Chicago, Ill. (April 3, 2020) — Charity Navigator has once again selected Zakat Foundation of America as a top charity for emergency relief. This time, for its work battling COVID-19 with food package and hygiene kit distributions and for delivering medical supplies to underserved hospitals and clinics.
Only organizations given Charity Navigator’s four-star rating (out of four stars) are listed as charities to support to alleviate the burden from the pandemic. Zakat Foundation of America, rated four stars since 2010, is a leader on Charity Navigator’s COVID-19 Relief Supplies: Community & Support Services Relief List.
Charity Navigator’s exclusive four-star rating is reserved for exceptional nonprofit organizations that exhibit the most responsible fiscal management and a demonstrated commitment to transparency and accountability. It is only awarded after a rigorous and extensive data-driven examination shows that a given organization is run with the highest ethical standards.
“These charities are providing economic assistance to service industry workers, low-income families, immigration legal services, vulnerable children and their caretakers, and more,” Charity Navigator posted to its website about the coronavirus pandemic. “The donations you make today will directly help those who need it most. Please consider supporting one of these trustworthy organizations today.”
