This research aims to explore potency of corporate zakat in Surabaya and Gresik. This research is a socio legal research. Those two regions were chosen due to industrial basis. The research found that the empowerment is only of zakat focused on the individual zakat. Government corporation and islamic banking distribute corporate social responsibility fund but they don't distribute zakat from their corporations. The potency of corporate zakat is certainly bigger. Therefore, this research suggested regulation model to optimalize the empowerment of individual and corporate zakat due to Law Nnumber 23 of 2011 on The Management of Zakat regulated only the management body of zakat, but not as an obligation.
