Ramadan Charity Clarity Guide

The 2023 guide is here

The Muslim community has been recognized for their remarkable generosity, with British Muslims raising over £1bn per year today, and that could grow to over £4bn by 2050.

Last year we wrote the first edition of the Ramadan Charity Clarity Guide and its core intent was to encourage charitable donations in a different way: donations that are well-informed and focused on creating a significant impact.

This year we have continued in that tradition but with significant changes. Rather than covering 20 organisations, we are covering just 5.
