Cryptocurrency has gained widespread popularity, and as a result, several major nonprofit charitable organisations now accept donations in this form of currency. Some examples include the Breast Cancer Charity and the Online Charity Shop. In the following section, we will discuss the benefits of donating cryptocurrency to charity, the process of making such a donation, which charities accept cryptocurrency donations, and the potential tax advantages of doing so.
Why donate cryptocurrency?
The cryptocurrency industry has a goal of creating a more fair financial system through inexpensively transferring value internationally, which could lift those without bank accounts out of poverty and bring more people into the global economy. With this same goal of helping others in mind, charitable organisations worldwide have received millions in cryptocurrency donations to aid those in need.
A higher percentage of your donation goes towards supporting the cause when you use cryptocurrency, as opposed to being taken up by payment processing fees.
Donating cryptocurrency can be a more efficient choice for both the donor and the charitable organisation. When you donate with a credit or debit card, the processing fees for the nonprofit can be as high as 3.5% or more. For example, a £500 donation would result in £17.50 being taken up by credit card fees. However, if the same donation were made in Bitcoin, the transaction fee would only be around £3 (based on the 1-2% transaction fee). By donating cryptocurrency, more of the donation goes towards supporting the organisation’s mission instead of being taken up by fees.
Donations of cryptocurrency may be tax-deductible and are generally not subject to capital gains taxes.
Not only can you support your preferred charity by making a donation of cryptocurrency, but you may also be able to claim a tax deduction for your donation to the fullest extent allowed by law. Furthermore, these donations are generally not subject to capital gains taxes. However, if you sell cryptocurrency and then donate a portion or all of the proceeds, you will likely be required to pay taxes on your earnings.
How to donate crypto
You’ll typically have three main ways to donate your cryptocurrency to a nonprofit or charitable organisation:
Donate to charity organisations that use a crypto payment processor like Breast Cancer Charity
Donate crypto directly to an organisation’s wallet using a P2P transaction like Online Charity Shop
Donate through a donor-advised fund.
