Tax Benefit Calculator for Crypto & Stock Donations

Donations of non-cash assets like cryptocurrency and stock can be more tax-efficient than donating cash. Plus the charity receives more.

Why donate crypto or stock?

When you donate appreciated crypto or stock in the U.S., you typically avoid paying state and federal capital gains tax, enabling the charity to receive the full amount (rather than an after-tax remainder). The difference can often exceed 30%—a huge difference for you and the charity you support.

These capital gains are taxed at a rate determined by several factors, including how long you held the asset and your total income.
