CSU Pueblo accepting crypto donations, public school students to receive awards

The Colorado State University Pueblo Foundation is now accepting cryptocurrency donations under a partnership with Atlanta-based Bitpay.

The university decided to accept cryptocurrency donations following donor requests and to increase engagement with younger donors, the Foundation said in a statement.

“The decision to accept cryptocurrency shows our commitment to continuing to advance our mission in an ever-changing world and financial landscape,” Foundation chair Chad Heberly said. 

“This move supports our ongoing efforts to engage with younger donors, who operate in a more digital capacity than previous generations of supporters.”

Bitpay accepts donations in Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Wrapped Bitcoin, Gemini Dollar, USD Coin, USDP Stablecoin, Dai and Binance USD.
