At NZF we aim to utilise Zakat funds collected in Australia to provide a lifeline for local, deserving recipients. This group consists of some of the most vulnerable members of our community, including widows, orphans, refugees, the elderly and the homeless.
Our highest priority and most basic type of assistance is providing immediate temporary accommodation to a sister who is on the street, or assisting with funeral expenses for a sudden death in the family or many more emergency situations.
Crisis Accommodation Centers
A few homes in VIC and NSW have been leased to serve as short term accommodation that provide a safe environment for our brothers & sisters while going through a period of difficulty.
We run programs to help refugees manage their circumstances whilst living in the community such as financial assistance, helping them in enrolling their children in school, networking within the local community, finding a rental house and more.
Back to School Grants
We provide grants to families who are unable to provide for basic necessities for children to go to school at the start of the school year.
NZF Food Vouchers
Since 2013, we have built a network of businesses such as grocers and butchers through whom a Zakat recipient can redeem NZF Food Vouchers. This ensures Zakat funds are being used to empower multiple entities within our local community.
We have partnered with various professional services such as financial planners, counselors, training institutes, employment agencies etc. where we are able to refer suitable clients to use their services often free of charge.

QUESTIONS THAT EVERYONE ASKS!
Does NZF assist people locally in Australia or those overseas?
We only assist people in need in Australia. We do not provide any assistance to those in need overseas and believe there are a number of organizations who are already assisting those overseas effectively.
With the number of Muslims in Australia increasing year on year however, there is a growing need for local assistance which is our focus.
100% Zakat distribution
We operate on a 100% Zakat distribution policy.
This means that for every $1 in Zakat payments that we receive, that $1 is distributed to someone in need locally. We take absolutely no portion of the Zakat collected to cover any NZF operational costs.
How does NZF sustain itself if it has a 100% Zakat distribution policy?
All our operations are supported through sponsorship and sadaqah donations that generous members of the community donate to help us to establish this forgotten pillar in our communities. The more
community support we have, the further we can grow & expand our services. You can support our vision by signing up to donating just $1 a day on our website
Are donations to NZF tax deductible?
Yes, NZF has a deductible gift recipient (DGR) status which means all your donations over $2 are fully tax deductible. A common question that comes up is whether or not it is permissible in Islam to claim donations as tax deductions, the answer is YES!
