Muslims all around the world consider Ramadan the holiest month of the year. It is a time when Muslims fast during daylight hours and spend more time praying and engaging in charitable acts. According to the Muslim Charities Forum, UK Muslims collectively donate over £130 million to charity during Ramadan. This year, GiveMatch, the match-funding technology platform, has partnered with Muslim Aid and Orphans In Need to help them double their impact.
GiveMatch allows people to double their donations through the power of social sharing and influence. When a person donates through the platform, they receive a unique link. If two friends donate through that link, the original donation is doubled. The platform works alongside generous corporate donors to offer match-funding services. Donors can follow their chosen charity’s fundraising journey and see how much is left in the match-funding pot.
Ismael Dainehine, the founder of GiveMatch, stated, “By donating through GiveMatch, people can make their Ramadan donations do double the amount of good. We’re incredibly excited to partner with many fantastic charities this year. With Muslim Aid, Islamic Relief, Orphans In Need, and others coming on board, donors from all backgrounds can match donations for a cause that speaks to them.”
Diana Alghoul, communications manager at Muslim Aid, expressed her appreciation for GiveMatch, stating, “Using GiveMatch, our donors have the opportunity to double the impact of their donations.” Jonaed Afzal, UK Director at Orphans In Need, added, “By partnering up with GiveMatch, we’ll be able to provide twice the amount of support to orphans and widowed families who are in real need.”
