Donating Cryptocurrency

Much like appreciated stocks, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can now be contributed to your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) at The Foundation.

Contributing cryptocurrency ensures that your tax deduction will equal the fair market value of the asset.

And, instead of paying capital gains, the full value of your cryptocurrency will be available for charitable purposes.

When donating cryptocurrency to a DAF, you are entitled to a tax deduction up to 30% of your adjusted gross income in the current tax year. The result? Giving back using non-cash assets, like cryptocurrency and stock, are among the most tax-efficient ways to ensure that more charitable resources are available to support your favorite causes.

The Foundation is now partnering with The Giving Block to facilitate these transactions and to ensure a secure, compliant, easy-to-navigate experience.
