How Programs Work

What is a program?

As a definition, a program is one or more projects or initiatives grouped according to certain criteria and being run by members of the Cryptor Foundation. 

How do I join an existing program?

To join a program please check the programs listed on each regional fund and request to volunteer (membership required). Thank you! 

Can anybody create a program?

No, members only have the capacity to join or start a program. If you’re not a member yet, please Join Us!

How are programs created?

The Cryptor Foundation in coordination with its network plans an agenda of activities to be developed. 

However, if you have an idea for a program and want to develop it within or in partnership with the foundation, you can submit it to us anytime. To start a program as an individual, the first milestone is to form a team group of five or more colleagues to support the initiative. As a second step, an outline of the program, including scope, goals and funds needed must be delivered for revision.

What type of programs can be developed by the Foundation?

As a general rule, programs must be created for purposes like education, advocacy, research, development and outreach.

Programs can have different formats. Some will require a physical presence (such as events), while others can be fully developed remotely with online teams (such as R&D).

In this way, the Foundation relies on the creativity and enthusiasm of its members to start up unique initiatives that encourage the community to get involved.
