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?
Voting rights and defending democracy in the US is more important right now than it has ever been in most of our lives. Your crypto donation ensures that we can continue to reach more voters to close voter turnout disparities and engage individuals in building a more equitable future for all people. In 2020, we reached over 6 million voters with information in 5 languages. Your donation will help us as we seek to double that number and to keep voters informed and engaged between elections.
