Our Mission

Interest-Free Lending, Rooted in Compassion

Beneficent is a non-profit, 100% volunteer-run organization committed to economic empowerment via interest-free debt relief.

We provide compassionate lending to uplift individuals with interest-free loans to cover payments, such as but not limited to, credit card bills, payday loans, or outstanding fees as a result of recent job loss. We also exist as an educational institution dedicated to empowering individuals with personal finance fundamentals and discouraging overreliance on debt, rather than simply providing a short term solution to an ever-growing problem in our society - heavy debt burdens worsened by compounding interest, resulting in a debt trap.

We use ethical principles from Islamic finance which aim to replace interest-based loans to prevent the burden on the indebted and end the debt cycle. We aim to empower Canadians to build strong networks and encourage self-reliance in a communal setting. We are committed to serving those in need, irrespective of religion, creed, or background. We believe this service is not only important, but necessary, and we appreciate the support we receive from all those who are involved in our cause.
