Zoomaal Guidelines



  •  All or nothing

    Every project campaign must have a funding goal and a deadline. If you aren't able to reach your funding goal by the deadline, all the money will be returned back to the original funders. However, you are able to divide your goal into Milestones by setting your minimum goal, and explaining what you will be able to do when you reach it, and your overall goal and what else you will be able to do when you reach it. You can also set other milestones in between your initial and your final goals. You will be able to collect all funds that match or exceed your first milestone.

  •  Projects only

    A project should have a defined goal and should not be open-ended. Some examples of projects that are eligible to crowdfund on Zoomaal are: writing a book, creating a prototype for a product, making a short-documentary, or starting a community developmental project.

  •  Must be an accepted category

    Zoomaal accepts projects that fall within the following categories: Animation & Comics, Architecture & Design, Arts, Community, Dance, Education, Environment, Fashion, Films & TV, Food, Games, Inventions, Live & Social Events, Missions & Endeavors, Music, Photography, Research, Software & Web, Theater, Writing & Poetry.

  •  No personal funding

    Zoomaal does not allow projects that request funding for personal goals. E.g. buying a new laptop, or paying university tuition fees. However, if you are, for example, going to the Himalayas to put your country flag there, this is counted as an endeavor that doesn't just benefit you and can be posted on Zoomaal.

  •  No charity

    Zoomaal defines a charity project to be unsustainable, and collecting funds to give them away to a certain group of people or for a certain cause without any maintainable outcomes. Our mission is to promote innovation, creativity & sustainable development in the Arab world that is why we do not accept charity projects. Zoomaal also welcomes projects by NGOs and Nonprofits that have impactful and sustainable outcomes.

  •  No prohibited content

    Zoomaal does not accept projects that encourage the consumption of alcohol or tobacco, directly call for political or religious movements, or pornographic content.
