About GlobalSadaqah

Established in 2018, GlobalSadaqah has been actively involved with managing and disbursing Islamic social finance funds across the charity ecosystem. As it delved deeper into the social activities of Islamic Economy, it became clear that there was a huge amount of Islamic charity being donated, yet the impact on the Muslim communities is so low in comparison and they remain the poorest and most needy globally. GlobalSadaqah was born with a mission to give a solution to this problem by being transparent in the usage of funds, impact tracking and timely updates.

Since its inception in 2018, GlobalSadaqah has been providing high-tech solutions for corporates, financial institutions, charitable organizations, and other government entities involved and are the nucleus of the Islamic Social Finance ecosystem, providing CSR, Zakat, and Purification Fund management services for Corporates as well as Wealth Management and Estate Planning Services for High-Net-Worth Individuals.

GlobalSadaqah is one of the first platforms in Malaysia to have established a reputable gateway which the donors can trust to take their money directly to those in need on the ground through our reputable and verified partners with a focus on maximizing direct impact and long term sustainability for the beneficiaries. GlobalSadaqah creates social impact by bringing together a multitude of stakeholders such as individual and institutional donors, corporates, international humanitarian and development agencies, religious authorities, and governments.

The Market Situation - Islamic Social Finance Opportunity

The Problem:

  • Underserved Market - There are few platforms with expertise in Islamic charity nuances, culture and behaviours. High Net-Worth (HNW) charity is rarely served by their financial advisors. 
  • Huge Volume of Funds - Global Zakat is estimated to be between $230bn and $560bn every year. Only 2-3 per cent of this market is sufficiently served.
  • Demand for Transparency - The global charity system faces increasing pressure to be transparent in its operations. Respondents rank their trust in charities as 5.5/10.

The Solution: GlobalSadaqah (GS)

One of the world’s leading online Sadaqah, Zakat and Waqf platform, providing the easiest and most effective way to give Islamic Charity. Enabling Zakat eligible campaigns, dollar-for-dollar matching by Corporate Donors, tracking update and impact with trusted and reputable charity partners. GlobalSadaqah brings positive market pressure by ensuring the highest level of transparency and accountability to our donation process by implementing its 3T Values (Trust, Transparency, and Time Efficiency):

  • Trust - GS apply a thorough screening process to verify its charity partners. They also advise on program and project implementation.
  • Transparency - Impact tracking is provided through donor dashboards and regular updates on the progress and outcome of the campaigns.
  • Time Efficiency - By matching corporates, donors and charities on a single platform with dynamic content, GS provide a fast and easy process of giving.
