The Atlas Society
Founded in 1990, The Atlas Society’s mission is to share with a new generation Ayn Rand’s message that reason, individualism, achievement, benevolence, and ethical self-interest are the moral foundations for political liberty, personal happiness, and a flourishing society.Young people are consuming content in radically new ways. That is why in 2016 The Atlas Society launched an across-the-board multimedia effort to fight collectivism on moral grounds and in wildly creative ways that connect with the under-25 crowd. Our videos, social media, activism materials, and comics don’t fight collectivism by brandishing facts alone –– but by firing the imagination and connecting liberty to personal ethics.
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?
