NFT Philanthropy

NFTs have proven to be a game changer for philanthropy. They are a powerful force for good that have helped raise and donate millions of dollars to both global and local causes.

It works like this: Take the simplicity of donating crypto to a charity, add the unique beauty of non-fungible art, and mix in the collective enthusiasm of passionate online communities, and you get the perfect recipe for charitable giving in the 21st century.

This do-good, grassroots phenomenon is blooming right before our eyes. As you read this, more and more nonprofit organizations are teaming up with NFT projects, marketplaces, platforms and studios to bring awareness to and fundraise for important causes.

Can art change the world? Yes it can, and we have the proof: from planting millions of trees to feeding families in need, NFTs are a powerful force for social impact.

If this is where the NFT revolution is heading, we’re glad to be doing our part to connect the NFT community with thousands of charities.



Right now, dozens of NFT projects are giving away some or all of their proceeds to nonprofit organizations. If you’ve purchased an NFT in the past year, there’s a chance you’ve helped make a positive impact on the world around you.

At the end of the day, crypto philanthropy isn’t about how much you donate, it’s about creating a culture of giving.

For their role in leading this effort, we’d like to thank NFT artists and projects listed above.
