Our team ensures that the beneficiaries are eligible for Zakat by completing our due diligence with the community and field implementing partner.
Maximum of 10% Goes to Field Implementing Partner
In the Qur’an, it states that the Al-Amilina Alayha (The Zakat Collectors) are entitled to 1/8th of the Zakat. Penny Appeal Canada will pay the field implementing partner a maximum of 10% of your Zakat to deliver projects in the community.
Report Back After Implementing The Project
Upon completion of the project, Penny Appeal Canada will post a completion report on the project that was completed, where it was completed, why it was done there and how much of your Zakat was spent in our quarterly reports.
