Virunga National Park
Rest of World: Charity or Nonprofit

Donating cryptocurrency directly to a nonprofit is typically more tax efficient than other means; however, you should consult a tax professional for specifics about your country. In the US and many other countries around the world, you are able to avoid capital gains tax and deduct the fair market value from your taxes.
This varies greatly from country to country so please check with a tax professional for specifics. The Giving Block widget will provide you with a tax receipt and, depending on your circumstances and the tax rules in your country, you may be able to obtain a tax deduction.
Why donate Bitcoin?
2020 was a challenging year. The Park lost its income from tourism. The economic impact of COVID-19 led to a surge in poaching. 15 rangers were killed in the line of duty due to persisting cycles of violence in the region. These unprecedented events have impacted our ability to protect and preserve the Park.
Your crypto donation will help us prepare for 2021/2 and the growing impact of COVID-19.
You can donate Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Amp (AMP), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Chainlink (LINK), Dai (DAI), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Litecoin (LTC), Storj (STORJ), Zcash (ZEC), 0x (ZRX) to Virunga National Park
