The Basics

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_toggle title=”What is Sadaqah?” style=”round” size=”sm”]Sadaqah means general charity, in cash as well as in actions. A smile or a good deed is Sadaqah.

Sadaqah comes from the arabic root word ‘sidq’ which means sincerity.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is Global Sadaqah?” style=”round” size=”sm”]Global Sadaqah is an Islamic charity crowdfunding platform or marketplace which matches corporate donations and CSR, as well as Sadaqah, Zakat and Waqf from the public to programs and campaigns by our trusted charity partners.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What is Crowdfunding?” style=”round” size=”sm”]The gathering of many people online to financially support a cause, business or individual.

Donation Process

If the charity partner has a tax exemption status, it will be stated at the bottom of the individual campaign page. Note that exemptions are usually limited to donors in the country of origin of the charity partner.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How much of the donation goes to the charity partner?” style=”round” size=”sm”]Two types of fees are deducted from the donated amount, payment gateway fees and platform service fees. The entire remaining amount will go to the charity partner.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why was my debit/credit card rejected?” style=”round” size=”sm”]If your card is rejected, first ensure that all your details (Card No, expiry date, CVV) are entered correctly. Next, check with your bank if there is any issue. If this rejection continues to happen, please email us at info@globalsadaqah.com and we will investigate to solve the issue.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Is my donation secure?” style=”round” size=”sm”]Yes it is. We use secured SSL encryption (SHA256) to transfer information between the donor’s browser and our server. In addition to that, the payment information is only captured by the payment processing gateways, which are protected by additional layers of security. GlobalSadaqah.com does not store any of your payment information.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Can I get a refund after donating?” style=”round” size=”sm”]By default, once a donation is made, it is not reversible on the platform.

However in urgent or special cases, we can assist to request for a refund from the charity on your behalf.[/vc_toggle][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Campaign Process

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_toggle title=”What happens if the goal isn’t reached by the end of the campaign?” style=”round” size=”sm”]We will either a) close the campaign as partially-funded, b) extend the campaign period, or c) cancel and refund all donations. This depends on the charity partner, and the needs of the project. We will only cancel the campaign and give refunds to donors if the project being funded cannot continue.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do I get updates on the campaigns I donated to?” style=”round” size=”sm”]Updates and reports are compulsory for all project partners. Depending on the project, the update can be given quarterly over a period of one year, or upon completion of the project.
