Hi,
I know of an NPO called Life Line Association that resides in Israel.
They are working on improving the quality of life and saving lives in Israel, mostly for people with rare diseases or complications looking for help to afford costly medical treatments.
A couple of friends of mine have a son with Canavan's disease, a genetic disease affecting the brain similarly to multiple sclerosis but starts in the womb and progressing much more quickly.
I'd like to help them and the NPO they're getting donations from to accept bitcoins.
I'm a developer so I can help them technically and I would like to donate about 0.5 BTC from my own wallet.
Thanks,
David K.

We're going to need a link to a website from David for this one, Rassah. I'm at a lost as to which site it is.

Just got it in e-mail http://www.kavlachayim.co.il/?categoryId=76602
Sounds fine to me. Anyone have objections?


EDIT: By the way, I noticed we got moved into "Services." *shakes fist at mods*

This one looks fine, Rassah.

Dear Sally,

Please meet my friend Dmitry. We met in business school and he now runs a foundation that is looking for worthy nonprofits to donate to. He just donated $1,000 each to my friend Jessie's IBME and my friend Amy's Primate Education Network. I think he will really appreciate the mission of The Nexus Fund.

Dmitry's foundation is called BitCoin100. They arose out of the generosity of a few early BitCoin adopters to promote the value of the currency for nonprofits: when donors make their donations in BitCoins, the recipient nonprofit keeps 100% (hence the name). None of the funds are lost to credit card or processing fees.

BitCoin100 donates $1,000 to selected nonprofits who agree to accept the currency on their donation page. It doesn't take much work to get it set up, but I know the money could do a lot of good helping your grantees fight atrocities.

@Dmitry, Sally is a friend of mine who works at the same coworking space as I do. She is smart and friendly and works hard to make sure organizations on the ground in Africa are able to prevent and respond to mass atrocities in the most effective way. A $1,000 donation would be a big help with their projects.

Good luck!

I asked for a description of what it is they actually do, since the website just has vague goals without specifics.

Her reply:

Quote
Absolutely! Here's more info. I know it might not seem as "sexy" as something like a direct services organization (Charity:Water or the SPCA, for example), but I will tell you that as long as these areas are not being funded and explored, the amazing people and organizations trying to fight to end atrocities will not be able to do so effectively, because they are severely under-resourced, siloed in their efforts, and lacking in the skills and knowledge to more effectively do their work. So I hope that helps to explain our strategy. Please let me know if you have more questions!
Our four areas of focus are:

  • Innovation: Access to support and funding for innovative ideas and projects to prevent mass atrocities; identify and engage technologists, innovators and social entrepreneurs best placed to solve specific problems facing communities and organizations on the ground in at-risk areas; and providing grants for innovative, potentially game-changing projects that emerge from this collaboration, with a commitment to taking risks to uncover innovative solutions.
  • Community Building: A community of practice for more effective collaboration and sharing of information, through convenings, networking, and opportunities for collaboration in person and online.
  • Professional Development: Opportunities for practitioners to learn the skills and knowledge they need to be effective, including a Civil Society Exchange Program to allow practitioners to work in-person with key organizations around the world to share knowledge and best practices.
  • Research: The gathering and dissemination of information on pressing topics that directly affect the atrocity prevention community, including Retrospective Grants for highly experienced professionals in the atrocity prevention community to reflect and capture lessons learned and best practices. Nexus is completing a global directory of the atrocity prevention community in order facilitate networking and collaboration, and identify gaps and areas of need; this directory will be made available on the Nexus website.

We're going to have take a little more time on this one. They get an A+ for verbiage.  Grin

Hello Rassah,

I'm on the fundraising committee for a non profit agency called Last Door Recovery Society (www.lastdoor.org). I spoke with a staff member at a Toronto non profit that turned me on to your website and told me a bit about bitcoin.

I think the $1000 donation would entice my organization to accept Bitcoin for donation.
 
