Get Involved

Zakat Foundation of America

Would you like to be a changemaker? You can volunteer for ZF and make a real difference in other people's lives by holding a creative fundraising activity for a humanitarian cause. Here's how you can get started on your service project:

Step 1

Choose a ZF cause to support. Browse our website for current campaigns to help those in need. For instance, you can fundraise to construct a water well in a marginalized West African village that is suffering from water scarcity. Afterwards, we will send you a photo of your well with your name on it! Or you might like to raise funds to sponsor education fees for a Syrian refugee child who has lost up to four years of school due to the Syrian crisis. Or you can fundraise to send relief packages to Rohingya Muslims who are perhaps the most persecuted people of our time. Can't think of a cause? Contact us, we'll be glad to discuss some options with you.

Step 2

Brainstorm a creative fundraising activity, such as bake sales, a movie night, 5K walk, open mic night, fundraising dinner, basketball tournament, etc.

Step 3

Once you've chosen a cause and have an idea, complete the online form below. Look out for an email or phone call from a ZF rep who will support you along the way!
