Our mission is to be the unifying federation of Islamic organizations of greater Chicagoland, the leading advocate of Muslim community interests and a catalyst for enriching American society.
This year, help make a real difference through your donation. Communities across Chicago can have access to fresh meat slaughtered according to Islamic norms. There are no specifications on who receives Qurbani meat, as one doesn’t even have to be Muslim, many of the recipients are poor, elderly, or underprivileged. Have the ease of mind knowing that your contributions had such a significant influence on decreasing hunger, even if only for a short time.
“A person is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbor goes hungry.” (Hadith, Bukhari)
Every single one of us makes sacrifices throughout our lives to support our friends, family, and neighbors. By giving up what we have to aid those in need, we provide vital solidarity and hope. You can help distribute meat to a family in need during Eid by doing Qurbani.
Your contributions will help cover the costs that take place behind the scenes including process of transportation, administration costs and distribution to all communities. CIOGC will ensure the meat is portioned and distributed to communities and food pantries who need it most.
The most holy days of the year are the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah, which Allah favors (SWT). As a result, by supporting CIOGC you can benefit from this wonderful month. As Allah explains in His Sacred Book:
“So turn in prayer towards your Lord and sacrifice.” (108:2)
