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.

BFan is led by founding mother-daughter team Donna and Hannah Bontrager, who create the Company’s repertoire as resident choreographer-producers. BFan's genre-defying all-original contemporary ballet premieres include many original works of full-length contemporary narrative ballet premieres since 2007—including a rock opera ballet version of Cinderella, a roaring 20's Parisian jazz version of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, a Wild West spin on Shakespeare’s As You Like It...and many more. BFan has forged new cross-disciplinary collaborations with sculptors, choirs, opera and soloist vocalists, symphony and chamber orchestras, literary and visual artists, actors, break dancers, circus artists, and composers from our Northwest home and across the country.
