Team Rubicon Accepts Cryptocurrency Donations via The Giving Block


Team Rubicon now accepts donations in the form of cryptocurrency. Team Rubicon serves communities by mobilizing veterans to continue their service, leveraging their skills and experience to help people prepare, respond, and recover from disasters and humanitarian crises.


Team Rubicon 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, Team Rubicon 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.

Donating crypto to Team Rubicon means your tax deduction and your charitable gift may instantly increase over 20%. 501c3 nonprofits are exempt from paying capital gains on the sale of assets, so the full value of your gift stays intact.

Team Rubicon is built to serve, and in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, they've launched the #NeighborsHelpingNeighbors initiative to meet the needs of our communities through safe individual acts of service. There is no playbook for this situation, but action is the only option. Team Rubicon is currently serving in communities across the country providing assistance such as delivery service for food-insecure populations, coordination and logistics support for those in temporary quarantine, as well as individual volunteers helping their neighbors leveraging the safety guidance above. These operations will continue to evolve as we navigate a new normal.
