Impact Index Fund: LGBTQIA+
Donate cryptocurrency to nonprofit organizations working to improve the lives of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Support LGBTQIA+ Nonprofits With One Donation
The LGBTQIA+ Impact Index Fund allows donors to make cryptocurrency charitable gifts to support multiple nonprofits at once. All donations to the fund will be split evenly among participating organizations.
The nonprofits in this fund serve the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community in numerous ways including providing policy-level advocacy and legal defense, housing and resources for LGBTQIA+ youth, and care, support and education for those living with HIV and AIDS.
Give Now to Double Your Donation’s Impact
All donations to the LGBTQIA+ Impact Index Fund will be matched through The Giving Block and Shift4’s Caring with Crypto Campaign. Shift4 CEO Jared Isaacman will personally match the first $10 million in crypto donations through the initiative.
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.
