WHY DONATE CRYPTO?
There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.
The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support Maui Humane Society. 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. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.
If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating via our widget.
WHAT ARE THE TAX BENEFITS OF DONATING CRYPTO?
When you donate crypto to a 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. This means donating crypto translates into a larger donation and a higher deduction. Check out the IRS Crypto FAQ or Crypto Tax Survival Guide for more info.
