Mohammed bin Rashid issues law establishing establishment of Dubai community contributions


The Dubai Community Contributions Establishment seeks to encourage public and private entities to enhance their support for humanitarian causes in Dubai, providing a trusted platform for charitable donations that can help improve people’s quality of life.

In accordance with the law, the establishment is tasked with managing the ‘Jood’ platform (, a central hub dedicated to upholding and strengthening social and humanitarian efforts across Dubai. Aligned with the objectives of Dubai Social Agenda 33, the platform offers individuals and organizations opportunities to contribute to humanitarian, charitable and development initiatives within the framework of Dubai’s establishment policies and current legislation.

The establishment is also tasked with regulating and channeling donations to help the most vulnerable humanitarian cases in Dubai. This involves integrating electronic systems to process support requests and improve service efficiency by documenting and tracking support.

The Law also establishes the organizational structure of the establishment, which is governed by a board of trustees and an executive team.

The Establishment is subject to the legislations of the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities and the Dubai Community Development Authority, and other relevant legislations, which mainly include Law No. (12) of 2017 regulating civil companies in Dubai; Decree No. (9) of 2015 on the Regulation of Donations in Dubai; Decree No. (9) of 2022 on the placement of private public benefit entities established in accordance with legislation under the supervision and audit of the Dubai Community Development Authority; and Executive Council Resolution No. (26) of 2013 on charitable associations, generous Quran memorization centers and Islamic foundations in the Emirate of Dubai.

The President of the Board of Trustees will dictate the decisions necessary for the development of this Law, prior approval of the Board of Trustees. The Law nullifies any other legislation that may contradict it. This new Law comes into force from the date of its publication in the Official Gazette.
