Impact Index Fund: Animals

Support US-based charities devoted to animal rights and protection with a single donation.


Support Nonprofits That Protect, Foster, and Rehabilitate Animals

The ethical treatment of animals goes far beyond providing comfort and eliminating harm. In fact, the global state of animal treatment paints an alarming portrait of humans and our relationship with the other inhabitants of our world. Did you know, for example, that no laws currently protect animal rights on factory farms in the US, or that animal agriculture is responsible for 56 percent of water usage in the nation? Humans may co-exist on our planet with thousands of other species, but our actions often show blatant disregard for our friends in the air, land, and sea.

The nonprofits working to address these issues are staffed by passionate advocates for animal rights, savvy legal minds, and empathetic caregivers. Together, their collective charitable work can build animal rehab centers, fight for legal solutions to animal abuse, and arrange for foster care for millions of animals. Please consider making a donation in support of animals.

Animal Nonprofits You’ll Support

The Animals Impact Index Fund supports US-based nonprofit organizations that advocate for and rehabilitate animals across the United States and worldwide. We’ve vetted every nonprofit in the Impact Index Fund, so you can be certain every dollar of your crypto donation will go to verified nonprofits. When you donate to the Animals Impact Index Fund, each nonprofit will receive an equal portion of your donation.

Save on Your Taxes by Donating Crypto

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.
