Cryptocurrency Charities

Many charities now accept anonymous Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency donations, so if you feel like giving a little of your profit to your favourite charities and good causes, here is a list below of Charities that accept Cryptocurrency donations. If you like any of the charities below we suggest giving them a call (due diligence) and asking them some questions to see where/how they spend the donations.

The water Project

Once you go to the link above there is a page detailing exactly what is needed to donate.

What does The Water Project do?

“The Water Promise” combines high tech monitoring and local repair teams to help ensure that safe water isn’t just provided… but that it’s reliableover time. We post smart-phone collected data from our water points in Africa online and in real-time for all to see – when things break and every day that water flows!

We like that they are very transparent about where your money goes and how it is spent and what is actually achieved. In light of the Oxfam scandals we found this a welcome refreshing change!

Bitcoin donations will be used to fund a fully monitored water project or help maintain one. And like Bitcoin, this new tech will provide unmatched transparency and accountability in our work.

We liked that you can chose how many people you wish to help and it is automatically changed for you into BTC amounts. Use the QR code or the web wallet address and send from your wallet to theirs.

As you can also see above you can donate anonymously or get a tax receipt back for your accountant and claim back for anything you give.

‘All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Please retain all receipts for tax purposes. ‘

They have a wonderful App, which you can download onto your smartphone and see where your money is being spent.

What are they planning to do with your Bitcoin?

‘TWP is currently the lead charity partner of the http://www.bitgivefoundation.org/bitcoin-charity-2-0-initiative/. Together with the BitGive team, our Founder – Peter Chasse, has been working to develop the ideas for incremental grant making and radical transparency first noted in his invitation to the cryptocurrency community in early 2014.’

‘We’re co-developing a bitcoin powered platform to enable small and highly transparent international payments to in-country partners for maintenance and repair of broken down water points. And that platform will be available for any charity to use in the coming months.’

We did some digging around and it seems they are a good charity and have high reviews regarding their on-going work. Follow this link if you would like to check yourselves that this is a worthwhile organisation to give to. https://greatnonprofits.org/org/the-water-project-inc