Do we qualify (we are a registered Canadian charity)? And if so how do we go about setting up a Bitcoin donation option on our website? (http://www.lastdoor.org/online-payments/)

Thanks for your time,

Matthew

Seems legit to me. This one was actually introduced to us by that Pathways to Education Canuck with whom I had a very lovely dinner and discussion in Toronto this past weekend.

Dear Mark,

Please meet my friend Dmitry. We met in business school and he now runs a foundation that is looking for worthy nonprofits to donate to. He just donated $1,000 each to my friend Jessie's IBME and my friend Amy's Primate Education Network. He's looking for nonpolitical, nonreligious organizations and I think he might like Washington Improv Theater.

Dmitry's foundation is called BitCoin100. They arose out of the generosity of a few early BitCoin adopters to promote the value of the currency for nonprofits: when donors make their donations in BitCoins, the recipient nonprofit keeps 100% (hence the name). None of the funds are lost to credit card or processing fees.

BitCoin100 donates $1,000 to selected nonprofits who agree to accept the currency on their donation page. It doesn't take much work to get it set up, but I know the money could do a lot of good supporting more of the awesome programs you put on with W.I.T.

@Dmitry, Mark is a friend of mine who has been Washington Improv Theater's executive director for years. He works tirelessly to organize classes for folks in DC to build confidence and have fun learning the art of improv comedy and put on shows. Like most arts programs, their efforts rarely break even, so they rely heavily on the generosity of the community and private funders. A $1,000 donation would make a big difference for their work.

Good luck!

I'm a bit more ambivalent about this one. Pros/cons/ideas?
EDIT: Actually I'm ok with this one too. Still, feedback would be appreciated.

I'm thinking that maybe Phinneas shouldn't be the only one to vet all of these. I try to a bit, too, but it may be a bit overwhelming for just him. So, if anyone else could take the time to look these over, that would be appreciated.

lastdoor.org looks fine, Rassah.

@Dmitry, Laurie is a friend of mine whose husband is on my wife's work team. She's a former Peace Corps volunteer and started Pathways Togo with two friends to provide educational scholarships, mentoring and life skills training for young women in the village where they'd worked. A $1,000 donation would make a big difference helping the young women succeed and fulfill their potential.

Good luck!

I'm a couple behind now, but the vetting process is quite simple. I check to make sure that the domain has been registered for a decent amount of time, then check the Wayback Machine to make sure their site has been live for close to the same amount of time.

I also check to make sure none of the principles are bitcoiners looking for a freebie, of which has been attempted, but not necessarily on purpose. Also, I check to make sure they are not religious- or politically-based.

Bonus points awarded if there's a goat on their home page.  Grin

We gotta figure out what to do with http://nexus-fund.org/ They may be a deserving NPO but, like you, I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around them. Perhaps if they didn't use so many adjectives and adverbs, not to mention a shitload of clichés...

Perhaps, ask Sally who they have given grants to recently, along with shedding a tad more light on exactly what they do. What I find ironic is if this entity was several years old, based outta Arkansas and the website hacked together by a Kentuckian, they would have already received an endowment from Bitcoin 100. Not trying to make a funny, but I hope those reading this see my point.

Anybody reading this is welcome to chime in to shed some light on The Nexus Fund. I'm sure they're a deserving bunch, but we currently feel prudent to act on the side of caution while the jury is still out (cliché speak).

Another option is to have Rassah speak to Sally on the phone, and if he feels comfortable after the exchange, he would simply tell her it's a go, then follow through with the endowment once The Nexus Fund embeds, or let her know that a tad more time is needed to consider the endowment if Rassah still has doubts.

Does Mars One qualify for this? It accepts bitcoins now.

No one interested in this venture? I think they are honest, but if no one donates, it will never happen.

http://www.mars-one.com/en/donate

Unfortunately, Mars One no longer qualifies due to the fact the Bitcoin 100 allocates endowments to NPOs for the sole purpose of bringing further awareness to Bitcoin proper, albeit we've made an exception with the Bitcoin Documentary crew and perhaps one other entity (taxing my memory on the latter).

