Children's Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) Accepts Cryptocurrency Donations via The Giving Block


CHUF now accepts donations in the form of cryptocurrency.


CHUF now accepts tax efficient donations in the following cryptocurrencies via The Giving Block:

  • Bitcoin Donations (BTC)

  • Ethereum Donations (ETH)

  • Litecoin Donations (LTC)

  • Bitcoin Cash Donations (BCH)

  • Zcash Donations (ZEC)

  • Gemini Dollar Donations (GUSD)


By accepting cryptocurrencies, CHUF is offering cryptocurrency users the ability to support the charity in a tax efficient way. The IRS classifies cryptocurrency donations as property, meaning they are not subject to capital gains tax and are deductible on the donor's tax returns.



CHUF's mission is to make life better for children and young people who are born with or who develop heart conditions by providing lifelong support to them and their families. CHUF supports children and families who receive treatment at the Children’s Heart Unit based at the Freeman Hospital and the many other hospitals providing care for cardiac patients throughout the North of England. CHUF raises vital funds for large and small pieces of equipment, facilities, aftercare, salaries and research. CHUF’s charitable activities however, go far beyond that of providing medical equipment and personnel. The Charity provides holistic care to the children by providing services and facilities that allow Heart Heroes to develop their skills and mature as any healthy child normally would.
