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

The American Cancer Society recognizes the emergence of cryptocurrency and has witnessed the generosity of the crypto community since supporting this giving method in 2021, following the worst funding shortfall in our history as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

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 on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
