About the Webinar

With the price of Bitcoin tripling this year, donations are on the rise as well. From a tax perspective, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are treated like stock donations, meaning the donor doesn’t have to pay capital gains tax and gets a nice tax write off.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how your nonprofit can be positioned to capture this next wave of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations. We’ll also discuss what nonprofits are already fundraising Bitcoin and what has made their programs successful.

What You'll Learn...

  • Basics of Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and blockchain
  • Why people donate bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies
  • How nonprofits fundraise Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
