Habib University garners support for its mission through contributions, Zakat, corporate social responsibility partnerships, and endowments from a dedicated community of Mohsineen. This community, spanning the globe with a significant presence in the USA, UK, and Canada, plays a vital role in supporting the university's initiatives.

HUF Pakistan organizes fundraising activities such as fundraisers, online donations and endowments from Pakistani corporates as well as individual donors.

85% of the total student body at Habib University receives some form of financial assistance in the form of merit scholarship or financial aid.

Not only is Habib University the pioneer of liberal arts education in Pakistan but also provides a contextually relevant education grounded in South Asian context rather than the Western one. Moreover, the way that Habib University’s curriculum and campus is designed, it encourages a student-centered curriculum rather than a teacher-centred one to promote independent thinkers and decision makers.

Donations are either used to provide named scholarships or become part of our open financial aid which is disbursed to students in the form of need-based financial aid or merit scholarships.

Certainly, Zakat can be allocated to support students' higher education. In fact, among the eight categories of Zakat recipients mentioned in the Quran, one is "Ibn al-Sabil," which encompasses travelers and students requiring financial aid. This category specifically addresses students pursuing education without the financial means to do so independently. For additional information, please visit the provided page.

The process of collecting and distributing Zakat at HU adheres to Shariah principles and Habib University has received certification from a Shariah advisor affiliated with Jamia Darul-Uloom Karachi.

We maintain separate bank accounts for Zakat collection and periodic disbursement. Annual Shariah audits are also conducted to ensure transparency. Only Students who are eligible for Zakat are given scholarships or financial aid from Zakat.

Visionaries are individuals who commit to a monthly contribution of USD 100 or above. Benefactors are those who contribute between USD 50 and less than 100 monthly. Supporters are contributors giving between USD 25 and less than 50 monthly. Friends are supporters contributing between USD 15 and less than 25 monthly.
