Finding good causes from across the Muslim world
Project URL: goodgate.org
Goodgate is a social enterprise that connects donors to good causes, and promotes transparency, efficiency and performance in philanthropy across the Muslim world. In short, they want to help ordinary people do good, better.
Goodgate.org is the place to find good causes from across the Muslim world, which encompasses over 1.5 billion people, 57 Muslim-majority (OIC) countries, and Muslim minority communities everywhere. They focus on the Muslim world because of its vast development challenges, the urgent need to modernise philanthropy in line with global standards, and because of the unique requirements of the Muslim donor, such as paying zakat. Goodgate aims to help mobilise the goodwill of the Muslim world and harness its philanthropic potential to produce better outcomes for people in need.
By bridging the best of the New Philanthropy movement with the enduring values and the traditional practices of Muslim giving, Goodgate hopes to bring Muslim philanthropy into the 21st century. To further their mission, they will continue to build useful products, services and tools to promote and enable informed, effective giving and social investment.
