Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Increases Its #GivingTuesday Impact by Participating in #CryptoGivingTuesday

11/16/21

When this year’s #GivingTuesday takes place on November 30th, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation‌ is excited to expand its impact by also participating in #CryptoGivingTuesday -- offering supporters a new way to give through Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.   

Although recent discoveries fueled by PBTF donors have unlocked new treatment options, the reality is that brain tumors remain the deadliest and most common form of cancer in kids under 15. As the largest patient advocacy funder of pediatric brain tumor research, PBTF is laser-focused on accelerating and expanding pediatric-first research and serving as patient families’ first stop on their child’s brain tumor journey. 

“To remain on the forefront of scientific discovery for the children we serve, it’s mission-critical that the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation continues to innovate and expand our impact. Crypto-philanthropy is a rapidly growing industry with boundless potential, and PBTF is excited to help cryptocurrency donors unleash their generosity to eradicate childhood brain tumors,” says Courtney Davies, PBTF’s president and CEO. 

Since 2019, #CryptoGivingTuesday has fostered a culture of philanthropy among cryptocurrency users, a demographic which now exceeds 220 million worldwide. Similar to Giving Tuesday, which falls on the same day, #CryptoGivingTuesday gives PBTF and other crypto-friendly nonprofits a way to reach new supporters and raise awareness about important causes like childhood cancer. 

#CryptoGivingTuesday is also the kick-off event for #BagSeason, the year-end crypto fundraising season hosted by The Giving Block which runs until December 31. Last year, supporters donated crypto worth $2.1 million to participating charities, including more than 100 cryptocurrency donations of $10,000 or more. 

By partnering with crypto-philanthropy leaders like The Giving Block,  GiveSafely provided by BBB Wise Giving Alliance, and Endaoment, PBTF ensures that donating cryptocurrency to our mission is safe, easy, and fast. When someone supports PBTF using crypto, their donation is converted at current market value to US$ and the value is made available to PBTF to improve scientific collaboration and innovation around the world, accelerate the development of targeted brain tumor treatments for children, and provide patient families with the resources and community of support they need from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.
