At Zakat Foundation of America, our zakat-funded programs are as diverse as they are expansive. We ensure donors have multiple options from which to select when deciding where to send their charity. Our programs are active across the world where they are overseen by our international offices (Jordan, Turkey, Mali, Ghana, and Bangladesh) as well as a number of partnerships based on the ground.
Zakat Foundation’s zakat-funded programs include:
- Food Aid: Sending essential water and food to the less fortunate, especially during Ramadan and Udhiya (Qurbani).
- Shelter: Repair or reconstruction to damaged infrastructure or temporary assistance in the form of tents.
- Orphan Sponsorship Program: Supporting a child with food, clothing, education, and healthcare.
Your donations are tax exempt under the section 170 of the 501(c)(3) section of the IRS code.
