Show your generosity this season!

Bag Season

Donate to more than 1,000+ charitable organizations during our huge end-of-year crypto fundraising campaign.

The Giving Block has raised millions of dollars for charities accepting donations in Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies.

This year, we set out to raise $100,000,000 in crypto donations for charities. To date, we’ve raised over $50,000,000 and have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the crypto community.

Because the average crypto donation made to charities on our platform this year is $10,000, our #BagSeason goal is to convince 5,000 crypto donors to make a $10,000 crypto gift to the Crypto Adoption Fund, Impact Index Funds, or individual charities.

Regardless of how big your bag may be, we hope you’ll donate what you can to support these amazing crypto-ready charities. Let’s show the world that crypto is the most powerful force for good on the planet.

‘Tis the Season
(for Crypto Giving)

Your charitable contribution means the world to someone in need.

Did you know? Crypto users are the fastest-growing donor demographic in the world today.

From November 30 through the end of the year, you can make history by participating in the biggest crypto fundraising campaign to date. Donations made during Bag Season support more than 1,000 charities that accept donations in BTC, ETH, and more than 50 other cryptocurrencies.

Help us reach our goal of processing $100M in crypto donations by December 31, all while maximizing crypto’s positive impact on the planet.
