About Zakat Now
Zakat Now is a religious, charitable organization working in the Greater Philadelphia region.
Zakat Now was developed for two important reasons:
- To give donors the confidence that their money is going to Zakat-eligible individuals domestically with full transparency. We want YOU to be confident in giving us YOUR money and trusting us with fulfilling YOUR zakat obligation.
- To uplift the lives of local Zakat eligible individuals and families who don’t have resources.
What do we give to zakat elibible individuals?
How does it work?
Our case manager works to evaluate, interview, and vet individuals interested in obtaining Zakat. The manager obtains appropriate documentation and references, and submits reports to committee members from the community and board that make a decision for amount and duration of assistance.
The individual/family is then given a required appointment with a financial planner prior to being disbursed funds. For questions please call or email us below.
