About Milaap

Milaap is a leading crowdfunding platform in India that empowers individuals and institutions to raise funds for a variety of causes, including healthcare, education, sports, disaster relief, and personal needs. Established in 2010, Milaap has harnessed technology to create a seamless and transparent online giving experience, offering omnichannel availability, round-the-clock donor support, and dedicated account managers for organizers.


Engaging donors is a pivotal success factor for Milaap. Organizers drive traffic to the platform by sharing fundraiser links across various channels, such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and others. Analysis revealed that WhatsApp contributed to 60% of the total platform traffic.


Milaap had been using SMS, emails, and calls to interact with donors and organizers but faced challenges in achieving high delivery and open rates. These obstacles hindered the fundraising process. As Milaap explored new channels for engagement, they needed to address technical hurdles, such as integrating databases for efficient data exchange. Additionally, any solution had to be user-friendly for the support team.


In March 2022, Milaap adopted the WhatsApp Business Platform to facilitate two-way communication with their audience. Leveraging chatbot capabilities, the platform automated essential aspects of the workflow, sending business-initiated messages based on event triggers. This improved organizer engagement by keeping them informed throughout the fundraising journey. Previously, account managers had to make time-consuming phone calls to convey each step.

The solution also enhanced communication with donors, enabling prompt responses to queries. Transactional updates, including donation receipts, transfer notifications, and fundraiser setup confirmations, were sent to both donors and organizers.

Overall, the adoption of the WhatsApp Business Platform and workflow automation significantly boosted user engagement, click-through rates, conversion rates, and payment volumes. It also reduced the response time to customer queries and lightened the workload of the Milaap team.


  • A 2x increase in open rates compared to traditional channels
  • A 10% increase in the overall conversion rate of donors on the platform
