The most popular meme coin accounts for 4% of all contributions received by the ACS. America’s largest non-governmental funder of cancer research started accepting Dogecoin donations back in May 2021.
The organization makes it possible to make donations with a slew of different cryptocurrencies, including Dogecoin rival Shiba Inu, with the help of The Giving Block, a popular cryptocurrency donation solution.
Last year, the ACS launched its Cancer Crypto Fund campaign in order to raise $1 million for advancing cancer research. The goal was eventually met earlier this year. The organization says that crypto philanthropy is already having a “real impact.”
In October, Christian Linge of SafeBreast Inu donated $250,000, which is the biggest individual contribution to the ASL Cancer Crypto Fund to date.
