WHAT IS CRYPTOCURRENCY?2023-02-13T16:59:19-08:00

Cryptocurrency is a form of digital currency that uses cryptography and blockchain technology to encrypt, secure, and verify transactions and proof of ownership. They do not require a central authority, such as a traditional financial institution or bank, to maintain their systems. 

Cryptocurrency is designed to transfer units of value between users in a secure and confidential way. Each unit is a digital asset, sort of like a computer file, and operates using blockchain technology.  

A blockchain is a digital ledger of transactions that record all of the transaction history for a cryptocurrency. Unlike traditional financial systems that often use a central banking system model, blockchains rely on a decentralized network of computers to verify each and every transaction. 

Due to the high-growth potential, many see cryptocurrency as the future of currency and finance! 

WHY MAKE A NON-CASH DONATION?2023-02-13T16:59:27-08:00

Crypto donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to give to charity. Your crypto donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law if you pay taxes in the U.S. By making a charitable gift, you may also be eligible to significantly reduce what you would otherwise owe in capital gains taxes.  

Donating cryptocurrency that you have owned for more than one year and that has increased in value may provide better tax benefits than selling the asset and giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the investment. You avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in value over the original cost of the crypto. 

You can find additional resources at The Giving Block. If one of the reasons you are donating is for tax benefits, we strongly encourage you to consult with your financial advisor before giving.
