Webcast description

Cryptocurrency users are the fastest growing donor demographic and there are more than 100,000 Bitcoin millionaires. Yet many cryptocurrency investors remain unclear how or if they can give away these currencies, and nonprofits are unsure how to navigate this new, sometimes volatile, giving landscape.

As part of this webcast, participants will hear how gaining access to the crypto community of givers ensures success in the next generation of fundraising, diversifies revenue and demonstrates a willingness to innovate, and can introduce your organization to a larger range of (often first-time) donors.

  • The common traits of cryptocurrency donors and ways to identify them
  • Simple ways to accept cryptocurrency without wasting time or resources
