Al Jalila Foundation, the United Arab Emirates charitable organization, recently announced that it has been given permission to accept cryptocurrency donations. Accepting cryptocurrencies makes it possible for the foundation to receive funding via what is described as one of the fastest-growing donation methods.
A United Arab Emirates (UAE) healthcare organization, Al Jalila Foundation, said it has been given permission to accept digital money and that well-wishers can now donate via cryptocurrencies. By accepting cryptocurrencies, Al Jalila Foundation has become one of the first nonprofit organizations from the UAE to do so.
As a philanthropic organisation we rely on charitable donations and we are always seeking innovative ways to expand our donation channels for ease of convenience for donors from all around the world to support our programmes. Therefore, as an emerging source of fundraising, providing the opportunity to the growing number of crypto users around the world to donate to Al Jalila Foundation to causes that interest them is a win-win for us as a foundation and the donor community.
Accepting cryptocurrency donations gives the Al Jalila Foundation, which has reportedly raised millions since its inception in 2013, an opportunity to get funding via what the statement calls a fast-growing donation method favored by Millennial and Gen-Z donors.
