Giving safely at Ramadan

The Charity Commission and Fundraising Regulator launched the safer giving campaign to urge people to give safely this Ramadan.

During Ramadan the Charity Commission and the Fundraising Regulator are encouraging people to take some simple steps to ensure their Zakat donations reach their intended causes.

The Muslim Charities Forum estimates that Muslims across Britain donated around £130 million during Ramadan last year. This generosity contributes to important work that helps strengthen communities and improve lives. However, the regulators are warning that in rare cases, people can seek to take advantage of this generosity and valuable donated funds can end up in the wrong hands.

The Charity Commission and the Fundraising Regulator have therefore launched a safer giving campaign aiming to help donors continue giving generously to registered charities this Ramadan. The regulators’ tips include checking and verifying a charity’s registration number before giving, and being more cautious and verifying the ID of people collecting for charitable causes.
