Zakat is one of the fundamental principles of Islam and central to develop an economic system by enhancing socio-economic development. The importance of proper management and governance are challenges for these institutions. This study examined the determinants of the adoption of good governance practices in Zakat institutions in Padang, Indonesia. A total of 51 questionnaires were analyzed out of 135 that had been distributed. The data were analyzed using the Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS) for descriptive statistics and the hypothesis testing. The results showed that only size of Zakat institutions was related positively and significantly to the adoption of good governance principles in Padang, Indonesia. The age of the Zakat institution also had a positive, significant relationship with performance. The study also found that the level of adoption of good governance practices in Zakat institutions in Padang was quite low.
