Tax Savings (read below)

The Giving Block only equips registered charities to accept crypto donations. Because crypto is classified as property by the IRS (and many other tax agencies globally), in addition to a write off, you do not have to pay capital gains tax on donated crypto. Consult a tax professional to confirm specifics. Or contact us to be put in touch with one.

To receive a tax receipt, you must enter your email at the end of the widget. Your email can be de-identified, and you do not need to disclose any personal information on the second page of the widget. Unless you want to stay in touch!

Why donate Bitcoin?

At the YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg, we are keeping the children of essential personnel safe and active in three day camps. All 21 schools where we ran after-care, our community centers and our 2 fitness facilities are closed so we had to furlough over 400 employees but we're slowly bringing people back as we can. We have them making daily calls to members, especially our senior members, checking on their well-being and keeping them engaged and active, We're offering fitness classes online and will shortly resume classes for folks with pre-diabetes, Parkinson's and high blood pressure online, Our remedial reading teachers are working virtually and hands-on at camp sites. And we're supporting camp kids with their online schooling as best we can within space and equipment limitations. We've partnered with other agencies who are doing blood drives and feeding programs and are actively engaged with neighboring YMCAs and nonprofits to find more ways we can leverage our assets to the benefit of our community. We've lost much of our revenue yet over 60% of our members believe in us enough to keep paying their monthly memberships to keep us going. Our bankers and vendors are supporting us with deferments and discounts. We're going to come through these trying times stronger, together.
