Support Nonprofits That Are Fighting Poverty & Building Affordable Housing Opportunities

Poverty and homelessness are global challenges that impact every community and nation. As of the most recent reporting, 700 million people, or 10% of the world’s population, live in extreme poverty, surviving on less than $1.90 per day. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic caused extreme poverty to rise in 2020, for the first time in more than two decades. As a result of the global disruption, an estimated 100 million more people are living in poverty. But money isn’t the only measure of poverty: millions globally lack access to work, proper health and nutrition, education, sanitation, and housing.

Without support from donors who care, the organizations working to reverse the growing trend will face greater, more dire obstacles to achieving their goals. Please consider making a donation to help fight poverty and provide housing to millions.

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.
