Crypto donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to support the Family Services mission. The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so your crypto donations to 501(c)(3) charities like ours receive the same treatment as stocks. Donating crypto is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and you can deduct it on your taxes. Please contact your financial adviser for more information.

To start donating crypto from your  cryptocurrency wallet, please use the form to the right by selecting your cryptocurrency type and completing the information. You can find a list of all our accepted cryptocurrencies in the FAQs below.
