This year, we celebrate a milestone – the 10th anniversary of National Zakat Foundation, an organisation that has been dedicated to spreading the benefits of Zakat in Australia since 2013.

For 10 years, we have been working tirelessly to assist those in need through local Zakat, educate and support Muslims to accurately calculate and pay their Zakat, and fulfil the obligation of this beautiful Pillar of Islam.

As we reflect on the past decade, we are thankful to Allah and we are filled with gratitude for the impact we have made and the lives we have touched. We have distributed over $14 million in Zakat locally, assisting over 19,000 families and educating tens of thousands of Muslims about the importance of local Zakat.

Alhamdulillah, these numbers will continue to grow in the coming years, insha Allah.

But, as we look towards the future, we must also strive for innovation. We are faced with a choice – do we continue to grow and meet the demand of both increasing Zakat payers and those in need in our community? Or do we re-evaluate our position and innovate our services to empower something far greater?

We have realised that the transformation we have witnessed in our community over the past 10 years is a testament to the power and impact that can be made when the community comes together for a common cause.

With the increasing number of community organisations and individual partners eager to join us in making a difference, we believe that our community is reaching a maturity point where we can empower our collective community to assist Zakat receivers at scale, right here in Australia.

Surely, by tapping into this unified strength, we will be able to achieve far more than any single organisation ever will be able to on its own!

This is our dream. Empowering a community where Muslims are constantly connected and aware of those in need locally and being able to respond in a timely manner.

A brother who is a stranded traveller, a sister who is escaping domestic violence, a family who is undergoing a financial emergency and can’t afford food, all at your fingertips, anonymous, Zakat eligibility verified and underpinned by a powerful, reliable system and framework, powered by NZF.

In addition, you will have easily accessible and trusted tools to learn, calculate & pay your Zakat securely.

With your support and dua, we believe this dream will become a reality, Inshallah. We look forward to the next 10 years of transformation, not just as an organisation, but as a community united by a shared goal of assisting and uplifting those in need and reaping the rewards of the powerful pillar of Zakat.

Together, we can make a real difference in Changing Tomorrow.

Join us in celebrating the last decade of NZF, and working towards realising our dreams for the next.
