Free Webinar: What Nonprofits Need to Know About Digital Currency

Is digital currency worth the attention of nonprofit leaders?

Thursday, June 7, 2018, 1 – 2 PM Eastern

Everyone is talking about digital currency. Should nonprofits be part of that conversation? Idealware partnered with GuideStar to host a panel discussion to help nonprofit leaders understand what digital currency is and what it might mean for their organizations. This panel discussion will explore how Bitcoin and other currencies affect nonprofits, from donations to payments for programs and services to investments. Is it just a passing fad, or a lasting change?

We will cover what nonprofit leaders need to know in order to evaluate whether digital currency is worth their attention, and what the risks and benefits are. We will also discuss what you need in place in terms of technologies, policies, and procedures in order to accept digital currency. Finally, we will talk about what responsibilities nonprofits have to educate their constituents about the advantages and risks of digital currency.
