Fidelity Charitable is now accepting bitcoin thanks to a partnership with Coinbase. Adding Bitcoin as a method of donation allows donors to bypass high international bank fees on money transfers.

Fidelity Charitable is the second largest charity in the U.S. and worked with Fidelity Labs, a unit of Fidelity Investments, on the integration. Coinbase announced on their blog that Fidelity Charitable has partnered with them to give donors the option of using bitcoin for their offers.

Matt Nash, Senior Vice President of Donor Engagement for Fidelity Charitable, stated:

“Enabling donors to contribute bitcoin to their donor-advised funds is the latest example of Fidelity Charitable’s commitment to making it as easy as possible to support the charities they care about with the assets at their disposal.”


Connie Gallippi, Founder and Executive Director of BitGive Foundation, welcomes the choice. She commented:

“It’s exciting, they’re a very large organization. It provides more validation for the use of Bitcoin.”

The website allows donors to contribute in any way they prefer (also through assets and investments), and as well choose any zone of the world. They can also consign the task to an intermediary or consult three huge charity organization databases.

Sounds good but where does this help bitcoin?

Bitcoin should be emphasized by the charity by organizing bitcoin only events.

By just mixing payment options and adding BTC wont emphasize it, and will make no difference.



For example if there is some tornado, you should organize donation operations only with bitcoin, to show the world how better is bitcoin.
