In the U.S., the IRS classifies cryptocurrencies are property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)(3) charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event; you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. All cryptocurrency donations are final, and we do not offer refunds. No goods, services, or airdrops will be offered in exchange for cryptocurrency donations. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.
We strongly suggest that you explicitly treat all cryptocurrency donations as final and do not offer refunds. Also make it clear that no goods, services or airdrops will be offered in exchange for cryptocurrency donations. An example of our donation refund policy is here.
