I think the main aspect that bitcoin and some other crypto currencies have going for them that could make the charity business great would be the transparency that blockchain transactions showcase.

There's often quite a bit of scandal with charities and if this was all transparent and every transaction was able to be tracked, this would be way harder to do.

Waiting 20-30 minutes isn't a big issue as well, they don't really need the funds ASAP, and if they charge back, it's just unlucky...

I'd like to ask if you know any charity organizations (verified, of course) that accept BTC as a donation. And if so, which ones?
There are a lot actually, and quite a few major ones. Here are some which I would recommend.

Tor - https://donate.torproject.org/cryptocurrency
Tails - https://tails.boum.org/donate/
Freedom of the Press Foundation - https://freedom.press/donate/cryptocurrency/

If you aren't familiar with Tor or Tails, they are both important pieces of software which improve privacy and security. A nice feature for those of us who worry about surveillance, but a potentially vital feature for those living under oppressive regimes or whistle-blowing. Worth your support. Freedom of the Press Foundation is obviously along a similar vein.

Also somewhat related:

EFF - https://supporters.eff.org/donate/join-eff-4

The Electronic Frontier Foundation develop and maintain the HTTPS Everywhere and Privacy Badger browser add-ons, which everyone should be using for their own privacy and security.

If you are looking for more humanitarian causes, then you could try:

UNICEF - https://www.unicef.org.nz/donate-in-crypto
The Human Rights Foundation - https://hrf.org/donate-bitcoin/
The Water Project - https://thewaterproject.org/donate-bitcoin

If you are a secret millionaire, you can also donate bitcoin through Fidelity Investments:

That's totally ok, but I believe that cryptocurrency may have some great features that could have a huge impact on charities and charitable giving.

It's because bitcoin was not really design to be used in philanthropy in the beginning, it just evolved and organisations are now readily accepting it.

I'd like to ask if you know any charity organizations (verified, of course) that accept BTC as a donation. And if so, which ones? I could only find that list, but it's quite short.

For unknown reason, I can't open that link, but I have this in my radar: https://hrf.org/donate-bitcoin/
Maybe if I have extra funds I would love to donate to that organization.

What's your opinion about Bitcoin donations? Did you ever donate your crypto to charity organizations? Why?

I guess there's nothing wrong with that and as long as you're willing to give then why not?

We have a Charity program here in this forum
Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5124375.0

You can see on the original post that they had already done donating in an orphanage. Still gathering funds for the next move. It is open for everyone, you can also join the discussion and share your thoughts.
Bitcoin donations is good if you have enough to share, sharing is caring... I remember when I was a child, I'm part of drop-in-children of Hablondawani (Good Shepperd) that receive stuffs from charity programs, now its time for me to give back.

The only charity I've donated is known as the water project, they are a great company and it breaks my heart that some people need to travel hours to carry jugs of drinkable water here, or they might even have access to the water. Sometimes it's the things we take for granted, that are real issues for some people.

Here's a link - https://thewaterproject.org/donate-bitcoin

And this is what you can do
Quote
Water and Sanitation for a School/Large Community: 2.571 BTC
Small Community Water Project: 1.2855 BTC
Clean, Safe water for a Family: 0.018 BTC
Clean, Safe water for 1 Person(s)*: 0.0036 BTC

I would urge you to donate the family option, I've done that some times.

I've tried donating one time at UNICEF Philippines. It's not huge amount but it's a good feeling if we can still donate freely with a good heart seeing you can still help them with small part of btc that we owned.

The recent earthquakes suffered a lot of people from a certain part of our country and i wanna share some crypto coins which i fortunately found  a certain foundation owned by a Manny Pacquiao.

Also, checked this site. They havr a list of where you can donate btc.

UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) just recently added to the list of organizations accepting cryptocurrencies. The organization, which accepts donations too and has main purpose of protecting children's rights and their access to basic needs, has established a Cryptocurrency Fund which in according to their statement, will be used to recieve and/or hold two top cryptocurrency in the market, Bitcoin and Ethereum. There might be other organizations but one thing's for sure, adoption is not stopping.

When we're talking about cryptocurrency, we don’t usually discuss philanthropy — donating to charity isn’t something often considered. Most of the talks are all about earning, mining and trading crypto. What's your opinion about Bitcoin donations? Did you ever donate your crypto to charity organizations? Why?


Philanthropic organizations are now starting to accept Bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies which they can use to support many ongoing and future projects that are supposedly working for the benefits of the people who are needy. However, I am quite careful in selecting my charitable organization because many of them are spending the money more on the operations and their salaries rather than on the programs. This is an article warning us of some bad charities who are not doing as they should be.

To make things fair, in any industry, there would always be good and good players, as long as we are all humans this can just be another natural phenomenon. I am sharing here with you, a list of some charities already accepting Bitcoin from donors: http://bitcoinforcharity.com/bitcoin-charity-list/.

A good indication of the big potential between cryptocurrency and charitable/development work is the recent announcement coming from the UNICEF. The UN children’s agency, Unicef, has announced it is accepting and disbursing donations through cryptocurrencies ether and bitcoin.

Should we now encourage all Bitcoin and cryptocurrency millionaires to allot a portion of what they are earning from this industry for charitable and developmental programs?

