Embracing Ramadan's Giving Spirit 🌟

Ramadan extends beyond fasting; it's a peak season for Zakat and Sadaqah and the strategies below are essential to amplifying your impact this Ramadan.

1. Leaderboard Excitement: Competition & Visibility 🏆

Leaderboard Explained

  • During Ramadan, we have two leaderboards that are updated in real-time, one showcasing campaigns based on the number of unique supporters and the other showing campaigns based on the total amount raised.

Mastering the Leaderboard

  • Eligibility & Rules: Every campaign active during Ramadan is eligible. Only unique donors (with unique emails and credit card digests) count towards your leaderboard score. Donations from LaunchGood features or marketing packages are excluded.
  • Real-Time Updates & Prize Allocation: Standings are updated in real-time, with daily contests resetting at 7:00 pm ET each day. Prizes are awarded daily to the top 10 campaigns in both the 'Most Raised' and 'Most Supporters' categories, globally and in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • $29K Daily Giveaways: If your campaign ranks in both categories or on both Global and Asia-Pacific leaderboards, you'll receive only the higher-value prize. Campaigns can win up to a total of $30,000 USD during the 30 days of Ramadan, excluding prizes won on the 27th day of Ramadan. On this day, prizes are significantly increased: Global prizes are quadrupled and Asia-Pacific prizes are doubled, and the $30,000 cap does not apply.
  • Prize Caps: The global leaderboard prize cap is $30,000 and the Asia-Pacific leaderboard prize cap is $10,000
  • Prize Breakdown: See image below for a breakdown of all prizes up for grabs daily on the Global Leaderboard, and remember these prizes will be quadrupled on the 27th day of Ramadan; so first place will win a whopping $20,000.

2. Referral Programs: Expand Your Reach 💫

The Power of Referrals

  • Leverage the power of referrals to extend your campaign's influence. Encourage your network to invite others to participate in Scheduled Giving, broadening your donor base. Our Ramadan Referral Program rewards each successful referral with financial boosts, significantly magnifying the impact of each donation.

Referral Mastery

To note; a new change this year is that boosts will be paid out in the donor's signup currency.

Plan Now: Referrals are active from 12:00 am ET, February 12, 2024.

Act by March 10: Higher boost amounts are available until 11:59 pm, March 10, 2024.

  • 30-Day Signups: Earn a $100 boost per referral.

Deadline: Don't miss out! The program ends at 11:59 pm ET, March 19, 2024 and remember boosts are paid in the donor's signup currency!

  • Utilizing Team Links: Leverage the team link and share this with your network, making it easy for them to support and refer your campaign.
  • Minimum Donation Changes: We've updated our system to require a $3 equivalent minimum donation in your donor's local currency (except Malaysian Ringgit which is 5 MYR), and correspondingly, any earned boosts will be awarded in the same currency.
  • Excluded Referrals: The following signups are not qualified for a referral boost: Campaign owner, Team member, if donor has signed up for less than the $3 minimum, if donor has signed up for another team link.
  • Scheduled Giving Continues: Donors can continue to sign-up for scheduled giving after March 19 however referrals will no longer be eligible for boosts.
  • Personal Touch: Tailor your referral messages to resonate with your audience. Personalized messages often lead to higher engagement and a stronger sense of connection, encouraging more people to participate in your campaign.
  • Acknowledgment: Always express gratitude towards your donors. Their efforts are crucial in expanding your campaign's reach. With the new detailed status updates for referrals, you can now track and recognize the impact of each referrer more effectively.

Zakat is a key aspect of Ramadan giving. Our platform simplifies the process for both donors and campaigns, enhancing the impact of these vital contributions.
