The crypto community is massively charitable, giving more than $400 Million worth of crypto donations in 2021 alone. We went to Twitter to ask nonprofits what they’ve recently been able to accomplish by accepting cryptocurrency donations.
Here are some of our favorite responses—nine, to be exact—from crypto-friendly nonprofits of all shapes, sizes, and missions:
