Mission: from website:

Zakat Foundation of America is an international charity organization that helps generous and caring people reach out to those in need. Our goal is to address immediate needs and ensure the self-reliance of the poorest people around the world with Zakat and Sadaqa dollars of privileged Muslims and the support of other generous donors.

We believe that those whom God has granted wealth need to cleanse that wealth through charity, and those whom God has tried with loss are accorded a rightful share from the resources of the affluent.

Mission
Zakat Foundation fosters charitable giving to alleviate the immediate needs of poor communities and to establish long-term development projects that ensure individual and community growth.

Zakat Foundation has come up with a unique model due to the tremendous challenges in Haiti. We have organized the local Muslim community volunteers who are working with the Zakat Foundation staff. They purchase supplies daily in the neighboring Dominican Republic and truck them in to their distribution points in Port-au-Prince. Our distribution point is the open camp below the St. Clare Church. Zakat Foundation runs a clinic and daily hot food distribution center feeding 2,000-3,000 regularly. Other distribution locations include the Masjid Tahweed and an abandoned amusement park, Bojeux Park, where our partner organization IMANA (Islamic Medical Association of North America) treats and provides food packages to 300 people daily.
