Will I get a receipt with my donation?

You will receive a receipt for your donation via email. You must enter your email when prompted in our widget above. At this time, DRIF does not accept anonymous cryptocurrency donations.

Is my cryptocurrency donation tax deductible?

In the US, the IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)(3) charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.

In the UK, your cryptocurrency donations to a charity may be eligible for relief from capital gains tax, with the transfer taking place on a no-gain, no-loss basis. Cryptocurrency donations do not qualify for gift aid. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.
