Donate Cryptocurrency

Support NTEN by making a charitable gift in Bitcoin or another cryptocurrency. We accept donations in Bitcoin, Ethereum, and over 50 leading cryptocurrencies.

Technology’s role in our daily lives has moved front and center because of the pandemic. Yet, many nonprofits and their employees still struggle to deploy technology internally and in their programs, despite moving much of their program delivery online.

NTEN has led the nonprofit sector in technology capacity building for organizations of all sizes and mission-focus for twenty years. Our research has consistently shown that nonprofit staff report having the tools they need but not the training to use them well. Making a cryptocurrency donation to support NTEN enables us to provide nonprofits with the training and ongoing support to address their communities’ needs. Our focus on the strategic and racially equitable use of technology has never been more urgent.

NTEN is a 501(c)(3) organization. You can download our latest 990 and review our Platinum profile on GuideStar.
