We at FORA are entirely reliant on donations to continue providing educational support to the refugee families we serve, over 95% of whom are Rohingya Muslim.


100% of your Zakat donation will be used for Zakat compliant purchases, along with Zakat funds donated by the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago (CIOGC). Click HERE to read more about FORA's new partnership with the CIOGC.

You could be the reason that another pre-literate 6th grade refugee student 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.

You can also mail a check made out to FORA to our empowerment center address:

6431 N. California Ave, Chicago, IL, 60645. Please write in the memo line that it is for Zakat.
