In the last two years, we’ve seen hundreds of millions of dollars donated in the form of cryptocurrency, mostly in Bitcoin and Ethereum.
The price of Bitcoin (and many other cryptocurrencies) surged in late 2017 - early 2018. As a result, we saw an explosion in crypto donations made to the small number of nonprofits which were equipped to accept it.
Why donate cryptocurrency specifically?
“In the United States, and many other jurisdictions, cryptocurrencies are classified as property for tax purposes (like stocks). This means that when you donate appreciated crypto directly to a nonprofit, you don’t owe capital gains tax on those earnings, and neither does the nonprofit. You can donate more, and pay less in taxes. It’s that simple.” [The Giving Block]
Cryptocurrency prices are rising, and nonprofits are looking to capitalize on it. The first step is equipping your organization to accept crypto donations.
