Hearts & Homes for Refugees




Mission Statement

We partner with resettlement agencies to welcome, assist and advocate for refugees. Our ever-growing network of volunteers — families, neighbors, community organizations, and people of goodwill from all faith and civic groups — is committed to offering refugees hope and opportunity. In keeping with time-honored American tradition, we offer refuge to those fleeing violence and persecution, and identify and tap resources that aid refugee populations. We use our expertise and experience to educate, inspire and equip others to welcome the stranger.

Tax Savings (read below)

The Giving Block only equips registered charities to accept crypto donations. Because crypto is classified as property by the IRS (and many other tax agencies globally), in addition to a write off, you do not have to pay capital gains tax on donated crypto. Consult a tax professional to confirm specifics. Or contact us to be put in touch with one.

To receive a tax receipt, you must enter your email at the end of the widget. Your email can be de-identified, and you do not need to disclose any personal information on the second page of the widget. Unless you want to stay in touch!

Why donate Bitcoin?

Hearts & Homes for Refugees is an early adopter of cryptocurrency and understand its role in changing the world, particularly in the world of giving where crypto donors are having a profound impact in the most needed areas.

We are the recipient of a Pineapple grant in 2017. Because of that bitcoin donation, Hearts & Homes has been able to build a deeply rooted grassroots welcoming movement by tapping the energy and goodwill of thousands of volunteers and supporters who have helped resettle our new neighbors and changed the lives of hundreds of refugees and asylees in our area.

When we received the Pineapple grant, the financial impact was organization-altering. There was an unexpected outcome. The nascent welcoming movement was inspired by the faith of one anonymous donor and an overwhelming number of people wanted to be part of welcoming refugees. In fulfilling our mission, we recognize our commitment to the refugees but also to those joiners who depend on Hearts & Homes to continue providing opportunities to advocate and stand up for our newest neighbors.
