Mission Statement

Founded in 2001, the Zakat Foundation of America aims to foster charitable giving and help generous and caring people reach out to those in need with direct aid. We strive to bridge the gap between our financially privileged donors and our beneficiaries in financial need, as we believe that the first group has responsibilities towards the second. Zakat Foundation is dedicated to alleviating the immediate needs of the poorest communities by providing food, shelter, health care and by delivering relief in emergencies. Zakat Foundation also provides education and training in order to equip people with the skills to help themselves.

Description

Zakat Foundation of America is a non-governmental, non-political, non-profit international relief and development organization registered under the laws of the State of Illinois. As a humanitarian relief and development organization, Zakat Foundation endeavors to adhere to the core humanitarian principles set forth in the code of conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs in Disaster Relief, particularly its provisions on humanity, impartiality, independence and neutrality.
