Our Commitment

As a US-based, Muslim-run charity organization, Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) shows the inclusive beauty of Islam through programs that reach the destitute of all faiths both at home and abroad. Since its establishment in 2001, ZF has progressed from mostly offering immediate emergency aid and seasonal programs to a focus on severing the roots of poverty, utilizing Zakat and Sadaqa donations to develop long-term, sustainable solutions.
