When you donate crypto directly to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, you receive a tax deduction for the value of the crypto and avoid the capital gains tax you would have paid if you sold the crypto before donating. The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. This means donating crypto can translate into a larger donation to our organization and a higher tax deduction for yourself. If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
