We at FORA are entirely reliant on donations to continue supporting refugee families.


You could be the reason that another pre-literate 6th grader gets accepted into our program, learns to read and write, catches up to grade level, and gets on track to college and beyond.

FORA is a registered 501c3 organization, meaning you can list your payment to us as a charitable donation on US federal taxes. Our EIN is 83-2337377. FORA holds a Silver Guidestar Seal of Transparency.

All donations (up to $200,000 of donations) will be matched until Feb 15, 2022.

Donate Zakat

100% of donations submitted through our Zakat page will go toward Zakat-compliant purchases, to supplement our Zakat donation from the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago (CIOGC).

Employer Matching

FORA is a registered charity through Benevity, used by many corporations for employer donation matching. If your workplace is not part of Benevity and you still want to see if your donation can be matched, reach out to your HR department!
