Cryptocurrency donations—and the number of nonprofits equipped to receive them—are on the rise. Is your organization ready for the future of fundraising?
With hundreds of millions of crypto users worldwide, The Giving Block has enabled more than 1,600 nonprofits to receive over $450 million in donations. All that to say, Crypto Philanthropy is not to be overlooked! It's now the fastest growing revenue channel for nonprofits everywhere, including United Way Worldwide, Save the Children, and the American Cancer Society. From Bitcoin to NFTs, these new currencies are changing the way people give and how nonprofits raise funds.
In this session, Mike McLean, Head of The Giving Block Institutional, will explain the benefits of Crypto Philanthropy and its impact on the nonprofit community. You will walk away with a greater understanding of the new currency landscape and how your nonprofit can get involved, should you so choose.
Please note that though The Giving Block is a vendor, this program will be informational only. Your contact information will not be shared with the company.
