With billions of dollars flowing from foundations, charities, and individual donors, philanthropy is making great gains in tackling many of today’s most pressing issues.

Still, there remains great potential to incentivize transparency and encourage giving by improving the processes used for tracking both funds and impact data. Blockchain, a type of digital ledger that allows foundations, nonprofits, and donors to track and analyze transactions and related activities, has shown promise as a viable solution.
