What is the National Zakat Foundation?
The National Zakat Foundation (NZF) gives grants to UK Muslims in poverty for basic essentials like food, clothing, shelter, job training, legal help and debt relief.
This support lets people get on the path to being financially independent, and it allows them to feel confident about their future.
NZF also invests in leading institutions and emerging leaders, such as our future imams, scholars and community activists.
Through this investment, we make real and lasting change by supporting and developing institutions who provide us with guidance for the challenges we face at home, at work and in wider society.
Since our establishment in 2011, we have distributed over £10 million of Zakat to support over 10,000 people in the UK, and we’ve invested in 30 emerging leaders and 6 vital UK projects and institutions.
