Boost your donation by an extra 25p for every £1 you donate

Gift Aid It!If you are a UK Taxpayer, providing consent for us to claim Gift Aid on your donation allows us to claim 25% of the value of your donation from the tax that you pay on your income. Gift Aid is then used on our admin costs meaning 100% of your donation goes towards the cause.
By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree that I am a UK Taxpayer and would like Kashmir Orphan Relief Trust to reclaim tax on all donations I have made within the last four years and all donations that I make hereafter. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year, it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I will notify KORT if I want to cancel this declaration, change my name, home address, or no longer pay sufficient tax on my income and/or capital gains.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like KORT to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that KORT will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When KORT receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Donation Total: £100.00 One Time

Donate Your Zakat with KORT 

Families all across the whole of AJK and Pakistan are closely anticipating receiving your Zakat in order to provide their families with sufficient provisions to last.

In the Holy Qur’an, Zakat has not been classed as a burden but rather a means of self-purification of our sins and upliftment of our rank in the creator’s eyes.

“And establish the prayer and give Zakat, and whatever good you send forth for your own selves, you shall find it (the reward) by Allah.” [2:110]

So please don’t delay in giving charity in the path of Allah and be sure to choose a reliable and 100% donation charity like KORT.

You can pay your compulsory 2.5% Zakat ul Maal (Annual Zakat of total wealth) as well as Zakat ul Fitr (Fitrana) through KORT. We will carry your Zakat forth to the needy and deprived in order to create ease to the lives of vulnerable communities.

What Zakat Applicable Appeals Are On At KORT?

1) 2.5% Zakat ul Maal

This is the annual Zakat we must give, of which only 2.5% a person must pay out of their total wealth, land and commodities. Please refer to your local Imam in regard to the specifics of Zakatable items.

Every sane, adult Muslim whose wealth exceeds the current Nisab value must pay this type of Zakat. The Nisab value stands at 87.5g of pure gold or 613g of silver. The value of 613g of silver as of 19th of February 2024 = £362.

2) Zakat ul Fitr (Fitrana)

Pay your Zakat ul Fitr (Fitrana) currently for simply £5. You can pay any time before the Eid al Fitr prayer but the earlier you pay the quicker it reaches the needy on time. Please send your donations by the 15th of Ramadhan to ensure that our recipients will get it in time to celebrate Eid.

3) Orphan Pack

Donate towards an Orphan Pack for £100 and you will be assisting an orphan child with the tools to continue in their studies. An Orphan Pack includes their Uniform, Stationary and any other school books/notebooks required for the academic year.

4) Eid Gift

By donating £45, you will be providing an orphan studying at KORT with a pair of Eid clothes, footwear and a gift. We usually hire vendors to come to the Complex so that the children can come and choose their own gifts. This provides a safer environment for them whilst allowing them the freedom to choose their own gift.

5) Fidya

For those who are unable to fulfil the obligation of fasting during Ramadhan and are uncertain of when they will be able to recover later on in life, Allah has created a means of ease as well as reward. This year the cost of Fidya will remain as £5 per fast or £150 for full Ramadhan and will go towards the poor and needy of Azad Kashmir.

6) Wheelchairs

A wheelchair is currently priced at £60 and your donation towards one at KORT becomes a wheelchair for life for the recipient. We seek out those in need as well as receive applications for wheelchairs, we then assess and provide a location and date for the collective distribution of these. Lastly, we reassure those receiving wheelchairs of a free replacement in the unlikely event of any damage or fault to them.

7) Sewing Machines

Sewing Machines will remain at £35 this year. This enables widows and poor women with a means of sustenance for their families by providing them with a sewing machine as well as a few pieces of unstitched cloth to start off with. We provide a location and date for the collective distribution of these also.

We accept Sadaqah, Lillah, Zakat and Interest donations for these appeals and our registered charity runs on a 100% donation policy

What is Zakat

Zakat is the third pillar of Islam. It requires every sane, adult Muslim whose wealth exceeds the current nisab value must pay Zakat, which is 2.5% of the individual’s total wealth.

Nisab is the minimum value of total wealth one must possess in order to pay Zakat. It is defined as the value of 87.5g of pure gold or 613g of silver. Most scholars favour the lower value as it means that more people can pay Zakat and therefore there are more beneficiaries.

The value of 613g of silver as of 18 February 2021=£392 (GBP)

Zakat is both a spiritual duty and a vital part of the Islamic social welfare system. Zakat is more than just a payment or a random act of charity. It’s a unique form of religious social welfare which benefits the whole community.

Zakat donations made to KORT are usually spent on the orphan children in our care. However, when we have enough funds to sustain the orphan children in our care, any surplus Zakat donations are used on the following Zakat applicable appeals/projects we may have on at the time:

– Providing food and essentials packs to needy Zakat eligible families in AJK/Pakistan.

– Providing wheelchairs to disabled Zakat eligible people in AJK/Pakistan.

– Providing sewing machines to Zakat eligible women/widows in AJK/Pakistan.

– Providing winter clothing/blankets to vulnerable Zakat eligible people in AJK/Pakistan.

– Providing homes to vulnerable Zakat eligible families in need of a home following natural disasters in AJK/Pakistan.

Every person who is sane, an adult (reached puberty), Muslim and sahib-un-nisab must pay Zakat as a duty. To be a sahib-un-nisab means you possess more wealth than the level of nisab for a period of one lunar year or more.

  • Gold and silver, including ornaments or jewellery containing gold and/or silver
  • Cash held at home or in bank accounts
  • Stocks and shares owned either directly or through investment funds-Money lent to others
  • Business stock intrade and merchandise
  • Agricultural produce
  • Livestock animals such as cows, buffalo, goats, sheep and camels
  • Produce of mines
  • Pensions-Property owned for investment purposes

You can pay Zakat at any time of year, but many people choose to do so during the holymonth of Ramadan when the reward for our good deeds is multiplied. This is amplifiedfurther during Laylatul Qadr, the Night of Power, when good deeds are amplified in value bya thousand times. Also, manypeople give Zakat during Ramadan each year because it’s easyto track the progress and end of the lunar year, ensuring that no Zakat payments aremissed.

There are eight categories as outlined in the Qur’an: The poor, those indebt, thewayfarer, those in the cause of Allah (SWT), the needy, those whose hearts are to bereconciled, to free those in captivity and those who collect and distribute Zakat payments.

Please refer to your local imams for further questions relating to Zakat.
