers and sisters back in the US, where I'm from, and where it's not always obvious that others may be in need. I also like that donors might see and choose in what way their contribution is of benefit.

I have known about Al-Maun Fund and the great assistance they provide to needy families for over five years. Everything about their organization is professional, respectful, and transparent. Although I do not have a lot of money to donate, I have been able to assist with small amounts throughout the years and I know that what I am able to give goes a long way in helping those less fortunate in their times of need. We all know that sometimes it is just something as small as falling behind with the electric bill or needing a minor repair to your automobile that could set you back so much and just being able to help others out of those types of situations is a real blessing. I look forward to being a donor to al-Maun Fund for many more years to come.
