Abstract Purpose – This study aims to examine the factors that affect individuals’ intention of participating in donation crowdfunding in the context of Oman.

The data is collected by online survey and analyses by using the partial least squares technique.

Furthermore, subjective norms and perceived behavioural control positively impact individuals’ intention to contribute to donation crowdfunding.
