How Your Ramadan Donation Makes An Impact

Every dollar of your Ramadan donation makes an impact. Your sadaqah and zakat — and all the generosity that comes with them — feeds people in Islam’s holiest month.

When making a Ramadan donation through Zakat Foundation of America, you provide staple foods for families to be able to cook fresh meals for themselves throughout the entire month. And you provide warm meals for those who aren’t in a position to prepare their own.

Your intention is a key in helping people, and your follow-through unlocks doors separating zakat and sadaqah recipients from donations. This Ramadan, Zakat Foundation of America’s donors helped feed the hungry in dozens of countries
