This year, we are celebrating 10 years of local Zakat at National Zakat Foundation Canada.
Over the years, the Canadian Muslim community has consistently supported their brothers and sisters in need, upholding their obligation to Allah and following the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (SAW).
Because of the unwavering belief in the power of local Zakat in our community, we have impacted the lives of over 40,000 individuals across the country over the past decade alone.
Join us for our 10 Year Anniversary Fundraising Gala as we celebrate this milestone and remember Allah as the Creator of Zakat, a flawless system of giving. May He enable us to continue serving the needs of our community!
We look forward to hosting you for an incredible night!
