Want to know who’s cooler at using technology to raise money than your average well-funded university or nonprofit?
Malala, that’s who. Also, the United Way. The Count Basie Center for the Arts, Wake Forest University, Cushing Academy, and 200+ other nonprofits that have signed up with The Giving Block to accept cryptocurrencies.
“Oh, cryptocurrency. Pfft!” you might be thinking. “That’s not going to be a thing.”
If you were working in fundraising in the late 1990s, you might remember that the same thing was said about taking donations online. Using credit cards! Over the internet! Like it was space age tech from Mars. Online giving? No way.
Accepting cryptocurrencies is the same thing, and it’s already old news for some (especially considering the length of the news cycles these days).
