Smart Giving Fund (by The Life You Can Save)

Mission Statement

The Life You Can Save is an advocacy nonprofit that makes “smart giving simple” by identifying and recommending some of the world’s most effective charities. We currently recommend over 20 outstanding charities whose evidence-based, cost-effective interventions have been proven to save and transform the lives of people living in extreme global poverty (defined as less than US$1.90 per day).

There’s no single solution to extreme poverty, which affects nearly 10% of the world’s population. So our “Smart Giving Fund” makes it easy for you to make a single donation that will help a variety of charities that expert evaluators believe offer the best “bang for your buck.”

Why Donate Bitcoin to Smart Giving Fund (by The Life You Can Save)?

Your cryptocurrency gift in support of The Life You Can Save’s Smart Giving Fund will help transform the lives of people living in extreme global poverty for the better. Our recommended nonprofits save and improve the most lives per dollar, and are selected by experts based on merit. They use simple but powerful interventions that make a real difference.

Whether it’s distributing anti-malaria bednets that reduce mortality rates from malaria at the cost of just $3 per bednet (Against Malaria Foundation), providing affordable eye care that prevents blindness and even restores sight (Fred Hollows Foundation), or distributing cash grants that enable recipients to solve their own problems (GiveDirectly), our recommended nonprofits provide health and financial opportunities that help prevent needless suffering and empower people to lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

Anyone can donate through this page, and US donors will be able to claim any tax deductions they are legally entitled to. However, if you are an Australian donor, we recommend you donate through The Life You Can Save Australia, which will allow you to claim any relevant tax relief. To do so, search for “The Life You Can Save Australia” on The Giving Block, and enter “Smart Giving Fund” in the “Donation Notes” field while making your gift.

If you’d like to donate to The Life You Can Save itself or any of its recommended charities, please search for “The Life You Can Save” — or “The Life You Can Save Australia” for Australian donors — using The Giving Block’s search tool.

The Life You Can Save also operates four other special funds on The Giving Block: the “Mothers and Children Fund”,“Lifesaving Interventions Fund”, “Financial Inclusion and Freedom Fund”, and “Climate Change Fund”. You can find these funds using The Giving Block’s search tool. Once again, we recommend Australian donors support these funds by donating to The Life You Can Save Australia and specifying the name of the fund they’d like to give to in the “Donation Notes” field.

As a final giving option, if you’d like for The Life You Can Save to “HODL” your gift, i.e. to keep it in the cryptocurrency you donated rather than immediately converting it to dollars, please search for “The Life You Can Save HODL Fund” on The Giving Block. Please note that while anyone can donate to this fund, only US donors will be able to claim any eligible tax relief.

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.
