In the spirit of giving and donating during the holy month of Ramadan, the Information Technology Authority (ITA) is continuing to raise awareness about the Donations Portal for Charitable Organizations. This portal greatly simplifies the act of making donations to a charity of one’s choice by offering the opportunity for citizens and residents to do so online.

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. As it is Ramadan and in anticipation of the celebration of Eid Al Fitr, the ITA invites all citizens and residents in the Sultanate of Oman to donate to these aid organizations via the donations portal.

The bilingual online portal [] is designed for transparency, convenience, simple and user-friendliness. The Donations Portal guiding principles allows 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 and the Android Google 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.
