Milaap is India's leading crowdfunding platform for personal and social causes. Our community of donors and lenders come from 120 countries across the world, and have contributed over Rs 90.18 Cr supporting 49,310 projects across India. Over the last five years, Milaap has become the preferred platform for people to raise and contribute for the causes they care for in India.
Milaap began in 2010, as a microlending platform for the rural poor. Carefully selected field partners identify beneficiaries who take loans for education, basic amenities and capital for their micro and small businesses. It slowly metamorphosed into a larger platform to allow individuals and charities showcase their initiatives.
Milaap Open was launched in October 2014, and it has helped thousands of champions raise funds for their personal causes, for their friends and family and for causes of national importance. These include crowdfunding for charities, medical expenses, education, volunteering and fellowships, neighbourhood, emergencies, natural disasters, sports, documentaries, arts, and animals rescue projects benefiting individuals or communities in need.
We are a tech-for-good company. We charge 5% fee, all of which is invested in building better tools and support for donors and champions, monitoring progress and sharing the impact of the contributions, making it a win-win for everyone.
Our work at the intersection of internet and social good has received the backing of funders such as Vinod Khosla, Yunus Social Business Fund, DBS Bank, Kiva to name a few, and recognition from Economic Times - Top 5 social enterprise of the year - 2014 and 2015 and Forbes 30under30 in 2014.
