During our annual Ramadan Appeal, we ask you to support our important work in nurturing the minds and spirits of our students and our community at New Horizon School Pasadena. Your support enables us to continue our work of providing our students with an excellent academic education with firm grounding in moral and ethical values. As with all independent schools, we rely on extra support above and beyond tuition and fees to keep our school moving forward ensuring the best possible up-to-date well-rounded program to prepare our future leaders.


In the spirit of Ramadan, the proceeds from this Ramadan Appeal are shared with a new partner charity each year. Over the past few years, we have helped Friends-in-Deed food pantry, Hope of the Valley Tiny Home Village, Afghan Refugee Relief, and Islamic Relief (earthquake relief efforts in Syria and Turkey). With the recent destruction and devastation in Palestine, we are all feeling the need to help our brothers and sisters there as much as we can. With our school’s commitment to the betterment of community and our Ummah, we will be giving 10% of our Ramadan donations this year to KinderUSA.


Since 2003, KinderUSA is the leading American Muslim organization focused on the health and well-being of Palestinian children. They envision a free, just and peaceful Palestine where children thrive and look forward to a productive future, like children everywhere. “We at KinderUSA remain steadfast in our support for the people of Gaza,” said Dr. Laila Al-Marayati, KinderUSA Board Chair. “We have been with them through many assaults and are ready to respond once again to this cruel humanitarian disaster. Please stand with us.”


As part of our due diligence, we evaluated KinderUSA and other charities with specific criteria in mind with one main goal that the charity has actual humanitarian work taking place under these difficult conditions.

Since October 7, KinderUSA has had their partners and people on the ground and confirm that:

• 5,000 liters of filtered water have been distributed to residents living in Al-Fakhora school, 3,000 liters distributed to residents in Tal Al-Zaatar    school, and 2,000 liters distributed to residents in Al-Rabee school in Jabaliya.

• 5,000 liters of filtered water and 3,600 kg of dates were distributed to residents in Al-Shaymaa St. in Bait Lahia for locals that returned to their    homes in the area.

• 475 families received food parcels in Beit Lahia.

• 300 families received food parcels in Beit Hanoun.

• 3,600 families received bread and food parcels in Khan Younis. They also employed 10 women to bake bread at their homes for distribution.

• 4,314 families received cooked meals and packaged goods in Rafah.

• 250 children received coats and shoes in Rafah.

Your Ramadan donation to New Horizon School Pasadena will make a significant difference for both New Horizon School Pasadena and for KinderUSA.

Donations made to New Horizon School Pasadena are Zakat-eligible. According to scholars, Zakat includes all beneficial works and projects that support the community such as building and supporting schools, mosques, hospitals, etc. By giving to an educational institution, you are fulfilling your zakat obligations especially given the school’s Flexible Tuition Program that allows families of all socio-economic levels to access an excellent education in an Islamic environment.

For last year’s appeal, thanks to your support, we contributed over $6,800 for Islamic Relief towards their earthquake relief efforts in Syria and Turkey.


Thank you for your ongoing support and love for our community!
