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?
ROC's mission provides aid to a segment of the population that has been historically under-served. It focuses on supporting homeless abused families that are Very Low Income (below 50% Area Median Income (AMI)). Most other housing charities assist those at the 80%, or even 120%, AMI level. ROC is committed to assisting those that are the hardest to reach. ROC also works with sister charities to help its tenants secure a coordinator or case manager to ensure that the individual and their family are getting the physiological, emotional, and vocational training they need for future independent living.
Finally, ROC will develop these affordable housing units for the hardest-to-serve indigent citizens, with rehab construction costs of approximately $60,000/unit, which is less than half the average cost per affordable housing unit created by others in the country. A 2014 study on the average cost per affordable housing units in six US states conducted reported that Texas had the lowest development range of $103,943/unit  . Our lower rehabilitation costs are achieved through volunteer legal, architectural, accounting, and administrative services.
