How to donate cryptocurrency [VIDEO]


Why donate in crypto?
Cryptocurrency donations are unique in terms of US tax classification. A cryptocurrency donation is classified as property by the IRS, which means it is not subject to capital gains tax. This helps donors minimise their tax obligations while also supporting causes that are important to them.  WaterAid is a 501(c) 3 entity, registered in the USA and all donations are tax deductible as is permitted by law. 

We accept the major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and the mighty DOGE (DOGE).
