Tax Savings

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?

Leket Israel, Israel’s National Food Bank and largest food rescue organization annually provides 40,000,000+ lbs. of excess fresh produce and hot meat meals to hundreds of thousands of Israelis in need per week, of all backgrounds (the elderly including Holocaust survivors, the working poor, teens and children at risk and many more). The surplus food is “rescued” from hundreds of farmers, corporate cafeterias, hotels and the IDF, (the food, worth millions of dollars, would otherwise be destroyed or left to rot in a landfill) and delivered, free of charge, to 200,000 struggling Israelis through Leket Israel’s 200+ non-profit partners. Leket Israel is apolitical and is the only organization rescuing food en masse for Israelis in need. The organization hosts 50,000 volunteers from around the world each year.

Each USD donation of $1 provides 6 lbs. of fresh food. Your donation makes it possible to rescue and deliver fresh food to struggling Israelis, including hundreds of families in need, the elderly, the newly unemployed and many more.
