Third Millennium Alliance
Third Millennium Alliance (TMA) is dedicated to protecting and regenerating the most threatened tropical forest on Earth in collaboration with local communities. Working in the last remnants of Ecuador's coastal forest we promote a culture in which communities recognize both the practical and intrinsic benefits of forest stewardship and help them gain the capacity to manage the land accordingly. Our primary tools used to achieve this goal are land purchase and regenerative cacao agroforestry.
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?
Coastal Ecuador has lost 98% of its forest in the past two generations due to unsustainable land management practices (i.e. slash & burn agriculture). The leading driver of this deforestation is the lack of education and economic opportunities available to rural agricultural communities.
In line with the core values of the cryptocurrency sector, our project aims to provide economic support and freedom to a marginalized population in order to IMPROVE LIVELIHOODS and STOP DEFORESTATION in its tracks.
Today, in late 2020, the price of 1 bitcoin has the potential to improve the health and wellbeing of 8 families and regenerate 8 acres of tropical rainforest! We see this as a massive opportunity and hope you'll join us in this extremely important mission.
