Taking a digital approach to museum fundraising

Digital fundraising is limitless. It allows institutions to engage with a global audience and meet their philanthropy goals while attracting new patrons. By leveraging existing collections or partnering with emerging artists, institutions can maximize their revenue potential and fundraise for important, timely and mission-aligned causes.

Digital collectible to fundraiser: key benefits

  • Measured success

    The digital opportunity is huge. 45% of crypto users donate at least $1,000 to charity each year (Source: Fidelity Charitable). This is almost 10x the average online cash donation.

  • Dynamic philanthropy

    Traditionally, fundraising efforts often require long-term patron development. However, engaging with a digital audience enables institutions to become more dynamic. This liberal approach to philanthropy mirrors the behavior of digital generations, who support more diverse causes. Through meaningful engagement, museums can expect a more varied, democratized patron community.

  • Long term growth

    This approach to fundraising offers new, unique opportunities to engage with patrons. For example, NFTs collected as part of a fundraiser can provide benefits such as access to exhibitions, or invitations to benefit galas.

Using digital collectibles for fundraising and philanthropy

NFT technology creates a new way to engage with art and cultural institutions. The opportunity is ever-increasing, as transactions for digital collectibles are projected to reach $1.6 billion in 2023 (source: Statista). The path to increased revenue is clear, while philanthropy potential has remained relatively untapped for most institutions - until now.
