Our Values

Muslims are Incredible

We believe each campaign on LaunchGood is one chapter in the big global storybook of who Muslims are and what they're capable of.

We firmly believe that the global Muslim community is incredible. We believe it has enormous potential. We believe that as a community we have some amazing values that are inspired by our faith and that we have so much to contribute to the beautiful mosaic of the global society.

Too often we are constantly telling others who Muslims are not, that we rarely can tell them who are. We are proud of our heritage as pioneers, inventors, entrepreneurs and bearers of all things good. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "The believer is like a life-bringing rain, wherever they are, they bring benefit." We believe in Muslims doing great work that benefits everyone, not just Muslims.

Prophetic Inclusiveness

LaunchGood is simply here to support Muslims doing great work. We're not interested in getting into polemical discussions, labels, sects, politics, etc.

From a team perspective, we respect differences in opinions and make sure campaign coaches are assigned to campaigns that align with their values.

From a campaign standpoint, that means we take great caution not to stifle campaign creator’s expression or creativity. We believe in creating a safe space for our community to create, develop, and grow.

Campaigns on the site do not represent LaunchGood or the Muslim community as a whole, they’re only one piece of the beautiful, nuanced, and intricate global Muslim community.

Everyone's VIP

From campaign creators, to supporters, to even just simple questions from inquiring users, we believe anyone we interact with is VIP.

We might handle hundreds of donations and campaigns a day, but for that supporter, that donation might be a percentage of their savings that month, and for a campaign creator that might be the one and only campaign he/she creates their whole life, putting all hopes, passion, and drive to make an idea actually happen.

It takes real empathy to believe everyone’s VIP, but we get to practice it everyday.

Emotional Ihsan/Excellence

This means taking ownership for your role and giving it your 120%. When you’re invested emotionally, your work bleeds passion and excellence.  

It means realizing that what you do will have a ripple effect and taking ownership on what kind of lasting impression you want to create.

Be the Giving Hand

Support your team members.

Offer to take the lead or spearhead a new initiative while realizing you have the whole team backing you. Take the load of your fellow team member’s back whether they have finals, a new baby on the way, or just investing in their growth by attending a training.

It Starts At Home

Everyone on our team needs to have been or currently involved in local efforts in their own community.

How can we build a strong ecosystem if we haven’t started the efforts in our own backyards? This also means making sure we’re are amazing family members, supportive siblings, spouses, daughters/sons, and in the service of our families.

Grit

It’s the number one predictable factor for success beyond what resources, skills, or luck anyone has.

 Grit is perseverance, passion, and determination to achieve long-term goals. Our journey is long and the road is laden with  constant challenges. We constantly rely on building strong mental tenacity through patience, and believe in replenishing those reserves with play and a daily self care.

It's All About People

At LaunchGood, we believe people are at the core of everything - and we're always looking for the very best people to join our team!
It's a startup, it's risky, it's unpaid at the moment - heck we barely have time to put something up on the "Join the Team" page!

If we didn't scare you off yet, if you're interested in changing the world and living a meaningful life and joining us on this journey, there are a few ways to get involved:
  1. Fellowship - We've developed an incredibly cool, fun, challenging and rewarding fellowship for aspiring global leaders. Learn more below and apply today!

  3. Open Positions - We believe people always come first, and we're always open to hiring (but extremely selective). Check out our open positions and if you believe you're a great match and interested please contact us!
