At Zakat Foundation of America, we believe in the power of charity to change lives, connect cultures and lay the foundation for a brighter future for humanity.
One significant day which celebrates this is the International Day of Charity, which occurs every year on September 5th with the goal of mobilizing individuals and organizations to help with global philanthropic and volunteering activities.
The International Day of Charity was created in 2011 to honor the legacy of Mother Theresa of Calcutta, who worked tirelessly throughout her life to help the vulnerable overcome cycles of poverty and distress.
We believe that this wonderful initiative is a great way to channel Islamic charity into even greater good and we’re excited to share with you what we plan for International Day of Charity 2023.
This International Day of Charity 2023, we’re kicking off our Monthly Giving Circle.
