Zakat Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt religious and
charitable organization. Our mission is to provide
assistance for food, shelter, clothing and
transportation for the poor and needy, orphans,
wayfarers, and other persons and needs deserving of
charity under Islamic law by assessing, collecting
and distributing obligatory and voluntary charity called
zakat and sadaqa.
Our primary objective is to serve poor and needy Muslims in the United States. This objective is implemented through our "Medina Program" project in which a case manager works with individual clients to formulate a plan by which they may achieve self-sufficiency. We provide financial assistance for rent, utilities, transportation, medicine, etc., along with counseling and referrals.
NOTICE: This organization provides NO scholarships, tuition money, nor any other payments to schools or universities, or to foreign organizations, nor will we send any money directly abroad.
DUE TO THE COVID-19 EMERGENCY OUR OFFICE IS CLOSED PER ORDER OF TEH GOVERNOR OF MARYLAND UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