We have some members working to promote a charity program that helps some poor people in our country and they really help a lot. You can find more information about that project here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5124375

Take a few minutes and read about the charity mission they already accomplished. we are not only into Hodling and trading we also care for the poor.

That still depends, even we encourage them but they don't have the heart to help then we leave no choice but I'm sure there will be some that will have the willingness to give back and share their blessings. Besides, that won't make them poor by just donating some and surely it just nothing to them yet it's more than everything to some.

Though personally, I would be more willing to donate not to charities but directly to people that need it badly, like from victims of calamities. That way, I could ensure that the right people will aid from it.

What's your opinion about Bitcoin donations? Did you ever donate your crypto to charity organizations? Why?
first whats the reason for asking?having plans of donating?or just promoting that site for traffic?beause i dont see any reason of looking for charitable sites that accept bitcoin when you have no plan of giving.
i have donated in charity of course but wasn't use BTC because i donated in our local charity and some are from orphanage whos having childrens and special child.

We have some members working to promote a charity program that helps some poor people in our country and they really help a lot. You can find more information about that project here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5124375

Take a few minutes and read about the charity mission they already accomplished. we are not only into Hodling and trading we also care for the poor.
planning to add some small amount as well soon,since the charity work will be on december so i have at least a month to make it happen.

When we're talking about cryptocurrency, we don’t usually discuss philanthropy — donating to charity isn’t something often considered. Most of the talks are all about earning, mining and trading crypto.
That's totally ok, but I believe that cryptocurrency may have some great features that could have a huge impact on charities and charitable giving.

I'd like to ask if you know any charity organizations (verified, of course) that accept BTC as a donation. And if so, which ones? I could only find that list, but it's quite short.

What's your opinion about Bitcoin donations? Did you ever donate your crypto to charity organizations? Why?
American Red Cross was one of the nonprofit organization that accepts cryptocurrency and Bitcoins to be certain. There's Borderless Charity that provide housing, education and healthcare that accept 2 top ranked coin which is Bitcoin and Ethereum. Cryptocurrencies are now becoming a trend for nonprofit organization simply because of most young donators are preferably use crypto and for people they preferably donate it because it is easier to send crypto than use credit cards.

Philanthropy was not one of Satoshi's goal when he created Bitcoin I suppose. He was creating an alternative to fiat. But that is somehow implied because if Bitcoin will get the adoption and it will grow as an accepted currency in the future, it will also be used and accepted for donations.

In fact there were already instances when Bitcoin was used as a donation. UN agencies have made experiments on accepting crypto donations. When the Amazon fire broke out, donations in Bitcoin was also sent. There are also charitable initiatives within this forum itself that are accepting Bitcoin donations.

Sharing some of your blessings is not actually bad and it really is fulfilling. I haven't tried donating in any charities or foundations using cryptocurrency, but my friends and I had tried doing charity works and I have used some of my cryptocurrency to give my share. We had bought school supplies and had a feeding program for some children, especially those who are in need and had donated some funds to church which was actually helping children who cannot afford to go to school. Even with small amount and little things such as school supplies or food, it it heart melting to see other people smile because of it.

one good thing about bitcoin donations (to charities and similar organizations) is that it could solve a big problem that is their transparency. since bitcoin's blockchain is a public one where everyone can see the received/sent amount for any address, the charity could become a lot more transparent about how much they have received and how much or even where they have spent those amounts.

i haven't made any donations to charities but have made many donations to open source projects or more precisely to the developers who are spending their time for free to create useful tools for us to use.

previously I only knew of two projects that received charitable donations in the form of bitcoin or other cryptocurrency namely crypto tor and unicef ​​for me they were very noble people because they always made a way to receive charitable donations to be donated to people in need and to daily needs in order to survive, in the future if I have a little money, I will also make a donation so we will help each other.

Should we now encourage all Bitcoin and cryptocurrency millionaires to allot a portion of what they are earning from this industry for charitable and developmental programs?

That still depends, even we encourage them but they don't have the heart to help then we leave no choice but I'm sure there will be some that will have the willingness to give back and share their blessings. Besides, that won't make them poor by just donating some and surely it just nothing to them yet it's more than everything to some.

Though personally, I would be more willing to donate not to charities but directly to people that need it badly, like from victims of calamities. That way, I could ensure that the right people will aid from it.

It shouldn't be forced, I mean people can donate to different organisations with fiat as well. But forcing some crypto enthusiast to used his bitcoin, nah, I don't think so.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a self-centered individual, but I'm not into this whole crypto charity and philanthropy. I will donate if needed specially in my community. Or much better, give it directly to people who needed it, as you have said.

Well most of us entered crypto to make money, so normally, charity and giving money and support isn't first in our minds. Though I've always wanted to be a philanthropist ever since I became conscious about by surroundings. If ever I get a lot of money and the means to be a philantophist, I'd probably keep my crypto assets to myself. There are a lot of ways to donate to people something that they can use immediately.

OP, it's a very good idea for charities and foundations to be as a means to launder money. That's what the rich do. A better path should be on the ground, like Bitcoin exposure in the Hong Kong protests.
