Cryptocurrency is Going Mainstream. For Nonprofits, Too.

Every nonprofit needs to know why cryptocurrency donations are the next big opportunity.

Why Accept Cryptocurrency Donations?

Cryptocurrencies are on their way to achieving mainstream status. And believe it or not, but nonprofits like Save the Children led the way by being among the first institutions to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Today, charitable organizations of all sizes are fundraising cryptocurrency, from one-person teams to international operations.

Nonprofits that take cryptocurrency donations today will have the early-mover advantage on their peer organizations. That means greater access to a relatively young, affluent crypto donor base that is:

  • Increasing its wealth via the growing crypto market cap, which hit an all-time-high of $3T in 2021
  • Experiencing exponential user growth, similar to the wave of Internet adoption in the late 1990s
  • Excited about using cryptocurrency and NFTs as a way to support their favorite causes
  • More generous on average than their cash donor counterparts

“Crypto is the only asset class that people seem to be super passionate about. I get phone calls and texts about it constantly from donors. I didn’t expect as much passion around it. But I believe that their passion drives generosity.”
