The Freedom of the Press Foundation Will Accept Zcash Donations

The Freedom of the Press Foundation now accepts cryptocurrency donations, including ZEC. “We plan to add more cryptocurrencies soon,” according to the announcement, “including support for donating to a shielded Zcash address.” The Freedom of the Press Foundation joins nonprofits like the Courage Foundation and the Internet Archive.

We hope to see more charities and advocacy groups use Zcash in the near future, thereby offering their donors a robustly private option. It is not a coincidence that freedom-oriented organizations are early adopters of Zcash. They understand that privacy protects autonomy, especially in repressive environments.

If you work with a nonprofit that is interested in accepting cryptocurrency donations but not sure how to go about it, feel free to get in touch! Our general email address is
