CryptoGivingTuesday, the Database of Charities that Accept Crypto Donations

CryptoGivingTuesday is born to expand the trend, that brought people to donate $400 million, also in cryptocurrency world.

The 2019 #GivingTuesday edition (December 3rd) is the chance to improve the old webiste and release a fresh new design, with more details about crypto charities and useful resources to foster the crypto adoption.

GivingTuesday harnesses the generosity of millions of people around the world to support the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Bitcoin and crypto now represent an ecosystem that could not be ignored, made by people that are interested too in charitable causes.
After important initiatives such as Pineapple Fund, which donated 5,000 BTCs (about $55 million), the positive trend is also shown by Fidelity Charitable, that recently said to have received over $100 million for charity since 2015.

For Donors

CryptoGivingTuesday provides a list of charities and donation platforms that accept cryptocurrency, with information about their activities, accepted coins, social media accounts, text and media materials.
The “Donate Crypto” button redirects you to their donation landing page, as the platform does not distribute donations.
At the current state of art, there are 40+ charities and 9 donation platforms. The most accepted crypto is Bitcoin (BTC), followed by Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
