the us-Sunnah Foundation
a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to providing comprehensive solutions to end poverty. We are a 501c3 charity and all donations are zakat eligible and tax deductible. Since the beginning we have strove to keep overhead to a bare minimum while treating every donation as a trust for use only to the greatest benefit of those in need that rely on us.
At the us-Sunnah Foundation, our mission is to provide comprehensive solutions to end poverty, including both immediate relief coupled with long-term approaches. We are dedicated to changing the lives of orphans and refugees in meaningful and permanent ways, while being the most efficient charity we can be.
The us-Sunnah Foundation was founded in 2014 with a simple but powerful goal: to be the most efficient charity possible. We recognized that there are many organizations working to help those in need, but we wanted to make a real impact by using a unique approach. Our vision is to create a world where all people have access to basic needs, education, and a life free of poverty so they can flourish.
Today, we have a proven track record now of continuously caring for hundreds of orphans and have expanded our efforts to cover most of those in need in our first district of operation. Over the last decade we have cared for the basic needs of our orphans and allowed them to stay in school with stability. We have been pleased to see many grow, graduate, and flourish in life with many making up our volunteers now as adults. Through our relief program to provide that basic stability and our long-term efforts to go beyond food with education and other assistance we have seen real impact, real change, and know that every donation really matters.
The us-Sunnah Foundation focuses on a holistic approach to poverty alleviation, which means we provide both immediate relief efforts and long-term solutions. We started our first few years by focusing on the purchase of rice fields and the construction of low-income apartments, which provide not only direct support to those in need, but also the recurring cash income we need for administrative and operational costs, such as hosting for this website. This approach allows us to have a monetized endowment (waqf) to cover all our operations and give donors a true 100% donation policy, which is extremely unique
Our journey began in 2014 when we established the us-Sunnah Foundation with the mission to be the most efficient charity we could be. We started by focusing on purchasing rice fields to provide for operations and begin rice distributions to orphans. In 2015, we provided aid to Rohingya refugees in Aceh by partnering with the Indonesian government and local organizations. While addressing their immediate needs, we also worked on formulating long-term solutions. We were the only international organization able to provide aid to these camps through our partnerships and setup. In 2016, we completed building low-income apartments in the same neighborhoods we help. Since our first few formative years we have continued consistently with that same mission and dedication until today.
