About The Giving Block

The Giving Block makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency fundraising easy for nonprofits. Empowering mission-driven organizations, charities, universities, and faith-based organizations of all sizes to leverage crypto technology to achieve their mission.

Our Story

The Giving Block was founded in 2018, when our co-founders saw new fundraising opportunities emerging from the cryptocurrency landscape.

With the cryptocurrency bull market of 2017-2018, millions of people around the world made a fortune investing in and trading cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ether.

But while hundreds of millions of dollars in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies flowed to charitable causes, few nonprofits were actually equipped to accept those donations. And among investors, it wasn’t yet common knowledge that they had (and still have) a huge tax incentive to donate cryptocurrencies directly to nonprofits.

In short, nonprofits and cryptocurrency donors needed something that didn’t exist: a way to find each other easily so they could change the world together.

With backgrounds in financial management, cryptocurrency, and nonprofit fundraising and operations, co-founders Alex Wilson and Pat Duffy set out to create a platform to help nonprofits to accept crypto donations and allow donors to quickly identify crypto-ready charities.

The Giving Block has become the go-to solution for nonprofits seeking cryptocurrency donations because we:

  • Power a best-in-class donation platform for nonprofits to accept cryptocurrency
  • Build community to raise awareness of crypto’s potential to fuel social good causes
  • Create viral campaigns that empower nonprofits to connect with this new pool of donors

In just a few years, The Giving Block has grown by leaps and bounds. Today, donors have 1000+ nonprofits to choose from, and it’s easier than ever to begin accepting cryptocurrency donations.
