GIVING TUESDAY - Crypto 101 for Nonprofits: Everything You Need to Know to Get Started

Wednesday, May 18, 2022
12:00 pm1:00 pm

Bitcoin. Cryptocurrency. The blockchain. These words were obscure and foreign to most non-techies just a few years ago; now they're on the tip of everyone's tongue. Forward-thinking nonprofits are recognizing that cryptocurrencies can be an important fundraising tool and their timing couldn’t be better: cryptocurrency donations have spiked in recent months and donors are eager to give more.

Join GivingTuesday + The Giving Block on Wednesday, May 18, 2pm ET to learn how to leverage the opportunities around cryptocurrency. This session is a crash course designed for nonprofit practitioners who have zero knowledge of the crypto space. A few things on the agenda:
- What on earth is the blockchain?
- Explaining cryptocurrency in words that normal humans use
- The history of crypto philanthropy
- How to get started accepting cryptocurrencies as donations (and what to do with crypto after you have it)

We’ll hear from Fereshteh Forough from Code to Inspire who will share her organization’s experience in crypto fundraising and we’ll offer a safe space to ask the questions you’ve been too afraid to ask. This session will be recorded but it’ll be much better live! Register below.
