Donate During NY Blockchain Week to Fight COVID-19


It's May, which means it's time for New York Blockchain Week, and this year we are all at home attending events like Consensus and Ethereal Summit virtually. The Giving Block has joined forces with Coindesk, Ethereal Summit & Gitcoin to stand together and fundraise collectively for nonprofits on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19 with the goal of raising $100k+ (This is in addition to the $500k+ already raised as part of the #cryptoCOVID19 campaign).


Donating is simple, just visit the campaign page on Coindesk here. You can donate crypto or fiat to the following nonprofits (ETH/ERC-20 tokens are also matched through quadratic funding thanks to Gitcoin!):


The following are also taking fiat donations:

  • Action Against Hunger

  • International Rescue Committee

  • Meals on Wheels

  • Doctors without Borders

  • Operation Masks

  • United Way
