Hi Rassah,

I talked to someone last night who works for a great non-profit (giving wheelchairs to kids in 3rd world countries) that might want to start taking Bitcoins. I instantly thought of you!  Any advice I should send his way?

Thanks.  Smiley

If you think it is an organization that you could get behind let me know and I will PM contact information for my friend there.  He said he was not sure what the directors would think but he was very interested!  He had never even heard of Bitcoin until I mentioned it to him.  Of course there are many great organizations out there that could use support but this is one that I thought might be open to allowing Bitcoin donations on their site.  Not sure why anyone would not want to?  I guess they don't really get the potential?  Wink

I vote yes for this one. There's a lot of god in their website description, but all they seem to do is give out wheel chairs to anyone who needs one, so I don't think it's a problem.

Lend For America apparently does have a donation page here http://lendforamerica.org/contact.html Any comments on whether they qualify?

Thanks for considering it Rassah!  I messaged my friend and will PM you at some point with the contact info.  Yes, the organization is more of a humanitarian outreach than "religious" one.  I know how you feel about that. Wink

It's not how I feel about that, it's what the organization's policy is. It's not my money that Bitcoin100 will be donating.

Basically, it's a simple process to vet the NPOs, then give enough time for anybody to express their concerns, whatever they may be.

For instance:

Then make sure the NPOs are not heavily religious-based.

This one passes!

Another request. Can we use an innovative financial instrument to donate to a charity that focuses on innovative finance?

From Vanessa

Quote
Our charity is Lend for America (lendforamerica.org). We offer a platform to help college students practice microfinance in the U.S. Students raise small funds to make microloans to disadvantaged business owners in the community next to their university. We've grown from 3 campus MFIs in 2009 to 24 today and we offer several programs to help students including online toolkits, in-person training during site visits, an annual conference, and a year-long fellowship program. We were founded by and still remain within the legal structure of the Intersect Fund Corporation - tax ID #: 36-4636828. The Intersect Fund was founded by students at Rutgers University in 2008 to serve small business owners throughout New Jersey.

Please let me know what other information you may need.

This charity was actually introduced to us by DavidBAL, who found out about us at the Amsterdam conference, and was also at the Atlanta conference.
The first thing I notice, though, is that they don't have a donation page. Hmmm  Tongue

As you've lightly touched upon, The Intersect Fund is the parent entity: http://who.godaddy.com/whois.aspx?k=61s/TEfclYDjhittscQD7ocgaSDf62z48ufwU3MZRuT8G6wTsA2hPFxE3+jhD+/P5UuheAwIp4w=&domain=lendforamerica.org&prog_id=GoDaddy

Rassah, it looks like the Intersect Fund is the best place to send an endowment.

Regarding this

Just had a Skype call with Amy and Pradeep of the Primate Education Network. Their fiscal sponsor http://trustforconservationinnovation.org/ does the donation receiving and processing for them, and handles quite a few charities. Amy and Pradeep want to try to convince their sponsor to accept bitcoins, but mostly had some questions regarding legal issues and regulatory stuff.

Just got an update today:

Quote
Pradeep S.

Hi Dmitry!

I have good news!  Our organization's fiscal sponsor (for whom you answered all those questions) has finally approved of using Bitcoin as an experiment.  We're signing up for coinbase on Monday most likely and enabling contributions soon thereafter.

Thank you for your time and continuous support.

Despite the delay, I hope we still have the opportunity to seek your contribution.  Please let us know.  Thanks again for everything.

So, looks like we'll be sending out another donation soon Smiley

Let me know if you need any more information for the vetting process. I would want to start this process with The Humane League first.

Bitpay is currently reviewing the application I sent in for The Humane League and I can talk to the IT staff soon after that is confirmed.

I have no qualms with either of these two orgs, but wanted the info out there for full disclosure.

The Humane League looks like a fine candidate for a $1,000 USD endowment from Bitcoin 100.

Hi -

The Intersect Fund was founded by students at Rutgers University back in 2009. Lend for America (LFA) was founded by students who created the Intersect Fund along with students at other universities. They created LFA to have a platform to share resources and engage in peer discussion. At the time it made sense for the Intersect Fund to house all of LFA's backend because it was much easier when LFA was getting started. LFA has a separate budget and bank account but we do not have separate financial statements.

If its easier for you to use the Intersect Fund's donation page, that's fine. Let me know, thanks!

Personally, I'm not sure what the difference would be between putting the donation page on their charity, or their parent entity's page.

Vanessa Carter

Hi -

The Intersect Fund was founded by students at Rutgers University back in 2009. Lend for America (LFA) was founded by students who created the Intersect Fund along with students at other universities. They created LFA to have a platform to share resources and engage in peer discussion. At the time it made sense for the Intersect Fund to house all of LFA's backend because it was much easier when LFA was getting started. LFA has a separate budget and bank account but we do not have separate financial statements.

If its easier for you to use the Intersect Fund's donation page, that's fine. Let me know, thanks!

Personally, I'm not sure what the difference would be between putting the donation page on their charity, or their parent entity's page.

If it's proven that they're closely related, either do I. I use the word proven loosely, for it's a forgone conclusion that they are, leaving it to others to offer up proof if that's not the case.

I found an interesting charity thanks to Vivienne Harr who rang the bell: http://www.notforsalecampaign.org/

She's the 9 year old in the middle, next to some dude on her right (your left).

Hey everyone. Quick question- I told Vanessa to set up a coinbase account for the donation. Did I tell her correctly? Just a suggestion, as some of the orgs tiptoe into the space might be useful if BTC 100 had a small welcome packet the Director could use as a guide.

Couldn't be more thankful for your support of LFA, they do the most amazing work and they really count and stretch every penny.

Cheers!

David
