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?
As Uganda faces the growing impact of COVID-19, their limited healthcare and education system is struggling to meet the needs of residence. The Ugandan Water Project has identified critical water, sanitation and hygiene gaps for the 106 health clinics in Wakiso district - home to 2 million residents. Your donation will provide rainwater harvesting systems, handwashing facilities, and water filter stations for clinics that represent the first line of defense for COVID-19. Additionally, education breaks the cycle of poverty and yet Ugandan schools are struggling to meet government requirements to provide safe water, and proper hand-washing facilities in order to allow students to return. We have 172 schools across Uganda that have been assessed and are ready and waiting for a partner. Your donation will also allow the Ugandan Water Project to provide critical projects that will equip these schools to reopen and support students long after this global pandemic is overcome. UWP completes most projects within 60 days from receiving funds and provides GPS, photos, and an impact report to donors connected to each project.
