Swiss Zakat Foundation
The Swiss Zakat Foundation (“SZF”) is the first institution in Switzerland exclusively focused on collecting and distributing Zakat.
The foundation is based on the core principle that Zakat must be collected and re-invested locally and on the conviction that it has a key role to play for the benefit of Islam and the Swiss Society.
