At Islamic Relief, we believe in the power of collective action to bring positive change to the lives of those in need.

Get Started Today
Crowdfunding is a fundraising method that involves collecting any amount of money from a number of people to finance a project, initiative, or cause. At Raise for Relief, we provide our community with the opportunity to create a dedicated online web page to fundraise for a specific Islamic Relief project or campaign.
Ready to make a lasting impact? Start your crowdfunding journey with Islamic Relief today. Every campaign, no matter the size, contributes to the greater good and helps us build a world where everyone can thrive.
How It Works
1. Start Your Campaign
Start your own crowdfunding page by choosing a cause that resonates with you.
You can choose from any of the following causes:
Craft a compelling narrative that explains why your chosen cause matters to you. Share personal experiences, anecdotes, and the profound impact your campaign could have on the lives of those in need.
Establish a fundraising goal that reflects the impact you aim to make. Whether big or small, every contribution adds up to make a significant difference.
After you submit your request, our Raise for Relief Team will provide you with your unique campaign link within 1 - 2 business days!
2. Engage Your Network
Spread the word! Utilize your social networks, friends, family, and colleagues to amplify your campaign. The more people involved, the greater the impact.
Your unique campaign link will be yours to share with anyone and everyone!
3. Track Your Progress
Keep your supporters informed about the progress of your campaign. Regular updates foster a sense of community and transparency, building trust among your donors.
The Power of Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding is more than just raising funds; it's about building communities, fostering collaboration, and creating positive change. Your campaign has the potential to transform lives, provide essential resources, and contribute to the well-being of those in need.
Why Should I Crowdfund?
Celebrate with a Purpose:
Celebrate life's milestones with a purpose by dedicating birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, or other joyous occasions to a cause close to your heart. Instead of traditional gifts, invite your friends and family to contribute to a crowdfunding campaign that leaves a lasting impact on the lives of those in need. Your celebration becomes a beacon of hope and positive change.
Sadaqah Jariya, or continuous charity, holds a special place in Islam. Crowdfunding for ongoing projects allows you to establish an everlasting charitable legacy, for yourself, someone you love, or someone who is no longer with us. Your contributions continue to benefit communities, provide essential resources, and create positive change long into the future.
Multiply Your Good Deeds with Friendly Competition:
In the spirit of Sadaqah Jariya, each act of generosity in your crowdfunding campaign multiplies your good deeds. Foster friendly competition among your social circle for all 30 days of Ramadan!
Enhance Educational Experiences:
For teachers and students alike, crowdfunding offers a unique opportunity to enhance educational experiences. Support school or university initiatives by raising funds that go beyond the classroom, contributing to Islamic Relief community projects. Your campaign becomes a catalyst for a well-rounded and enriched learning environment.
Small businesses play a crucial role in shaping communities, and collaborating with Islamic Relief through crowdfunding is a powerful way to align your business values with impactful humanitarian causes. By creating a crowdfunding page, your business can not only raise awareness but also contribute to the betterment of lives around the world.
In the workplace, supporting competitions or challenges through crowdfunding fosters team spirit and collaboration. Colleagues coming together for a shared cause not only boosts morale but also strengthens the sense of community within the workplace.
Elevate Your Events:
Transform your gatherings into meaningful occasions by incorporating a fundraising element. Whether it's a community dinner, a charity bake sale, or any other event, crowdfunding allows you to go beyond the immediate joy of the occasion and channel the collective enthusiasm into support for a humanitarian cause.
Seize the Moment:
Sometimes, the desire to make a positive change strikes spontaneously. Crowdfunding provides a flexible platform for those who feel compelled to act on their compassion in the moment. Whether responding to a current crisis, or aiding with long term development efforts, your spontaneous act of kindness through crowdfunding can make an immediate difference.
Spontaneous acts of kindness have the power to inspire others to take action. Your impromptu campaign can create a domino effect, encouraging more people to contribute to causes they are passionate about, amplifying the overall impact.
No matter the reason, your crowdfunding journey holds the potential to bring about positive change.
