How can my NFT project support a charity?
There are many ways to support a charity, including making one-time donations, donating a percentage of mint or sale royalties, and making recurring charitable donations via smart contracts.
How do I make a one-time donation from my NFT project to a charity?
Once you have found a charity to support, visit their donation page. From there, follow the prompts on the donation widget.
How can my NFT project donate a percentage of mint or sale royalties?
To donate a percentage of royalties, either from your mint or secondary sales, you can either make donations manually using the charity’s donation widget, or you will need to put the nonprofit’s wallet address in your smart contract and designate the intended percentage of profits to be donated and which conditions determine when donations should be made.
Can I put a nonprofit’s wallet address into my smart contract?
Yes, many NFT projects make recurring charitable donations via smart contacts. To do so, you must first retrieve the wallet address for the nonprofit of your choice. When you have selected a charity or fund to support, visit its donation page. From there, follow the prompts on the donation widget and be sure to select the cryptocurrency that you intend to donate. Copy the wallet address and paste it into your smart contract.
(NOTE: Please double-check that you have selected the correct cryptocurrency that you wish to donate. If you do not do so, your charitable donation will likely not be received by the nonprofit and your crypto may not be retrievable.)
Which cryptocurrencies do you accept?
Nonprofits using The Giving Block accept more than 100 cryptocurrencies, including the most popular cryptocurrencies among NFT creators such as Ethereum, Solana and Tezos.
What happens if my NFT project donates an unsupported token?
We don’t want this to happen. Your crypto could be unretrievable, for both you and the nonprofit that you wanted to support. If you are unsure whether or not a cryptocurrency is accepted, please check the list here. If you still have questions, please DM us on Twitter.
How should I make a large crypto donation from my NFT project?
