What’s involved?

We know that everyone is busy, so as a Zakat Champion, there are many different activities you can get involved in to support our work. You can do as much (or as little) as you like; just choose the activities which are right for you.

Examples of ways you can contribute to our work include:

  • Raising awareness about our work – Speak to your friends, send a text or put up some posters. Spread the message so more people know what we do and why we exist.
  • Increasing understanding of Zakat and its rulings – Organise a Zakat seminar, hold a study circle in your home or promote our Zakat Q&A Service. Revive the knowledge of this forgotten pillar.
  • Raising funds for NZF – Organise a cake sale, hold an auction, or participate in an NZF event. Fund our vital work and alleviate poverty on your doorstep.

 

The above are just some ways to get involved with NZF. By registering as an Zakat Champion, you’ll receive a welcome pack through the post, information regarding upcoming events in your area, and regular updates about our work.
