Mission

The us-Sunnah Foundation is a 501c3 charity, registered in the US and Indonesia. All donations are tax deductible and eligible for donation of zakat. We are volunteer based and all operations are funded through endowments which allow us to have a 100% donation policy, that every dollar donated goes to the projects you donate for without overhead. We focus on long-term projects that are fully self-sufficient once built to help the needy for hundreds of years to come. We offer a wide range of services and programs to provide urgent assistance to the needy as well as long-term solutions where the requirement is greatly needed.

WHERE WE WORK

The us-Sunnah Foundation operates in Indonesia where 51% of the country are designated as living in poverty of under $1 per day and over 8 million children suffer from malnutrition due to extreme poverty and its effects on society. We are based in Tangerang, Indonesia which is part of the Jakarta area, the second largest city in the world after Tokyo.

HOW WE WORK

The us-Sunnah Foundation is focused on long-term solutions while also providing emergency relief. Charities often collect donations to help out with one time donations. While this gives more in the short term it does little to relieve the root of the problem the poor face and are highly inefficient compared to long-term solutions. Through using donations on purchasing rice fields to generate rice harvests or constructing low-income apartments which receive monthly rent income for hundreds of years to come you can establish reliable and ongoing assistance to the needy.

An example of this strategy is in our projects to build the low-income apartments. For the same cost as 20 one-time food packages you can establish recurring income to buy a food package every month. In less than 2 years the donation will have fed the same amount of people, but it continues many more years multiplying the amount of good every donation can do.

Additionally these projects allow us to be apart of the communities more than larger organizations doing just food distribution. We are able to establish educational programs, job training, business startup, youth outreach, community betterment, emergency aid and more for the local communities to drive them to self-sufficiency while having stable and increasing resources to distribute food. Being a part of these communities and working with the local leaders and government census workers we can also identify the truly most needy better than any outside organizations and be even more efficient and effective.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Establish ongoing and permanent aid for the needy.

Use to donations towards establishment of endowments (waqf) instead of temporary assistance that disappears.

We own local rice fields and low-income apartments with volunteers and community connections.

Currently own 2 rice fields and 8 low-income apartments in our modest first year of full operations. Our expansion depends completely on donations.
