The Susan G. Komen Foundation, which is fighting against breast cancer, announced that it accepts cryptocurrencies.
Susan G. Komen, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, announced that it accepts cryptocurrencies as donations in collaboration with The Giving Block.
The foundation will accept meme tokens such as Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Dogelon Mars (ELON), as well as Gala (GALA), Orchid (OKT), Civic (CVC) and Bitcoin (BTC).
The foundation, which comes from model Susan Goodman Komen, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33 and passed away three years later, was founded in 1980 by Komen’s younger sister, Nancy Brinker.
Komen needs donations to provide health awareness education and fund breast cancer research. The foundation has invested over $1.1 billion in this research since 1982.
The Giving Block Works with Hundreds of Charities
Founded in 2018, The Giving Block has partnered with hundreds of charities. Humanity Forward, a nonprofit, started accepting cryptocurrencies in May.
Earlier this month, The Giving Block announced that it will launch a new service aimed at streamlining the cryptocurrency donation process for wealthy individuals.
The popular platform also launched 15 new funds last month that organize nonprofits around their common cause to make it easier for donors to support them.
