Donation Process Revisited
About This Post
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 reimbursements.
The process model below depicts the interaction between a Contributor and the Crypto for the Homeless organization during the donation process.
