The Rise of Cryptocurrency: Expanding your Giving Channels with Keela x BitPay


Nicole Kolkman & Merrick Theobald

Cryptocurrency is a buzzword that’s been floating about over the past several years with increasing frequency – and for good reason! 

Similar to donating stock, crypto is a tax-friendly way for donors to give that is becoming more commonplace. Its value is steadily rising (over USD 1 Trillion), and the opportunities for nonprofits to leverage this charitable revenue stream are continuing to grow. 

Despite this vast opportunity to capture cryptocurrency donations, very few nonprofits currently accept crypto or capture this giving channel in their fundraising strategies. Most professionals are still trying to understand what exactly these gifts are, how to use these types of donations, and how to accept them in the first place. That’s where Keela and BitPay come in! 

By the end of this webinar, you will:

  • Have a better understanding of what cryptocurrency is and how it works
  • Understand how to integrate BitPay with Keela
  • Learn the ins-and-outs of Crypto Forms and Crypto Receipting
