Why donate Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to the American Cancer Society?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we experienced the steepest funding shortfall in our hundred-year history, reducing our ability to fund cancer research by 50% that year. Fortunately, crypto can help us not only right the ship but set a course for a vastly better future. How can you help us?

Support the Cancer Crypto Fund

In 2021, we launched the first round of our Cancer Crypto Fund campaign with the goal of raising $1 million towards critical cancer research. In Spring 2022, we met this goal, proving that crypto philanthropy can have a real impact in the fight to end cancer in our lifetime. We are excited for what following rounds of the Cancer Crypto Fund will hold as we further engage and explore this exciting new realm of digital finance and commerce.

Save on your Taxes by Donating Crypto

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

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 your favorite cause. 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 from your taxes. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

Wall of Honor

We want to thank the individuals, teams, projects, and protocols that support our mission. All donors who give $10,000 or more will be featured on the Cancer Crypto Fund Wall of Honor. Special recognition for Visionaries ($250,000), Leaders ($100,000+) and Trailblazers ($50,000).
