The Problem

It’s becoming harder and harder for those responsible for fundraising, development and advancement at their organizations to fundraise sufficiently.  


Traditional donor bases are aging, and individual donations are decreasing.  More and more nonprofits are tasked with diversifying fundraising streams, increasing revenue channels and broadening their donor base. 

The Solution

At The Giving Block, we help nonprofits fundraise with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, ZCash and more.  According to the IRS, approximately 8% of all adults in the United States have some form of taxable cryptocurrency holding, meaning at least 12,000,000 people are potential cryptocurrency donors.  


This emerging channel of tax deductible cryptocurrency donations is largely untapped, young and looking for nonprofits whose missions they wish to support, having donated hundreds of millions of dollars in cryptocurrencies to nonprofits in the last few years. 

The Giving Block Equips Your Nonprofit to Accept and Fundraise Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency Donations and Fundraising Beyond Bitcoin: 

If donors have to convert from other cryptocurrencies into Bitcoin (or $USD), they lose their tax benefit. We support other cryptocurrencies (such as Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, ZCash and more), as well as credit card donations, directly through our widget.

  • The Giving Block will equip your organization to accept tax deductible donations in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and more

  • Easily deploy your customised, drag and drop widget into for your website donation page. 

  • Collect important cryptocurrency donor information for your development team for follow up marketing efforts.  

  • Automatically email all cryptocurrency donors tax receipts as soon as the donation is complete. 

Automatic Conversion of Cryptocurrencies into $USD

Concerned about price volatility of cryptocurrency donations to your nonprofit? We set your organization up so that all cryptocurrency donations are automatically converted to US dollars (or selected other local currencies depending on your jurisdiction), and into your bank account. Or if your gift acceptance policy allows, you can hold some or all of your donations in cryptocurrency.

  • Reduce volatility by having your cryptocurrency donations automatically convert into US Dollars and held safely in an FDIC insured bank account while it moves to your organization's bank.  

Cryptocurrency Fundraising Education & Support

We realize that for the average nonprofit that cryptocurrency fundraising is something bold and new.  We've worked hard to ensure that our cryptocurrency donation solution is, as one client affectionately calls it, "grandma-friendly". Still, we include plenty of training and support for your Development, Marketing, Finance and Legal teams over the lifetime of our relationship, so you're never left to fend for yourself.

  • Turnkey marketing toolkit with crypto community marketing examples, templates and best practices

  • Featured presence on our cryptocurrency fundraising platform

Prompt Setup, Onboarding and Compliance Process

We figured out the compliance process, messaging, wallet setup and integration - so that you don't have to. Not only that - you’ll be dealing with actual human beings the whole way. And, for your donors, our 3-step widget makes donating crypto the easiest way to give.

  • Easy on-boarding through the account setup and compliance process ensuring that your nonprofit meets all exchange compliance requirements. 

  • Free lifetime US based support from actual human beings who understand nonprofits and cryptocurrency fundraising best practices. 

  • Free, automatic updates to your customized donation widget ensuring that your nonprofit is always equipped to take cryptocurrency donations.

Active, Engaged Cryptocurrency Fundraising Campaigns

Soliciting cryptocurrency donations is not like receiving donations from your credit card donors. Often these will be new, younger donors - who need to know that your organization exists, and is ready to accept donations in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, ZCash, or some other cryptocurrency. We help you shine whether it’s Giving Tuesday (AKA #Bitcoin Tuesday), Tax Season, your annual Gala and beyond. We do this by: 

  • Identifying where cryptocurrency donor communities hang out 

  • Develop useful content to serve these emerging donor communities 

  • Recruit influencers and cheerleaders to champion cryptocurrency giving 

  • Activate networks to create a sense of urgency around donating cryptocurrency 

  • Generate excitement around key cryptocurrency giving dates, such as #BitcoinTuesday
