Tuition Assistance Fundraiser 


The Purpose of our Fundraiser

This fundraiser will be going towards our Tuition Assistance Program to help those students attend an Islamic institution without having to worry about the financial burden it may bear. Every student deserves to be in a healthy and engaging Islamic environment that will help push them to become law abiding Muslim citizens with good character. It is our responsibility to make sure that we do everything in our power to get the youth in an Islamic school. 

Last year we were able to award over $90,000 towards our tuition assistance program to families with financial constraints. Families that will be receiving donations have already gone through a 3rd party and it was proven that their income is not enough to afford tuition. 

Parents want to send their child(ren) to an Islamic school to learn Quran, Islamic Studies and Arabic but unfortunately not everyone is able to afford the cost of a private school. We try to make it as affordable and accessible as possible for our community because we understand the importance of a strong Islamic background and foundation. 

What Will My Donation Do?

Your donations will go towards sponsoring students and making it possible for them to attend an Islamic academy. The money donated will go to families who need tuition assistance. Donating for the sake of knowledge is considered an act of Sadaqah Jariyah because it keeps on giving. When you donate for the sake of education you are investing in the hereafter. We need your help to get as many Muslim students into our school as possible. May Allah reward you for all of your support and efforts. 

When Will the Tuition Assistance Program Go Into Place?

The tuition assistance program will help students for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year.

Is My Donation Zakat Eligible? 

Yes. Money donated towards the tuition assistance program is counted towards zakat.

Supporting our Tuition Assistance Program or Sponsoring a Student at UAF is about so much more than making a simple donation to our school. The Mission of the Universal Academy of Florida is to teach the students the principles and practices of Islam and to prepare them for academic success and good citizenship. The commitment to produce bright students who are conscious of Allah and who maintain Islamic character and high academic standards is our priority at UAF. Every single dollar you give today is Sadaqa jariya (continued charity) that will benefit you, your family, and your community in this life and in the hereafter. 

Allah tells us in the Qur’an that the reward of spending in charity is like “a grain of corn which grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains” (2:261). Therefore we ask you in this blessed month, to support us and donate so we can continue to provide assistance to those families who need it.  No amount is too little and any assistance is greatly appreciated!  

Jazakumullahu Khairan Kathiran for your continued support and generosity. 

 With Sincere Gratitude,

UAF Administration
