Financial Assistance

At ICGA​ we work with multiple organizations to provide aid for vulnerable families and community members. Please fill out the form, so a volunteer can reach out to assist you.

ICGA provides financial and humanitarian assistance to our community members in need, and is a part of the Greater Austin Muslim Relief Committee (GAMRC). We support all 8 categories of Zakat as highlighted in the Quran in Surah at-Tawbah, Ayah 60:

The alms are meant only for the poor and the needy and those who are in charge thereof, those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free those in bondage, and to help those burdened with debt, and for expenditure in the Way of Allah and for the wayfarer. This is an obligation from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.

The GAMRC was formed in 2014 to coordinate the zakat (charity) work in the Greater Austin area, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Pflugerville, and Lake Travis area.

GAMRC coordinates with major charity organizations in Austin to provide a wide range of services to support the need in the Austin Community and heavily relies on your financial support. The following are some of the services:

  • Helps support the need to pay rent, electricity, food and some cases of urgent debts and medical expenses.
  • Provides support to domestic violence cases, single moms, widows, and orphans.
  • Provides a food basket twice during the blessed month of Ramadan.
  • Operates a space in a low-income complex for refugee kids to attend quran classes and educational programs.
  • Distributes Eid gifts, and food and fruit baskets.
  • Helps facilitate furniture, car, food, and other donations between the donors and those in need.
  • Collects and distributes Zakaat Ul Fitr before Eid Ul Fitr prayer.
  • Collects and distributes Udhiya (Qurbani) meat during Eid Ul Adha
  • Connects community members with those in need to provide fun activities during Eid and during school breaks for the students in need
  • Provides educational support to the less fortunate by reaching out to community volunteers. The Committee currently handles 10 to 12 tutors that provide excellent education to underserved students.
  • Provides chrome books to low income students to keep up with online learning.

We encourage you to donate your sadaqa and zakat to ICGA to be able to continue supporting the work that the GAMRC is doing to serve our community
