In doing so, an exploratory study at, one of the largest donation-based crowdfunding platforms in Indonesia, was conducted. Data was collected through interviews, email correspondences, and web content analysis while data analysis was conducted through thematic analysis. The findings of this study show that there have been some efforts made by both crowdfunding operator and nazhirs to discharge their accountability to the public. Meanwhile, the absence of existing regulation to waqf crowdfunding in Indonesia could be a threat to waqf accountability.
