What is cryptocurrency?
According to Forbes, “a cryptocurrency is a digital, encrypted, and decentralized medium of exchange. Unlike the U.S. Dollar or the Euro, no central authority manages and maintains a cryptocurrency’s value. Instead, these tasks are broadly distributed among a cryptocurrency’s users via the internet.”

What are the tax benefits of donating cryptocurrency?
Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event. Donors do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated crypto that is donated and can typically deduct the donation’s fair market value on their taxes. This often makes Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause. Talk to a crypto-savvy tax professional or connect with The Giving Block to get connected with one.

Can I save money on my taxes by donating crypto?
There’s a reason high net-worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.
The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.
Can I have a tax receipt?
If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
Can I donate anonymously and still get a tax receipt?
Yes, if you wish to donate anonymously, you can submit only an email to receive an automatic tax receipt and provide no further personal information.
Can I get a refund for my crypto donation?
All cryptocurrency donations are nonrefundable. No goods, services, or airdrops will be offered in exchange for cryptocurrency donations.
