By the grace of God, then generous support of our donors and volunteers, ZF has been able to provide consistent relief and sustainable development programs to those in most need. We are committed to showing the inclusive beauty of Islam through programs and activities that reach the destitute without discrimination of faith, race, gender, national origin, age, creed, or disability, both at home and abroad. We do that while observing the specific Quranic guidelines for Zakat distribution.
We also are in need of people who believe in our cause and want to be a part of making change by getting involved.
Our donors are of great value to us and we wish to give them every confidence that their donation will go towards the cause of their choice. We have adopted a Donor Bill of Rights with your privacy in mind.
Donors should be assured of our fiscal responsibility as we take pride in careful management and distribution of funds raised. To that end we seek to be transparent in our operations by making our financial and legal documents publicly available. ZF is a partner you can trust.
