Engiven Is the Go-to Crypto Donation Platform for Roman Catholics in D.C.


The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. has selected Engiven as the platform through which his church will accept its next round of donations. The big clincher? Engiven is a cryptocurrency-based non-profit donation enterprise, meaning all money going to charities or other companies through Engiven is doled out in digital currency.

Engiven Will Help with Your Church’s Crypto Donations

The Archdiocese has announced that the company’s services will be utilized to enhance ministries all over the region and enable churches to become more digitally compliant. Joseph Gillmer – executive director of development for the Archdiocese – explained enthusiastically in a recent interview:

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. seeks to leverage technology to engage parishioners in new and exciting ways, making it easier for the faithful to fulfill the mission of the church to spread the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. Engiven is helping us to fulfill the mission of the church by providing an advanced, yet easy to use cryptocurrency donation platform with the flexibility for the faithful to support more than 300 parishes, schools, and ministries in the greater Washington, D.C. region.

The idea of churches accepting donations in crypto is an idea that has gained serious traction in recent years. Things really began to pick up during the days of the coronavirus pandemic when people were afraid to be around each other or handle items that had been touched by people they didn’t know. In the case of churches, most donations are garnered via collection plates, where people pass them to each other to drop money inside.

While this may have done the job for many years, we have now entered an era where contactless communities are becoming the norm, and thus many churches – including the Back Bay Baptist Church of Mississippi – have said “yes” to crypto donations for those who wish to give money to their places of worship but are worried about potentially becoming ill.

James Lawrence – the CEO and co-founder of Engiven – threw his two cents into the mix, saying:

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. serves the geographic nerve center of our country, providing critical services to its citizens’ spiritual and physical well-being. The Engiven platform was designed to enable enterprise-wide crypto giving solutions for this exact type of implementation, and we’re excited to support their ministry efforts as they grow and engage with their community.

What Do You Wish to Use?

The way it all works is Engiven will provide a page on its website of churches and parishes that are willing to accept crypto donations. From there, people will be able to choose which institutions they want to give to and which currencies they want to utilize.

Engiven was founded in 2018 and has since become the go-to platform for donating crypto to religious firms and other non-profits.
