The Last fews Eid , through your generosity we were able to feed countless people through Udhiya and Zakat al-Fitr.

This Ramadan 2024, we’re again working with the Zakat Fund of Kalamoun, Koura, and Batroun to provide Zakat al-Fitr to poor families in Northern Lebanon .

Lebanon is enduring a humanitarian catastrophe created by a financial meltdown. The poorest of families are now poorer due to the devaluation of their currency and shortages in the supply chain. We feel compelled to help.

The humanitarian need is still dire, and we will keep this payment page open until the Day of Eid.

How Much is Zakat al-Fitr?

Zakat al-Fitr is $12 for one person. It is incumbent upon the head of household to pay for every person in his family.

The following list shows the amount due based on the number of family members:

  1. One person: $12
  2. Two people: $24
  3. Three people: $36
  4. Four people: $48
  5. Five people: $60
  6. Six people: $72

Fidya Sā’im or Kaffāra is the amount to feed one poor person for the day, equaling half the amount of Zakat al-Fitr. This is equivalent to $6.

Please enter the total amount you wish to pay for your Zakat al-Fitr or Fidya in the form below.

Zakat al-Fitr 2024

Donate Fitr to the poor of Northern Lebanon


Here’s how this works:

  • Wellspring Endowment accepts Zakat al-Fitr donations on your behalf.
  • We report the amount collected to the Zakat Fund in Northern Lebanon.
  • Zakat Fund distributes the same amount to the poor on the night of Eid.
  • Wellspring transfers the collected amounts to Zakat fund, assuming all related fees and costs unprovided for.
  • Given that the Zakat Fund and it’s management are more aware of the economic situation and the need of their local populace we have delegated them to determine whether food stuff, in kind, or cash donations are most appropriate during the distribution process.

Use the Stripe form above for payment. When payment is successful, you will be taken to a “Payment Confirmation” page. Please print that page for your records.
