Milaap is India’s largest crowdfunding platform for personal and social causes. Our mission is to make it easier for people to raise money online for the needs and causes that matter to them, their loved ones, their neighborhood and larger community.
Our community of donors and fundraisers come from 130+ countries across the world and have raised over INR 300 Crores for 100,000 unique campaigns and projects across India.

We’re changing the way people think about giving.
