Support Nonprofits That Support Economic Development

Global economics may be focused on national GDP figures, but there are other important metrics that determine growth on more local, community levels, such as unemployment levels, socioeconomic mobility, and financial stability. Unfortunately, fixing some of the barriers to economic empowerment is more difficult than reforming unfair policies or demanding governmental intervention. Many nations lack the infrastructure to mobilize their economies, resulting in stagnant or even declining business development trends.

Whether by empowering rural women farmers, training young leaders on sustainable business practices, or fighting to end the economic violence caused by prejudicial systems, there are plenty of nonprofits working to equal the playing field and make a difference in the lives of ordinary people. If you want to help provide resources to improve the social and economic conditions for millions, consider making a donation to this Impact Index Fund today.

Economic Development Nonprofits You’ll Support

The Economic Development Impact Index Fund supports US-based nonprofit organizations that support economic development through community-focused initiatives 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 Economic Development 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.
