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.

Why donate Bitcoin?
Mona Foundation believes that every child deserves the gift of education. Cryptocurrency donations help us give that gift. In 2019 we supported the education and empowerment of more than 429,000 students in 12 countries. We are the recipient of $1,000,000 Bitcoin grant from Pineapple Fund, and now accept other cryptocurrencies. During this unprecedent time of crisis, Mona Foundation is combating COVID19 in projects we support based on the needs at the grassroots. At Badi School in Panama, a school with 450 students, the staff mobilized and within 2 weeks they transitioned their instructions to online. The school is now reaching almost 70% of their students by leveraging Google Education Suite available to them free of charge. Google Ed allows them to have access to emails, storage, video streaming, chat rooms, google docs, etc. and enables them to deliver. NEEDS NOW INCLUDE: 8 computers for 8 staff members @about $700 each so they can record their lessons.
