A: Donating Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be a tax-efficient way to support your favorite non-profit. The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes, which may allow you to decrease your tax obligations while making a gift to a nonprofit charity.
When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the crypto’s fair market value at the donation time. By donating crypto directly, you may be able to avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a cash donation. This ultimately means you may be able to donate more, as well as deduct more from your taxes. The capital gains tax will vary based on several factors. To learn more, consult a tax professional.
