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?
Your Bitcoin gift makes it possible for SELF to develop and deliver solar solutions to those living without access to electricity. One of SELF’s many initiatives is its Solar Market Garden (SMG) project in Benin which combine solar pumps with drip irrigation to grow nutritious food and empower women farmers. Watch the brief video below to learn how the project saved a little girl named Bana.
