BTCPay Server helps protect the privacy of donors.
Alex Gladstein, chief strategy officer of The Human Rights Foundation, said that the BTCPay Server helps protect the identity and privacy of donors, and it has no centralized entity that would collect or exploit user information. The non-profit organization also accepts donations in ether (ETH), and privacy-oriented coins such as Monero and Zcash (ZEC).

A great project that helps with privacy + doesn’t collect your information. Special thanks to @artdesignbySF for his design work.

UNICEF accepts donations in bitcoins
The United Nations Children’s Fund announced the formation of a crypto fund later last year. UNICEF now accepts donations in bitcoin and ethereum. The other non-profit organizations that accept donations in bitcoin are the American Cancer Society, The Water Project, Internet Archive, Humanity Road, and the Tor Project. Earlier this year, one of the leading crypto exchanges in the world, Binance donated $1 million in BNB to help fight bushfires in Australia.
Donating in cryptocurrencies is much more efficient from around the globe as compared to donating in the native currency. Transferring cryptocurrency across the border is easier and less expensive than national currencies.
