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 501c3 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%.
If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
Why donate Bitcoin?
We support a mentoring program for secondary school girls in Tanzania, where only 39 percent of girls are lucky enough to attend school. Those who do face significant financial, cultural, and environmental challenges that can undermine their ability to make the most of their secondary school opportunity, resulting too often in dropout. Options in life become extremely limited for a girl without an education.
But education is one piece of the equation. To succeed in an environment where odds are against her, a girl needs more. She needs education, but she also needs a role model that she can trust, who can show her her worth – and her potential. That's where our mentors come in. University-educated female mentors play a role in a girl’s life that nobody else can, creating a safe, consistent space for girls to ask questions they cannot ask of anyone else. This bond, coupled with the soft skills training girls receive through program curriculum, builds the confidence and resilience a girl needs to succeed in her education and in choosing the lives they want for themselves.
Your generous donation today will help a Tanzanian girl complete her education and make her own choices about her future.
