We maintain the Zakat funds in a separate account. These funds are used in providing financial assistance to our clients who qualify. The assistance is provided in-kind, i.e. we write checks directly to the client’s landlord (rent assistance), to PG&E (utilities), and to VTA (transportation). This policy is for the protection of our donors and the organization, by assuring there is no misuse of any funds. We process new applications each year, and decide on appropriate provisions of our services based on need and our budget for that year. We are also collaborating with local organizations to distribute zakat to the clients. It is our goal to consolidate and centralize a more effective zakat distribution system for the entire Bay Area. We encourage community members from different cities to funnel their zakat dollars to Rahima Foundation for the local needy families.

We are currently supporting about 100 families with financial assistance.
