Be The Difference
Ramadan is so much more than food, feasting and family. Through the act of fasting, we gain a better understanding of all human suffering. And why we need to show compassion and charity where we can. Ramadan then serves as a reminder, that a fundamental part of our faith – is serving others.
Be The Difference They Need
We create projects that have a lasting impact in the communities we work in. They are designed to foster self-sufficiency and dignity for the people who live there, for generations to come.

Zakat At Home
We set ourselves apart by focusing as much attention on the need for help in Canada itself, as we do abroad. That’s why our policy is to spend 50% of all donations right here at home.
Fidya is paid if you are unable to fast in Ramadan. Kafarah is paid if you break your fast or oath without a valid reason.
Being Worthy Of Your Trust
We work tirelessly to be worthy of your charitable donations. Through the impact we make, the accountability we demand, the approach we take, and the lives we touch.
Last year, our generous donors helped Penny Appeal distribute 1.3 million meals in 25 countries, 4286 meals in the GTA, sponsor 600 Orphans and build 116 deep water wells.
We set ourselves the highest standards for transparency and accountability. From open communication, strong board governance, robust donation infrastructure and transparent financial auditing.
Penny Appeal Canada is powered by a large volunteer youth army, known as #TeamOrange. We encourage today’s youth to become more civic minded and engage in charitable acts.
