Blockchain-based nonprofit Endaoment has announced the launch of its free developer tools for flexibly integrating philanthropic giving into a wide range of crypto-native products.
Endaoment’s newly released Software Development Kit (SDK), Application Programming Interface (API) endpoint and queryable Subgraph provide rich data, and the largest rolodex of nonprofit Ethereum addresses which creates an easy pathway to donate crypto assets. With these tools, developers can integrate blockchain infrastructure for philanthropic purposes into their project or protocol however they see fit, from generating contract calls for nonprofit donations to programmatically sending NFT royalties to a cause.
By launching this suite of tools, Endaoment is giving developers direct access to their industry-leading address book of thousands of nonprofit crypto wallets for easy donation integrations, without needing to interact directly with the Endaoment web app.
“One of the most common requests we get is for a list of all nonprofit addresses. These tools put those addresses at any developers’ fingertips. As we continue to build through crypto’s market retracements, the Endaoment team knows it’s important to continue lifting the industry up by sharing the tools we’ve worked so hard to create in an effort to make donating crypto to nonprofits as easy as possible,” said Robbie Heeger, President and CEO of Endaoment. “Our V2 upgrade this fall brought us fully composable contract addresses for all nonprofits in our ecosystem, and these developer tools are now empowering builders to surface these endpoints in their own applications.”
This announcement follows Endaoment’s V2 launch of its protocol in fall of 2022, which made it the first and only platform to offer fully-composable smart contract addresses for nonprofits and crypto-native portfolio allocations for investing idle assets contributed to donor-advised funds. The SDK launch paired with the V2 update now allows the composable smart contract addresses to be easily integrated into other applications. Endaoment is currently the only platform to offer smart contracts with fully composable addresses for any 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is in good standing with the IRS—a feature that is completely free to nonprofits.
The Endaoment ecosystem will continue its decentralization journey in 2023; Endaoment.Org will become the first U.S. Public Charity to have its board oversight powered by token-gated governance. More information on the launch of Endaoment’s governance module will be shared later this year.
“Introducing this developer toolkit is not only a novel upgrade in improving the ease and process of philanthropic giving on-chain, but the value and reach it will bring thousands of nonprofits and their beneficiaries is why we do what we do,” said Pedro Yan Ornelas de Oliveira, Endaoment’s Senior Backend Engineer. “Endaoment is determined to restore faith in crypto philanthropy, and our SDK shows how the community can easily and positively impact the world, one token at a time.”
Endaoment.Org is the first on-chain 501(c)(3) public charity, established with the mission of managing and encouraging the charitable contributions of digital assets. Federally tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3), Endaoment is built to facilitate tax-deductible donations of more than 1,000 cryptocurrencies to any nonprofit in the United States, providing philanthropic financial services to the blockchain community and introducing nonprofit organizations to the benefits of blockchain technology. Donors can give through Endaoment using its Donor-Advised Funds, Community Funds, and Direct Donations, all of which charge industry-low fees to maximize throughput to recipient organizations.

Endaoment.Tech builds the Endaoment protocol and web interfaces for use by real-world administrators providing Philanthropic, Planned Giving, and Wealth Management services. The Endaoment protocol is aimed at balancing regulatory requirements with decentralization by using token-powered governance to oversee our real-world entity administrators. Together, our software and service entities create a full-featured asset management institution for crypto investors that doesn’t compromise on core values held by the crypto community.
