The Sultanate’s only donation portal www.donate.om has achieved a remarkable record this year by 9389 electronic transaction entries worth of O.R. 290,642 based on the last August update by the ePayment Portal at the Information Technology Authority (ITA). Donations made for Oman Charitable Organization and Al Rahma Charity Team topped the list with donations reached up to O.R. 160.371 and O.R.76.068 respectively. Dar Al Atta’a Charity comes third with O.R. 50.789. The donation portal remains available as new donors are welcomed to further aid and support the less privileged especially for the ongoing crises as in Syria and Gaza.
Choosing from many participating charity organizations in the Sultanate, the portal makes it easy to donate with a single click from anywhere and at any time. And yes, contributions made via the website do directly benefit the selected charity.
The bilingual online portal [www.donate.om] is designed for transparency, convenience, simple and user-friendliness. The Donations Portal guiding principles allow citizens as well as the residents of the Sultanate to make direct donations using their bank credit cards to the respective bank accounts of the charitable organizations. High priority was given to security ensuring all transactions are carried out accurately and safely within seconds through the closely monitored portal to protect people’s interests.
As an alternative to visiting the Portal online, donors now have the option to donate via the mobile app, which is easily downloaded from the online portal or Android’ s Play store.
Both the portal and the app support humanitarian efforts for charity by eliminating the donor’s problems of time and distance using technology. This electronic channel connecting donors and beneficiaries processes charitable payments completely electronically utilizing the ePayment Gateway operated by the ITA.
