Fundraising can be accomplished by gathering donations from individuals and business etc. by creating an activity for everyone to contribute towards. You can get involved with Ummah Charity International and help the less fortunate in an enjoyable way and we will wholeheartedly support you. You may have fundraising ideas of your own or you can have a look at some of the ideas we have shared on our website.
Spare Change Bucket
This idea requires minimal effort and will raise money throughout the year. You can keep these buckets in your house, give them to your neighbours or place them in a local halal meat or grocery store. Collect all these donation boxes regularly and help us by fundraising for a noble cause.

A true classic way to raise money for charity. You can make homemade baked goodies or drinks such as; milkshakes, smoothies or classic desserts (trifle, cake and custard etc.). Also, you can add a theme to your fundraiser such as a blue theme for clean and safe drinking water or you can pick another theme appropriate for the cause you have chosen.
Krispy Kreme sell doughnuts at a discounted price if they are going to be resold at a charity event. Get your hands on some and sell them in your neighbourhood at the recommended retail price and you can donate the difference to charity.
Packed Lunch Day
Encourage everyone in your neighbourhood or friends and family to make their lunch at home and take their packed lunch to work. Ask them to donate what they would have paid at the office cafe or local shop to charity instead.
You can involve people in with you for this fun activity in the summer. All you need for this is water, a bucket, a sponge and some car shampoo. You can do this in your neighbourhood or ask a local business to lend you their space.
Car Boot Sale
Collect all unwanted items from your house, your neighbourhood or family and friends. Find a good location and encourage people to join you in your car boot sale.
Football/Cricket Match or Tournament
You can raise money by arranging a charity football or cricket tournament. Otherwise get your local community involved and arrange a sports day with simple races like the sack race, egg and spoon race etc. Make it into a family fun event for everyone to participate in and charge an entrance fee or collect donations individually.
Walk/Cycle to Work
Save money by walking or cycling to work and donate the money you would have spent on public transport or petrol for charity. This idea will allow you to put your money towards a better cause, stay fit and is also good for the environment.
If you don’t have time to arrange an event you can join hands with Ummah Charity International by creating an online fundraising page, for instance on JustGiving, and you can start raising money immediately. You can use social media and WhatsApp to get others involved and get your friends and family to support you.
Zakat is not only the third pillar of Islam, but it is the sole duty that has the power to ease the burdens of millions of people around the world. You can take this obligatory action and help to save the lives of so many civilians who are suffering. Zakat is especially necessary for people like us, who take living in the Western world for granted. We do not need to worry about our food, our homes or disease. We do not have to worry if we will have a meal the next day. Our iftaar meals consist of several delicious, home-cooked dishes when there are people around the world who have no food at all. Fatigue, illness and helplessness are rife in these communities, and living on the streets is common. For some people, fighting poverty is not even a daily struggle, they are fighting this predator every minute of their lives. You can donate zakat online today and bring peace and harmony into someone’s life – after all, this action of yours has the power to transform entire communities, eradicate poverty and reduce hunger. At Ummah Charity International we take the responsibility of handling zakat extremely seriously and our zakat policy guarantees that every penny you give towards zakat will go directly to those who need it the most. Donate zakat online this Ramadhan and help to change someone’s life. Your help is building confidence and resilience within communities. In fact, without your zakat, Ummah Charity International is able to help thousands of people each year who are struggling to survive. The action of giving zakat is powerful and has the potential to contribute towards sustainable development in many destitute communities across the globe. However, it is natural to wonder who and where your zakat is going to, so we at Ummah Charity International give you the liberty of choosing a project which you would like to donate your zakat contribution towards. Your zakat can contribute to any of our social or livelihood projects. You can empower a woman, educate a child, feed a family, build a house or mosque, provide eye treatment or a wheelchair, dig a well or install a handpump. The possibilities of where your zakat goes are endless. Your zakat can change someone’s life. Why not donate zakat online today and contribute your part towards changing the world?
Sadaqah Jaariya is a beautiful, sustainable and ongoing form of charity. It is the only kind of worship from which we receive rewards even after passing away. Although Sadaqah is not just about giving money, it is about building up destitute communities, raising hope, standards and happiness. It is about giving people the confidence to work for their future. We do not just want them to squalor on the streets; we want to give them hope to stand on their own two feet and make their own living. This Ramadhan, you can donate Sadaqah online to give someone a better future. All around the world, civilians are facing hardship because of war and poverty. Families do not have enough food; some people have been injured in life-threatening incidents, others are on the brink of starvation, and even children have gone through excessive trauma such as losing their parents, loved ones, or homes. But with your Sadaqah donation, Ummah Charity International can bring these people out of their hopelessness and together we can take these disaster zones and combat the issues that these civilians are facing. You can amplify your rewards this Ramadhan and create an Islamic legacy for the future.
