My guest today is Pat Duffy, co-founder of The Giving Block. Pat began as a federal consultant for pharmaceutical companies, focused on collaboration with nonprofits. He then shifted to the nonprofit sector, focusing on executive leadership and fundraising. Leading to eventually starting The Giving Block with his co-founder Alex Wilson by merging their passion for Nonprofits and Bitcoin. The Giving Block makes it easy for nonprofits to accept bitcoin and other crypto donations while giving donors a more tax efficient way to support their favorite causes. They've developed the first solution specific to the nonprofit ecosystem. We have an incredible conversation where we go deep on crypto and charity. Pat explains the tax incentives for crypto investors to donate their crypto and why charities' are embracing crypto. We discuss the charitable culture within crypto and The Crypto Giving Pledge.
