Donation Process [Revisited]

Crypto for the Homeless | Donation Process Model

Today, we will explore a process that takes place frequently: Donations.


The process model below depicts the interaction between a Contributor and the Crypto for the Homeless organization during the donation process.

Process Model showing activities and interactions between a Contributor and the CFTHL entity during donations.

The Contributor and CFTHL entity are placed within their own pools, and the communication between the pools is represented by the message flow, which are the dashed lines running between the activities.

A sample collaboration of the interactions between a Contributor and CFTHL is as follows:

  • The Contributor accesses the organization’s website; CFTHL displays the website and its contents.
  • The Contributor decides to donate.
  • CFTHL displays the payment information for the donation; the Contributor views the payment information.
  • The Contributor sends donations; CFTHL receives the donation.
  • CFTHL settles the donation, records the donation in The Books1, and confirms the donation; the Contributor confirms that their donation has been received.
  • CFTHL updates its content.

The purpose of this post was to showcase a little about how the donation process works, using business process diagrams, with the goal of helping our readers understand what is happening when a donation is sent. Whenever the organization receives a donation, it is immediately recorded publicly, and the funds are set for spending on future handouts and/or volunteer reimbursments.

Number of Transactions Over the Years

Dashboard 2

This is a crowdfunded project called Crypto For The Homeless. This implies that donations are gathered via the internet and then utilized to buy care packages, food, and other necessities for the homeless and poor in a specific region around the world.

Our objective is to bring the human side of the charity back into the picture, which is sorely lacking in most other programs. In order to get compensated, CFTHL volunteers must seek out homeless/houseless persons and physically bring meals to them. It’s about physically being present and handing out the meal, regardless of where they are.

The graphs above show the number of transactions that came to the organization in the form of gifts over time. The top chart [Number of Transactions by Years] displays the total number of transactions by year, whereas the bottom chart [Amount by Years] displays the total dollar amount received by year.

Volunteer Process

Crypto for the Homeless | Volunteering Process Model

Today, we’ll look at a common process: Volunteering.


We’ve already discussed how the donation and reimbursement processes work, but how does one volunteer?

Model of the activities and interactions between a Volunteer and the CFTHL entity while volunteering.

A sample interaction between a Volunteer and CFTHL is as follows:

  • A volunteer decides to give selflessly.
  • The leaflet for Crypto for the Homeless will be printed by the volunteer.
  • The volunteer will buy meals (or supplies) and pay for them out of their own money.
  • The volunteer will photograph the purchase receipt as well as the food (or supplies) to be delivered.
  • The volunteer will distribute the meals to persons in their immediate vicinity who are in need.
  • The reimbursement form will be completed by the volunteer; The form will be reviewed by CFTHL.
  • The reimbursement will be processed by CFTHL; the volunteer will be compensated.
  • CFTHL will record the return as an expenditure.

The purpose of this post was to demonstrate how the volunteer process works using business process diagrams in order to help our readers understand how to volunteer.

Volunteering is simple and may be done from anywhere in the world.
