BitGive adds 9 industry leaders as founding donors!

BitGive Adds 9 Industry Leaders as Founding Donors!

BitGive is pleased to have nine industry leaders join as our final Founding Donors as we wind down this campaign. With these generous contributions and those before them, we have raised over $120K since mid 2013, which has supported BitGive’s mission and projects over in its few years. Yet, this is only the beginning, and there is still so much ahead!

Silver Founding Donors ($5,000)

Bronze Founding Donors ($2,500)

Earlier Founding Donors include BitPay, Perkins Coie, KnCMiner, Zlatin Balevsky, Bitcoin Development Fund, Jeff Garzik, Xapo, Libra, and many more. These industry leaders stand behind the global and social impact of Bitcoin and Blockchain and are willing to demonstrate that TODAY! They will be recognized in perpetuity as supporting the early start-up years of BitGive, the first officially recognized global Bitcoin and Blockchain nonprofit organization!

The Founding Donors campaign has now closed; however, if you would like to support BitGive’s mission and projects, you can become a Sustaining Donor or make a donation to BitGive anytime to help us succeed! Your generous contributions support BitGive’s overall mission, Bitcoin and Blockchain charity projects, education & outreach, and important operations to keep the organization healthy. We are also a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which can provide tax benefits to US donors.

Thank you for your support!
