Donate Crypto

Donating Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and other cryptocurrencies to the American Cancer Society is a powerful and efficient way to support our mission to improve the lives of people with cancer and their families.

How your crypto donation can help.

The American Cancer Society Cancer Crypto Fund is working to raise $3,000,000 by 2027.

Crypto donors can choose to support specific patient support programs like Hope Lodge® and Road To Recovery®, or allocate their contribution toward cancer research.

A crypto donation equal to…

  • $50 can help provide 1 free ride and invaluable relief.
  • $70 can help provide hope in the form of 1 free night of lodging.


Donating crypto can save lives

We are improving the lives of people with cancer and their families as the only organization combating cancer through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer. The American Cancer Society uses crypto donations to fund these life-saving initiatives:

Are there tax benefits to donating bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies?

Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit can provide a tax benefit to some individuals when compared to converting to cash prior to donating.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes, this means it may be a more tax-efficient way to give when compared to other giving methods.

If you provide an email at the time of your donation, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.

Crypto Donation FAQs

Currently, we accept direct donations of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and supported cryptocurrencies through our donation portal powered by The Giving Block. All that is required is the most basic knowledge of conducting cryptocurrency transactions and a desire to give. While we are working to streamline the giving process across protocols, we only accept direct donations through The Giving Block's system (which is built upon our Gemini exchange account).

Scrolling through the supported assets on The Giving Block widget will show whether or not the token is an ERC-20. In these cases, The Giving Block will likely accept the Ethereum (ERC-20) version of a token which lives on multiple networks. Always verify which one is supported before donating.

Yes. You can either conduct an individual direct donation of proceeds from an NFT project, or you can set up recurring giving through two methods:

  1. Giving Block: Begin the donation process in the widget and generate a destination address compatible with the cryptocurrency you wish to donate. Once an email address is paired in step 2 (minimum info to receive receipts), tax receipts will automatically be sent to this email for all donations to this cryptocurrency address.
  2. NFTs and other projects can direct on-chain revenue to a Community Fund launched on, a crypto philanthropy platform that allows for the creation of crypto donor-advised funds. Once a fund is launched, and it has received contributions, grants can be made to charities on the platform, including ACS! Visit our charity profile page.
