Civil and human rights

Support Nonprofits That Defend Civil & Human Rights

Human and civil rights are some of the foundational pillars of democratic societies. But even in free nations, the most marginalized people in our communities are often subject to attacks, abuse, and systematic injustice. According to several studies, the prosperity of nations is correlated with better human rights protection. The nonprofits defending civil and human rights worldwide do so with the understanding that when our communities don’t live up to the highest moral standards, we all suffer. Their work involves a variety of urgent causes, such as protecting refugee and LGBTQ+ rights, promoting press freedom worldwide, and working to end child marriage.

The ongoing global fight to uphold civil and human rights is critical to making our world a safer, more just place for all. If you believe in the importance of defending human rights, consider supporting this Impact Index Fund with a donation today.

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.
