It is with sadness that the ICV Zakat team would like to notify you that as of 16th of February, 2018 we will no longer be conducting any further zakat assessments. Instead we are happy to announce that we have partnered with the National Zakat Fund (NZF):
Any existing arrangements organisation have with the ICV Zakat Fund are now no longer in place, and organisations wishing to use NZF will need to go through their intake process and procedure.
Please note: The ICV Zakat Fund will still be collecting Zakat (donations) which will be transferred on a monthly basis to the NZF who will then assess and distribute it to those in need.
NZF provide a holistic distribution service which goes beyond collection and distribution and focuses on awareness and education. It fits in line with the ICV Zakat values of empowering and educating the community. Providing a hand-up not a hand-out. The NZF provide the following:
o 100% Zakat distribution. Every dollar you paid as Zakat, will be distribute to the needy.
o 100% local distribution
o NZF have over 4,200 cases since 2013, right here in Australia distribution over $3 million in Zakat.
o NZF are a registered charity & all donations are tax deductible.
We also believe that we need to strengthen our community and social services and not duplicate them. As NZF specialise specifically on Zakat we feel they are well placed to meet the needs of the community now and into the future.
Over the last 6 years the ICV Zakat Fund has distributed over $500,000 to over 1,000 families, and we hope to continue to help many more families through the NZF.
At this point we would like to thank all of the organisations and case-workers that have supported us over the journey and wish them and their clients all the best. We are certain they will get the same if not a better level of service with the NZF. If you have any further queries then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
