Fundraisers are well aware that if you don’t ask for the gift, it’s almost certain you’ll never see it. What’s even more certain is that you’ll never see a gift of cryptocurrency if your organization isn’t set up to accept it. And these gifts, well, they can be pretty significant.

He is Salim Ismail, the Founding Executive Director of Singularity University, the Lead Author of one of my favorite books of all time, Exponential Organizations, and most recently, the Founder of ExO Works.
