Tax Savings

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?

Founded in 2003, TLDEF has historically focused its efforts on those most pushed to the margins, including but not limited to Black trans women and trans women of color, trans and non-binary youth, poor trans people, and the intersections found among these populations within the broader transgender and non-binary community. TLDEF has lifted up critical and fundamental issues impacting the most marginalized transgender and non-binary people – violence and safety, health care and employment, access to services and public accommodations. These are the everyday issues facing transgender and non-binary people who struggle disproportionately with systemic racial, gender, and economic injustice. Despite increased visibility in recent years for the transgender community, achieving full legal and lived equality remains a challenge – even as gains are made, well-funded opposition forces continue to find new avenues to channel their hate. The movement for transgender equality must also find new ways to resource the fight for justice - we hope you'll join us by making a donation of cryptocurrency to TLDEF.
