Here is important information you need to know as you make your donations toward Islamic Relief USA’s humanitarian efforts.
Islamic Relief USA™ (“IRUSA”) is a non-profit, non-governmental international relief and development organization organized under the laws of the State of California with headquarters located at 3655 Wheeler Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22304. IRUSA, Tax ID No. 95-4453134, is exempt from federal income tax under 26 U.S.C. Section 501(c)(3), and is a non-profit organization eligible to receive tax deductible donations.
It may take anywhere from 1-5 business days before charges appear on your credit card or bank statement. This may vary per credit card company or bank.
Each donation to IRUSA is tax deductible as and to the extent allowed under applicable law, and represents a contribution to its mission of alleviating poverty and suffering wherever it is found, paying no heed to gender, race or creed.
Islamic Relief USA is committed to providing aid in the country or program that you select. In the event we complete the program, exceed the required funds, or are denied access to a particular country for reasons beyond our control, Islamic Relief USA reserves the right to reallocate your donation to another program where it is needed most.
You may contact IRUSA at 703-370-7202, or toll-free at 1-855-447-1001 for more information.
A portion of your donation will go toward administrative costs.
The default option for donation payment is a one-time transaction. One-time donations will only be processed as authorized for that specific transaction, per the given day.
In cases where recurring direct debit (available for U.S. banks only) or monthly credit giving options are available, you will be given the choice to select your preferred method of giving. By selecting recurring donation options, you authorize Islamic Relief USA to automatically transfer your gift each month from the account you provide—the transaction will appear on your checking account or credit card statement. The monthly charge date shall be the date in which the donation was initially submitted. If the monthly charge date needs to be changed, you may submit an email to email@example.com or call 855-447-1001 and request for the monthly date to be changed.
The financial institution you identify on the donation form is authorized to debit or charge your donation to the account indicated. This authority will remain in effect until you have given Islamic Relief USA at least 10 days notice that this authorization has been terminated. Please understand that you must give advance notice to allow reasonable time for your instructions to be executed. If ever an incorrect amount should be entered into your account, you authorize your financial institution to make the appropriate adjustment on your behalf.
*In cases when a month does not have 30 days, the transaction will be made on the following business day.
You can increase, decrease or suspend your gift by calling 1-855-447-1001 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CREDIT CARD DONATIONS FOR ZAKAT: Please consider adding 2% when using Visa and Mastercard to your total zakat donation—this will compensate for any transaction fees deducted from your donation by the credit card companies, and will ensure that your intended zakat amount is paid in full.
For your convenience, IRUSA offers additional way to donate: *To donate by phone, call 1-855-447-1001. *To donate by mail, make your check payable to Islamic Relief USA, and send it to: P.O. Box 22250, Alexandria, VA 22304

To request a refund, call 1-855-447-1001. Refunds are issued using the original method of payment. If you made your donation by credit card, your refund will be credited to that same credit card.
