Bitcoin is continuing to transform charitable giving, one organization at a time. Global Impact, which raises funds for leading international organizations such as Doctors Without Borders and UNICEF USA, is now accepting bitcoin donations.
Global Impact builds partnerships between for-profit and nonprofit organizations in order to help the world's poor. The organization raises money through nearly 450 workplace giving campaigns to serve over 120 charities, including Heifer International, World Vision, CARE, and Save the Children. Since 1956, Global Impact has generated more than $1.7 billion to help the world's most vulnerable people, establishing itself as a leader in growing global philanthropy. Bitcoin users who donate to Global Impact will be contributing to the effort to support world-changing organizations.
As the internet and digital media increase awareness of problems faced by communities around the world, there is a need for innovation in the payment methods that can turn that awareness into support. As a payment method made uniquely for the internet, bitcoin provides this innovation. By accepting bitcoin, Global Impact empowers its supporters to donate using a payment method which can be sent in practically any amount, from any internet-connected device, anywhere in the world. Global Impact's bitcoin donors can also be confident that every cent of their funds will be directed toward the organization and its charity partners – not to banking or credit card processing fees.
We are excited to help Global Impact support giving campaigns with a powerful donation method and are looking forward to helping many more charitable organizations accept bitcoin donations.
