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?
The Epilepsy Foundation is transforming into a “digital first” national nonprofit with global reach. We have the world’s most visited epilepsy website, train communities to save lives through seizure first aid and fund translational research to bring new therapies to market in a timeframe that matters...and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
“We are bullish on cryptocurrency and the power of the blockchain. To find cures for the epilepsies we need to decode the brain. Why wouldn’t we want all the benefits of the blockchain supporting this important work? Your crypto will help save lives.” -Geoff DeLizzio, Chief Development Officer
