Technology and Science

Support Nonprofits That Advocate For Technology & Science

Science has helped solve some of the universe’s greatest mysteries, cure deadly diseases, and uncover countless insights into our world. Meanwhile, the technological sector has redefined our world in the modern age. The internet, for example, has created an interconnected “Global Village,” the likes of which we have never seen in human history. Today, blockchain and cryptocurrency are ushering in a new era for business and finance. But despite all this tremendous progress, millions of people lack access to computers, putting them at an economic disadvantage. And with government budgets under careful scrutiny, public funding for scientific research is under threat.

Help bridge the digital divide that separates the rich and poor, fund critical research, and foster a new generation of STEM leaders. Please consider making a donation to help nonprofits continue to advocate for and advance science and technology at all levels of society.

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.
