The National Crowdfunding & Fintech Association (NCFA) is a non-profit that provides education, market intelligence, networking opportunities and more to thousands of community members. They work closely with industry, government, partners, and affiliates to create a vibrant and innovative fintech and funding industry in Canada . Earlier this month, NCFA announced the launch of their first ever Charity Auction. The auction will be held at their annual Fintech & Financing Conference — FFCON21. The auction is being held to support the CanadaHelps COVID-19 Healthcare & Hospital Fund which provides funding to more than 110 hospital foundations across Canada that are supporting urgent needs in response to COVID-19. 

The auction, which kicks off on May 13th, the final day of FFCON21, and runs until June 9th, 2021, features unique donations from artists and organizations including Liquid Avatar, Pierre Bourque, Blockchain Intelligence Group, SuperWorld and Nathan McCrorey, and more!

Interested collectors can access the auction and bid on items on Blockparty’s new NFT marketplace using this link.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the generosity of all the artists and organisations contributing to this auction in aid of hospitals across Canada,” said Craig Asano, Founder and CEO, NCFA. “Their donations will support an incredibly important initiative that has been instrumental in providing the lifesaving aid and critical equipment needed to combat the COVID-19 crisis.”

Over the course of the auction, Oasis Digital Studios will be adding additional items in support of CanadaHelps’ COVID-19 Healthcare and Hospital Fund.
