Frequently Asked Questions

Why donate crypto directly?

Taxes! 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%.

What cryptocurrencies are accepted?

You can donate Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Amp (AMP), Aave (AAVE), Balancer (BAL), Bancor Network Token (BNT), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), ChainLink (LINK), Compound (COMP), Curve (CRV), Dai (DAI), Dogecoin (DOGE), The Graph (GRT), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Litecoin (LTC), Polygon (MATIC), Storj (STORJ), SushiSwap (SUSHI), Synthetix (SNX), UMA (UMA), Uniswap (UNI), Yearn.Finance (YFI), Zcash (ZEC), 0x (ZRX), 1inch (1INCH) to Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation.
