The Implementation of Humanistic Online Charity
Agus Syihabudin, Shohib Khoiri, Alamta Singarinbun

Institut Teknologi Bandung


To meet the basic needs of life, clothing, food, and shelter is the right of every individual. Every individual has the right to have a decent life, which is clothing to cover his/her body, eating to fulfill the needs of stomach and housing as a place to shelter. However in the real condition, not every person has a good fortune, also there are not a few of people who live with shortcomings. Religion provides a solution to overcome this problem, namely by presenting the concept of charity. The concept of charity in Islam is called zakah, infaq, or sadaqah. In Christianity, it is called tithing. In Hinduism, it is called Punia. In addition to these religions, each religion has its own concept of charity, which is to spend little money or funds to be given for those in need. Charity in the technical distribution can be done individually (man to man) between donors and recipients, there is also charity which is done collectively, namely by the establishment of charitable institutions that collect funds from donors and distribute them for those in need. Along with the development of information and online technology, many charitable institutions are now using the technology. This method provides convenience not only for these institutions, but also for donors, so donors can simply use the online application to donate. However, the use of online technology in addition to providing a positive impact, there are several disadvantages, including the lack of humanity. An example is the loss of the emotional side between donors and recipients, the lack of conformity in the halal regarding to the sources of the funds, and lack of information on the distribution of funds by those charitable institutions. Seeing these conditions, it is required a model in online technology that does not exclude humanist values which are the real spirit and real implementation of charity, so the use of online technology in charitable fund collection and channeling by fundraiser institutions can be done maximally.
