As a result, millions of moslems donate their zakat through zakat institusions. In the management of zakat funds, it is very to obtain the trust from the zakat payers (muzakki). This paper seeks to explore the zakat payers perception of governance and and its effect to the trust in a zakat institution. Perception of accountability, transparency and sharia compliance represents the governance of Badan Amil Zakat Nasional (Baznas), as a zakat management institution. The survey method was applied in this research and with quantitative approach. The paper examines relation among accountability, transparency, sharia compliance and 100 zakat payers’ trust in Baznas. The result of this research showed that the accountability, transparency and sharia compliance influenced a muzakki’s trust in Baznas. Sharia compliance performs the strongest influence on trust among the studied variables. The paper relies heavily depend on a muzakki perception of Governance and Trust. Selection of limited indicators for this research may affect the results of the study. This paper highlights the need of an increasing trust through relevant disclosure of accountability, transparency and shariah compliance information to build a muzakki perception based on the annual report of zakat institution.
