Contribute to Masjid Bilal’s Continued Growth!
With Masjid Bilal’s growth comes increased financial demands to meet general expenses, and maintenance and programming costs each month. To maintain our current level of operation and promote continued growth, we should all contribute to these expenses.
An efficient way to help the Masjid meet its monthly obligations is for members to donate through automatic withdrawal. To take advantage of this convenient method, you can set up monthly donations online at www.masjidbilalky.org OR you can pick up the designated form in the Masjid lobby, complete it, attach a voided check and put them both in the donation box. The Treasurer will take care of the rest.
