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?

Founded in 1999, Friends is the principal advocacy organization working to garner public dollars for Hudson River Park’s construction and monitor Park progress under the Hudson River Park Act. Friends’ advocacy efforts helped secure over $250 million in capital funding to design and build Hudson River Park, and to hasten the relocation of incompatible municipal facilities on designated parkland.

Friends works in partnership with the Hudson River Park Trust to identify fundraising opportunities so that sufficient funding is available to complete the Park, augment operating resources, fund public programs, build an endowment, and guarantee that the Park remains in world-class.

Accepting crypto will help us reach a wider, more diverse audience and enable us to promote our mission for Hudson River Park in a new way by capturing donors who are interested in donating crypto.
