Giving zakaat to an organisation

Q: I would like to know if paying zakaat through the following service is permissible: 

A: For the zakaat to be valid it is compulsory that the zakaat reaches the recipient. If you are certain that the zakaat given to them reaches the eligible recipients then it is valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
