A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization

Fugue Foundation

Our mission is to utilize open source technologies and decentralized funding methods to support projects and organizations tackling the world's greatest challenges. And we believe that the principles of effective altruism provide one of the most robust frameworks for prioritizing our efforts. Whether it's helping poor, disadvantaged, and vulnerable populations, encouraging good stewardship of the planet, or maintaining internet freedoms that enable basic human rights online, we are ready to do more.

Decentralized Applications

Public, permissionless apps running smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain are some of the primary tools we use to promote our charitable, nonprofit goals.Learn more >>

Public API

Blockchain Consultation

We are helping our nonprofit partners find new ways to integrate blockchain technology into their adminstrative and fundraising practices. We are not financial advisors. Instead we assist organizations in navigating technical frontiers, for example, how to best harness the unique properties and capabilities of cryptocurrencies, onboarding them into the new digital economy wherever possible and practical.
