Impact Index Fund:
Arts & Culture
Support charities focused on artistic and cultural programming and education with a single donation.
Support Nonprofits That Promote Arts & Culture
A vibrant artistic culture is one of the signs of a thriving society. In the United States, art is seen as both a way of life and big business, from Las Vegas to Nashville to Hollywood, and everywhere in between. In fact, arts and culture account for 4.2 percent of the U.S. economy, driven by activities like museum admissions, expensive film productions, and Broadway ticket sales. But our love of cultural products contrasts with the bleak funding situation for arts education and cultural preservation programs, which are under-resourced despite research that shows the many benefits of the arts on academic performance and mental wellbeing.
Fortunately, the nonprofit organizations devoted to arts and culture are working to provide access to arts education, preserve and exhibit art, and perform dances and plays. If you have seen firsthand the benefits of the arts, please consider making a donation to this Impact Index Fund.
Arts & Culture Nonprofits You’ll Support
The Arts & Culture Impact Index Fund supports nonprofit organizations that advocate for arts and culture 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 Arts & Culture 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.
