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).

We provide free tools and resources that make it easy to learn about and support these wonderful organizations so that you can give where it matters most and ensure that you get the most “bang for your buck.” Over the past three years, we’ve raised an average of $17 for our recommended charities for each dollar we have spent on our own operations.

All of The Life You Can Save’s recommended nonprofits are selected based on merit. The Life You Can Save does not receive any compensation for its charity recommendations, and does not take a percentage of any donations made in support of our recommended charities.

Why Donate Bitcoin to The Life You Can Save?

Your cryptocurrency gift in support of The Life You Can Save itself, or one or all of our recommended nonprofits, 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. They use simple but powerful interventions that make a real difference.

Whether it’s distributing anti-malarial 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.

The Life You Can Save offers a wide variety of giving options, described below. In addition to accepting donations for our operations or the work of one or all of our recommended charities, The Life You Can Save has also organized four special Funds for The Giving Block that allow you to give to multiple charities working on the same cause: the Lifesaving Interventions Fund, the Financial Inclusion and Freedom Fund, the Mothers and Children Fund, and the Climate Change Fund. We also offer a Smart Giving Fund, which will support a mix of charities selected by our expert evaluation staff, and a “HODL Fund” which will keep your donation in cryptocurrency rather than immediately converting it to dollars.

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 to The Life You Can Save Australia (by searching for “The Life You Can Save Australia” on The Giving Block), which will allow you to claim any relevant tax relief.

You can use the widget on this page to make your cryptocurrency gift and the “Donation Notes” field to indicate which organization or fund you would like your gift to support. Please note that if no charity has been specified in the “Donation Notes” field your donation will be used to support The Life You Can Save’s operational expenses.
Donate to The Life You Can Save Itself: To make a cryptocurrency gift in support of The Life You Can Save’s operations, write “The Life You Can Save” in the “Donation Notes” field or simply leave the “Donation Notes” field blank. Supporting The Life You Can Save’s operations can be a great way to multiply the impact of your gift: over the past three years, we’ve raised an average of $17 for our recommended charities for each dollar we have spent on our own operations.

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.
