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

That should be fine. I don't know what Coinbase's policy on fees is. We typically say "BitPay" because they don't charge any fees if you are a non-profit.

0% fees for the first million. Thought it would be a little easier for her to navigate- she's still learning how it all works! Let me know if there is money available for more microfinance or education projects.. I could send several more your way!

What exactly is meant when only "secular" charities are considered?

The Salvation Army is clearly a Christian Protestant organization, but obviously, the vast majority of their work would please any secular Humanist. I mean - they don't just go somewhere like Haiti during a disaster, drop off a hundred-thousand Bibles and say "Godspeed!" There is some unfortunate homophobic sentiment within their structure, and other iffy history, but the organization has been affirmed by governments as "secular enough."

Would the Salvation Army be rejected as a charity for BTC100?

To answer your last question, probably not.

The caveat is mainly in place to make sure endowments are not allocated to NPOs that are clearly attached to a particular religious organization. For an example, there may be a Baptist Church in Atlanta that has a separate 501(c)3 set up to garner donations for some cause of which does a phenomenal job with their non-profit. In that case, it would not qualify. Realistically, there are thousands of such caused set up by churches, mostly at the local level, and it's these that we opt to not include for consideration.

I hope I addressed your question/concern to your liking, but if not, please let me know, and thanks for the opportunity to letting us do such, Kluge.

Basically I guess anybody in this thread/who donated to B100 would have a strong voice (not a veto) if he objected the one or the other cause. Distance to hocus pocus, shadiness and reach of the organisation will be taken into consideration and religions and political parties have an x3 hocus pocus boost.

Hi Rassah,

Coinbase verified PEN's fiscal sponsor's bank account and we're good to go!  We are now ready to receive bitcoin donations via coinbase.

Please visit our donation page at http://www.primateeducationnetwork.org/donate/ and click on the "Donate Bitcoins" button.

Amy and I sincerely thank you for your patience and consistent support.  This contribution means a lot to us at this time in PEN's growth story.

Please let me know if you face any issues.  Laura and I can coordinate to resolve them.

Hello,

Esquina Tango Cultural Society of Austin now accepts Bitcoin donations. Please visit the website www.EsquinaTangoAustin.com and look at the lower right corner for the "bitcoin accepted here" button. The integration of the Bitcoin donations with Joomla (the CMS used by the non-profit) definitely has room for improvement but maybe that's something that can be done with the Bitcoin100 donation.

Thanks!

Phinn, please verify Smiley

Looks good, Rassah. Maybe they'll tweet about their endowment, since having active Twitter and FB accounts.

I have been sending people to bitcoin100.org as a way of looking me up, but there's no easy way to reach me from there. Have it say something like

I took care of your latter request, Rassah. Check it out to see if it passes muster: http://bitcoin100.org/contact/

edd could more easily take care of the other request, seeing that the WP editing process is catered to his liking. I could easily get up to speed as to how he has it set up, but opted not to take the time to go through the learning curve.

Checking on the latest NPOs now.

I understand those can be hard to find.
