Make a Donation

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on donations from people who want to make a difference in the world. We use your tax-deductible donations to fund projects that help empower millions of people. We help them recover from disasters and escape poverty by giving them the tools they need to control their own lives.

Your donations are always treated with the utmost care. No administrative costs are paid for out of contributions to emergency relief, orphan sponsorship, or seasonal Islamic giving programs.

For our diligence, we have been recognized by Charity Navigator as a top-rated charity for our transparency and good governance.

Fundraise for Us

Are you looking to make a more significant impact? Enlist the help of your family and friends by creating a DIY fundraiser with LaunchGood Or Facebook.

You can commemorate milestones such as birthdays, Eid, weddings, anniversaries, and even a child’s birth with a fundraiser that will go to communities in need.

A fundraiser you create can be customized to raise funds for projects that matter the most. From helping bring safe, clean water with our Water Program to sponsoring orphans with our Orphan Care Program, there are many ways you can make a difference!
