Support Nonprofits That Deliver Emergency Relief After Disasters & Conflict

Natural disasters like floods and earthquakes are often inescapable and devastating for communities. According to the Brookings Institute, there are now about 400 natural disasters annually, affecting 200 million people—an increase coming as a result of climate change. People affected by natural disasters, as well as those living in conflict or post-conflict areas, often need emergency relief in the form of shelter, food, medical services, and infrastructure rebuilding. But since disasters tend to disproportionately affect countries without adequate infrastructure to protect and respond to these events, NGOs and other organizations have emerged to meet the demand and deliver much-needed relief to millions annually.

Nonprofits in this critical line of work strive to improve the health and lives of people affected by disasters and poverty, commit to preventing and resolving deadly conflict, and respond to human sufferings in emergency and disaster situations around the world. Consider making a donation to support these organizations 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.
