IMANI Aid Accomplishes its mission by:
- Bringing immediate relief to the poorest Muslims in the Indianapolis area, in the form of monetary, material, or in-kind assistance.
- Serving as a trusted Zakat and Sadaqat distributor for our Muslim donors.
- Serving as a trusted charity option for donors through financial transparency and strict standards of efficiency and accountability.
- Supporting community based initiatives.
Imani Aid conducted it’s first fund raising dinner in August, 2010, after which our primary source of funds has been individual donations and food sales by a dedicated group of volunteers, Alhumdulillah.
IMANI Aid has worked collaboratively with MAI, Masjid Al Huda, Masjid Al Fajr, Masjid Al Taqwa, and Masjid Al Mumineen to try and help those in need and also to ensure that we are not duplicating our efforts thereby distributing funds fairly and equitably to those in need with the Help and Guidance of Allah(SWT).
