Support Nonprofits That Protect Our Environment
Despite increasing efforts to reverse climate change, we are now facing greater challenges than ever to solving this interconnected, global emergency. Greenhouse gasses released by human activity are raising the earth’s temperature, causing a variety of problems like unprecedented levels of animal extinction, destruction of stable ecosystems, and an increase in natural disasters. Beyond the need to reduce carbon emissions by enforcing major reforms to policies and making different individual choices, there are other ongoing issues such as unchecked ocean pollution, dangerous hydraulic fracking practices and oil pipeline spills that impact billions of people.
As awareness of these urgent issues grows, more nonprofit organizations have been created to address them at local and national levels. Efforts to conserve tropical rainforests, protect and clean oceans, and promote good land management are critical to maintaining a healthy planet for us all to inhabit. To help restore our world, please consider making a contribution to this Impact Index Fund.
Environmental Nonprofits You’ll Support
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.
