Dmitry,

We're a 501(c)(3) secular non-profit based in the US.  We're considering implementing a BitCoin donation option.

If Bitcoin100's offer still stands, it would certainly help offset a bit of the implementation costs.

Would you let me know if we might be eligible?

You can learn more about us at http://thewaterproject.org

These guys passed, added a donation option (https://thewaterproject.org/donate.php has donate with bitcoin option on the right side)
and $1,000 Donation sent:

Also, the Sri Lanka Campaign for Peace and Justice, a London-based NGO, just started to accept bitcoin (http://www.srilankacampaign.org/giveanonymously.htm) They actually started taking it a sort while ago, but forgot to tell us Tongue Does that disqualify them? (*looks at Phinneas*  Tongue)

No! They are fine! Endowment, I say.

They have added the option, http://www.srilankacampaign.org/giveanonymously.htm, and

The GW Zoo. The World's Largest Tiger sanctuary open to the public needs our help. They were hit massively by the sudden temperature changes in the MidWest. I know the owner personally, it is a NPO and he would be interested in being set up to accept BTC.

This is another NPO that is hosting the Zoo's donation page for the recent tragedy
http://donateoklahoma.usza.us/ (United States Zoological Association)

Their home site is
http://www.gwzoo.org/   (Largest Tiger sanctuary in the world that is open to the public)

They Zoo's youtube has some great videos that have went viral
http://www.youtube.com/user/JoeExoticTV

Also I know they have a great relationship with Barcroft Media and them accepting BTC for entry and as donations will make international press which is good for the coin.

What can we do to get them set up?

Yes, please let him know that we would be glad to donate $1,000. The setup process is this:

1) Go to BitPay and sign up for an account (make sure to set up as a non-profit if they are)
2) Link and verify BitPay account to their own bank account
3) On BitPay dashboard, click "Accept Donations," fill out the few forms (like which URL to go to when done), and hit "Submit." This will generate HTML code to copy/paste
4) Copy/paste the provided HTML code into the donation page site.

That's it. BitPay makes the whole process ridiculously easy.

Hi. How long ago did you start accepting bitcoins? Bitcoin100's goals are to entice new charities to accept them - ones that might not otherwise be interested - and we can't basically give out bitcoins to bitcoin fans. Though if you will be promoting bitcoin in your local community, that would really help convince us to donate anyway.

Also, can you briefly describe what you actually do?

Thank you

Thanks, bud.

Let's see how this would look, with the option of changing it if it comes across too lame.



Bitcoin100 was developed specifically to convince NPOs to accept bitcoin donations, then donating the BTC equivalent of $1,000 USD to non-political, secular charities that prominently display an option for their supporters to contribute bitcoins via their website.

affordable housing NPO interested in seeking bitcoin donations

From: Ryan N.

Hello Dmitry,
I'm a treasurer for La Reunion, an non-profit Affordable Housing Cooperative in Austin, Texas that opened in April of this year. To remain affordable we bought an old building which has required much more maintenance that expected due to health and safety issues such as bedbugs and high levels of carbon monoxide.
One of our goals is to establish more computer literacy in the community by setting up a computer lab and a mesh network and try to provide internet to the surrounding apartments. This goal has been put on the back burner due to high maintenance  costs. Because the founders are educated and use technology for organization we realize how far behind some of our lower income members are and the the pressing need to bring them "on-line" both to the global internet and to our local organizing structures, like our wiki, maintenance trello, food pantry app, etc.
We've set up fundraisers for both maintenance  and tech  and I'm sure by accepting bitcoin we would get more donations. With a $1000 dollars worth of bitcoin we could buy the routers and computers to get started at building a community provide internet and housing.
If you would like more information check out our wiki or email/ call me.

 I think the following links would be valuable for your reviewers/donors.

Bitcoin100.org has been updated to reflect the addition of The League Against AIDS, Inc., WeSearch, The Water Project, and the Sri Lanka Campaign. Did I miss anyone?

BTW, I just renewed the registration for the bitcoin100.org domain - hard to believe it's already been two years since Bruno launched this project.  Shocked

And hey, those asses at http://www.donkeyrescue.org/ added a bitcoin donation option, too (they finished changing their website, but forgot to tell me, and I just remembered them and decided to look). So, we'll have one more donation going out in a bit. There is apparently a minor issue wit BitPay: the defualt settings don't allow for more than $100 or so per donation  Tongue I looked through my ow BitPay account, but can't find where to change it. E-mailed BitPay support. Hopefully they will change the default limit for donations to $1,000, because otherwise we'll keep running into this issue every time (this is the second or third time I ran into it)

I like this org, but can't seem to find their donation page. They are fairly new and use a wiki as their website, but they are linked to 501(c)3 org. I'm curious as to where they would prominently display the Bitcoin donation option on their website. They do have a descent Facebook page.

ok guys finally have gwzoo.org signed up for bitpay. they should be implementing the bitcoin on their donation page within a few hours. Also it should be going out on an international story that barcroft media is doing on the zoo. The donation link will be referenced in the article as well. This is after all the biggest tiger sanctuary in the world open to the public and they been hit hard by the recent storms. Id like to thank the BTC100 for there amazing contributions to so many charities.

Plus, it only accepts donations up to $100 USD, but no over, i.e. $101. I'm pretty sure it's a simple fix. Please contact support at BitPay, whereupon the issue should be resolved in a timely manner.
