Our 100% Zakat Policy Explained

What is Zakat?

Zakat is an annual charitable payment that is compulsory for Muslims. Your zakat will go on to benefit those who need it most.

Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam

Your Zakat is a beautiful pillar of Islam that we will ensure goes to the neediest. This includes care for orphans and the elderly, providing food and water to those who lack these resources, delivering healthcare and education, or emergency aid to those struck by a disaster.

100% Zakat Policy

Penny Appeal Canada is proud to have a 100% Zakat policy – meaning no administrative fee is taken by our office. Your Zakat goes directly to the distributors and beneficiaries.

Donate your Zakat to one of our many Zakat applicable appeals today!

Dedicated Bank Account

Zakat funds will be held in a dedicated interest-free bank account prior to them being sent to the designated countries.

0% Admin Fees

Canadian administrative cost will not be claimed on any Zakat payment.

Zakat goes to Muslims First and Ensures Recipients are Eligible to Receive Your Zakat:

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.
