I'm a board member of a non-profit in South Korea. We coordinate safety and cleaning initiates all over the country for the rock climbing community. I've recently heard a podcast about the bitcoin 100 on the Ltb network. I'm very interested in providing bitcoin as a donation option on our website and was curious about the donation promotion your group is currently doing. The site is KOTRi.org
The website is rather simple but it looks like they try to make climbing safer? They donate workpower to clean walls, recreate the wall for being safer and donate money to victims of climbing.
I only found other mentions of the website at the usual internet marketer promotion ways but nothing like wikipedia, bigger newspages or something.
I don't really see a problem with this one. It's a nonprofit, but they can still promote bitcoin to their members. I guess I'll tell them to go ahead and add it as a donation option to their site, unless anyone has any issues.
And now for some more applications to vett:
Thanks so much for replying to my tweet.Marijuana Majority
is an officially registered 501(c)(3) public education organization in the U.S. that seeks to inform the public and policymakers about the diverse and growing group of prominent voices speaking out about the consequences of marijuana prohibition laws. From the racially disproportionate impact of the enforcement of these laws, to the distraction of police officers from stopping violent crimes, to the waste of taxpayer resources, to the enrichment of gangs and cartels that control the black market, there are many reasons that diverse voices from across the political spectrum are speaking up for change. While we seek to highlight this growing chorus for reform and educate the public that this issue is becoming more and more mainstream, we are strictly not a political organization. That is, we do not endorse or oppose candidates for elected office. We do not engage in any level of politicking; our work falls squarely within IRS rules for nonprofit public education organizations.
We decided to start accepting BTC donations just this past week after 1) finding out about Bitcoin100's generous offer and 2) being encouraged to do so by many would-be donors on reddit.
Please let me know if you'd like to see documentation of our 501(c)(3) status or if there are any questions about our work that I can answer for you.
This was sent to me 10 days ago (took a wile for me to get to), and looks fine to me. Can someone please verify that they are ok?
I am the founder of a brand new nonprofit, Intsikelelo, that helps orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa. Our launch this week was very exciting, as a video we made to promote the launch ended up going viral on the internet. After many suggestions on reddit that we accept bitcoin donations, we made an account with BitPay and are now set up to accept bitcoin donations. I've heard that your organization could help us out in various ways, which is really exciting for us! We don't know very much about bitcoin but are excited to learn more.
Please let me know more about your organization and how we can work together. Our website is www.intsikelelo.org
, and our BitPay button is located on our donation page at www.intsikelelo.org/donate
. The viral video I mentioned is on our website or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4_2gbx2Kxg
if you have any interest!
They are a year old, and also seem fine, but I'd like a second opinion too please.
I used to serve on the Board of Directors of the Northern California
DX Foundation (www.ncdxf.org
). This is a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) charity
that promotes international scientific expeditions and education
through amateur radio.
I've been working on trying to convince NCDXF to accept bitcoin
donations, and I think I'm close. If there's a chance they'd be
eligible for a $1000 donation from Bitcoin 100, that might just be the
last little nudge I'd need to get them to start accepting bitcoin
Please take a quick look at the NCDXF web site and see if you think
the organization might be a candidate for a Bitcoin 100 grant. If so,
let me know the process, and I will put the idea back in front of the
current Board of Directors.
Quick glance at this and they also look ok, I guess. Maybe they can help set up some radios to broadcast bitcoin blocks around the world
I looked through some forums on r/Bitcoin and saw that your organization provides some funding to secular and non-political charities and organization. [Last week] I helped a local charity set up a Bitcoin address and donation option and was wondering if their organization meets any other qualifications for funding from your organization.
Here is the website to our local charity/not-for-profit:http://familyenrichment.ca/index.php/en/page/home
Family Enrichment Counselling Services Inc. is a secular and non-political charity that specifies in mental health services and education for the local community. We provide rate adjusted counselling for those who cannot afford mental health services, and we provide free counselling for those who have been a victim of violence in the family.
I was also wondering if it's possible to have our website added onto yours.
Regardless of your answer, I'd like to extend a thank you for supporting charities in the way you're doing. It's very encouraging to see people band together without a central authority.
And their follow-up:
The rates are adjusted based on the financial situation of the client. Some of the fees are strictly for a psycholigist or mediation services, but our primary interest is affordable counselling for people in need.
My apologies. I do not hold any executive title in the organization so my answers may not be in depth, but my understanding is that fees are collected to ensure that the therapists on staff are paid and that the rent for the offices are paid. Any additional revenue goes back to subsidizing clients for mental health services in the case that they cannot afford counselling. We service many single mothers and clients with trauma that have vulnerable living and financial situations. In addition, extra funds are used to create affordable and often free group therapy programs.
As for our charity work, I know that we are registered. I believe our free educational and therapeutic programs for the community enable this title. We also collaborate and help other charities when we see they need a boost by setting up events and promotion. I can acquire additional details for you if you want specifics of exactly what distinguishes us as a charity.
I'm kind of undecided on this one...
My name is Kirsten Tynan, and I am executive director of the Fully Informed Jury Association
, a 501c3, non-profit, educational organization dedicated to fully informing everyone of jurors' right and authority to judge the law as well as the facts in cases before them, and to conscientiously acquit through jury nullification when a just verdict requires it.
I have been looking into setting FIJA up to accept Bitcoin, and one area I have not yet figured out is what we need to do for Bitcoin donors to fulfill legal requirements for some kind of receipt for their tax-deductible donation. Do you have any guidance on this? I browsed the Bitcoin100 website a bit, but didn't find anything on this. I tried to send you a message through the BitcoinTalk forum, but that is not working for me at the moment so I hope it is okay to try and reach you by e-mail.

Fully Informed Jury Associationhttp://www.FIJA.org
and their follow-up a week ago, after they contacted me earlier in the month:
Looks like we are now verified sufficiently to accept $1000 per day in Bitcoin, so I think we are good to go!
Our mission is to educate everyone that jurors have the right and responsibility to conscientiously acquit defendants through jury nullification when a just verdict requires it. Jurors may wish to exercise this authority when they believe a law is inherently unjust or unjustly applied, when they believe a punishment is unjustly harsh compared to the severity of the offense committed, etc.
In addition to providing a new avenue for donors to help support FIJA, we look forward to being listed as a Bitcoin-accepting charity because it opens up opportunities for us to start conversations with new communities who I think would potentially benefit by access to jurors who are fully informed of and willing to exercise their traditional, legal authority to vote Not Guilty. There is a great need right now for jurors to stand in peaceful defense of harmless people targeted by government for prosecution for political and other malicious reasons.
Thank you so much for this opportunity!
These guys have been around for a while! Looks good to me, but, again, just need a second opinion.

Apologies for the broken link, You can access our site at: http://www.newimageshelter.org
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Thanks so much for what you do and for taking the time to respond to us.
Looking forward to speaking further with you soon!
These guys integrated their bitcoin donation option shortly after contacting me (in May >.< I am soooo behind), so still qualify from the "you have already been receiving bitcoin" point. Please check them on all other aspects.
Also, FYI, I added a place where I can keep track of charities and their status. It was getting difficult to remember what we have reviewed and what we haven't.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1bafU08cYWIxF8gV_ZJf74EybOh8ykK7NTVh5dP6Ps2w/edit?usp=sharing
