Giving to Our Children: Our Future

Giving to our children is essential. Have you instilled happiness and hope in a child’s life? Zakat Foundation of America honors gift donations for children in need all year round.

EID Gifts

Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al Adha are the two important holidays that Muslims all over the world celebrate.

Eid Al Fitr is the first Islamic holiday, celebrated after the month of Ramadan. Eid Al Adha is the second holiday, celebrated two months after Eid Al-Fitr. Both holidays provide opportunities to give donations for gifts that create pleasant memories for families in need.

Donate an Eid gift for only $25 to Zakat Foundation America’s Gift Donations for Children and families. All donations will go to children in need all over the world.


As we are donating to children in need, do not forget about our precious Orphans who need blessings from caring people like us.

There are three ways to help our orphans in need:
1. Orphan Sponsorship - Sponsor an Orphan and provide food, clothes, health care, and education to a specific orphan for $30/ month;

2. Orphanage Construction - Donate to our Sadaqa Jariyah Programs to assist in building and maintaining orphanages which provide a nurturing environment to care for our orphans;

3. Assistance Funds - Donate to Assistance Funds to make your donation count where most needed for widows & orphans, families, or scholarship funds.

Backpack Program

Another assistance program that we provide for children around the world is our Backpack Program. This program provides children with backpacks full of supplies for school.

The Backpack Program provides several ways you can help:

1. Do it yourself (DIY) with our “To Kids, From Kids with Love” Program. Choose a gender / age range of a child whose face you wish to bring a smile, purchase a backpack and fill it with gender/age appropriate supplies and even a personalized note if you wish, deliver the backpack donation to the Zakat Foundation of America. We will distribute to a child in need. Please do not send used objects, war-related toys, perishable items, medicine, breakable items or sharp objects.

2. Let us do it for you. Through your monetary donation to our Backpack Program we will purchase backpacks and fill them with school supplies to distribute both locally and abroad.

3. Volunteer your time to help us fill backpacks with supplies, pack and ship them to children in need. U.S. Backpack programs are seasonal and occur yearly in June, July and early August. Click here to request information on becoming a volunteer.

Inshallah, together we can make a difference.