That said, and although it's a grey area, I have an idea. Why don't you start a thread for the sole purpose of raising at least $1,000 USD via Bitcoin within the next 30 days? If said goal is reached, Bitcoin 100 will match the first $1,000 USD.

Post in this thread and PM me if you're up to the task.

Hi Shabana,

Please meet my friend Dmitry. We met in DC in a group of people enthusiastic about innovative technologies that improve our society. He now runs a foundation that is looking for worthy nonprofits to donate to. I am also getting him in touch with over a dozen more organizations I have been connected to. I think he will really appreciate Hope Through Education and School of Leadership, Afghanistan.

@Dmitry, Shabana is a friend of mine with a great passion for improving lives of others. I met her at Middlebury College while getting immersed in challenges and peculiarities about socio-economic development. Shabana strives to educate women and works terelessly to do so at her home in Afghanistan. She has been recognized for her work countless times nationally and internationally (eg. link1, [urlhttp://www.bushcenter.org/blog/2013/05/13/leading-change-featuring-shabana-basij-rasikh]link2[/url]).

Dear Maria,

Please meet my friend Dmitry. We met in business school and he now runs a foundation that is looking for worthy nonprofits to donate to. He has donated $1,000 each to the Khan Academy, Inward Bound Mindfulness Education, and my friend Amy's Primate Education Network, to name a few. I think Collegiate might be a great fit.

Dmitry's foundation is called BitCoin100. It arose out of the generosity of a few early adopters of a nerdy-but-amazing currency called BitCoins (if you haven't heard of them, this might help) that is poised to become the dominant online payment method. Their goal is to promote the value of the currency for nonprofits: when donors make their donations in BitCoins, the recipient nonprofit keeps 100% (hence the name). None of the funds are lost to credit card or processing fees.

BitCoin100 donates $1,000 to selected nonprofits who agree to accept the currency on their donation page. It doesn't take much work to get it set up, but I know the money could do a lot of good for Collegiate.

@Dmitry, Maria is my cousin and works in fundraising for the private (nonprofit, of course) high school I attended in Richmond, VA. They create a rigorous learning environment with small class sizes and a reputation for a community-focused culture. A $1,000 donation would make a big difference helping provide scholarships-- I certainly couldn't have gone to school there myself without such donations.

Good luck!

This one is a non-profit private school. I think this one may be stretching it a bit  Undecided

Just got an e-mail from them today, and was wondering when they started taking bitcoin donations, until I saw your post. Here's the e-mail

Quote
From: Shannon

Hi Dmitry, my name is Shannon Forsythe and I am the Executive Director of
Run2 Rescue, a US non-profit that helps girls who have hurt by sex
trafficking. SeansOutpost on reddit informed me about Bitcoin100 and
advised me to contact you about supporting and listing our organization.
I'm not sure what information you need from us but our website is
run2rescue.com and the donation page on our site is at:
run2rescue.com/donate.html which includes our Bitcoin address.

Let me me know if there is any documentation or anything else you need.
Thank you for work in helping non-profits and thank you for your
consideration and time,

Shannon Forsythe
Executive Director
Run 2 Rescue

These guys were just recently convinced to take bitcoin donations (like, today I think), so they may still qualify. Maybe. We need to discuss this further.

So far what we've agreed upon is:
If a charity is owned by a bitcoiner, it shouldn't qualify
If a charity has already been receiving bitcoin for a while, it shouldn't qualify

Bot of these reasons are because Bitcoin100 is supposed to entice new charities to accept bitcoin. Possibly charities who wouldn't have considered it otherwise. But is there a cutoff point to this? For example, what if someone convinces a charity to accept bitcoin, and then as soon as they do, points them to us? In this case, the charity wasn't convinced to take bitcoin specifically because of our $1,000 reward, but should we keep from rewarding them for taking the step anyway?
