Orr Group TALKS: “Crypto philanthropy for Nonprofits and Donors”
Cryptocurrency is changing the fundraising landscape, and with so much new wealth creation, nonprofit organizations should be paying attention. Today, crypto users are the fastest growing donor demographic, giving an average amount of $10,500 per donation – nearly 10 times larger than the average donation made in cash.

To explore the growth of cryptocurrency and its impact on philanthropy further, we will be joined by Pat Duffy, Co-Founder of The Giving Block, and Amanda Nelson, Vice President of Orr Group to discuss the emerging opportunities. If your nonprofit isn’t already accepting cryptocurrency, join to learn more about the benefits, risks, and considerations for integrating cryptocurrency as a giving option. For donors considering making a gift of cryptocurrency, sign up to hear about the tax benefits and growing community of crypto philanthropists.
