Special Notes on specific donation types
Waqf Donation – by fiqh, waqf donations, including monetary donations, are submitted whole to the nazhir (executor) of waqf projects. Depending on the project, some donations may be eligible for a waqf certificate. However, to cover for our transfer and operational fees, we suggest an additional infaq donation of up to 10% with your waqf donation.
Zakat Donation – Please consider adding 3% when using electronic payments to your total zakat donation. This will compensate for any transaction fees deducted from your donation by the credit card companies, and will ensure that your intended zakat amount is paid in full. Alternatively we accept zakat donations by check. Please mail your check to: Dompet Dhuafa USA, Zakat Payment, 4445 Corporation Ln Ste 264 Virginia Beach, VA, 23462. Include your email address on your check if you would like us to email you the receipt.
