In 2018, developers from Dagestan created the first crowdfunding platform for charity – Tooba. The application already has over 100 thousand users and unites more than 70 funds. There are regular camps here such as “House with a Lighthouse”, “Faith”, “Life is a Miracle”, “Blue Bird” and more.
There is no specific direction – through Tooba you can help both seriously ill children and the poor, as well as and pets. Over 500 million rubles were transferred to charitable foundations through the mobile application.
Today, Tooba is one of the largest independent charity projects in Russia to collect donations for targeted and systemic assistance. Users can make a donation both for people in need and for volunteer organizations.
Another distinguishing feature of the project is the lack of monetization. There are no fees for transfers, no interest deductions, and no ads in the application. All money goes directly to the foundations, and the project itself works with the help of users and patrons.
Tooba's ambassadors are Khabib Nurmagomedov, Arman Davletyarov, Sergey Romanovich, and the founder of the Need Help Foundation Dmitry Aleshkovsky. The application works throughout Russia, as well as in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
