The Giving Block and Longevity Science Foundation Announce Partnership

August 23, 2022, MIAMI – The Longevity Science Foundation, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to a longer and healthier human lifespan, has partnered with The Giving Block, the leading and most trusted Crypto Philanthropy platform, to make it faster and easier for individuals to make donations to the LSF with cryptocurrency.

With offices in the United States and Switzerland, the Longevity Science Foundation works closely with the global crypto community to raise awareness and funding for longevity science. The organisation offers research grants for projects advancing longevity science in artificial intelligence, personalised medicine, therapeutics, predictive diagnostics and more. The LSF has received more than 120 funding applications to date, with its first funding selections to be announced in Q4 2022.  

The Giving Block is the leading crypto philanthropy platform connecting nonprofits with crypto donors. More than 1,800  non-profit organisations, including national and international charities like the American Cancer Society, work with The Giving Block to tap into the growing crypto philanthropy space. In 2021, cryptocurrency users donated more than $69 million to nonprofits via The Giving Block, which represents an increase of more than 1,000% from the prior year. Meanwhile, the average value of a cryptocurrency donation was 82x larger than the average online cash donation (Source: Nonprofits Source).  

“From the LSF’s inception, it has been part of our mission to work closely with the crypto community and bring visionaries from the sector to the longevity space,” said Garri Zmudze, Executive Coordinator of the LSF. “The Giving Block is helping facilitate connections between the non-profit and crypto worlds for mutual benefit. We are honoured to work together.”
