Why support WaterAid?
Right now, for millions of people around the world, collecting dirty water and not being able to wash your hands are a normal part of daily life.
Your gift will fund practical solutions, enabling us to get these essentials – clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene – to everyone, everywhere, within a generation.
As the world waits for a vaccine for COVID-19, handwashing with clean water is the best line of defense against the virus.
Donate in cryptocurrency to fund handwashing facilities, clean water access and decent toilets and be part of the solution.
Donate in crypto now
Cryptocurrency has become more mainstream and after several requests from donors we are now set up to accept donations in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, ZCash and Gemini Dollars.
As our work evolves (we are currently responding to the Coronavirus threat) we need more agile fundraising tactics so we are better able to plan and allocate funds.
What are the advantages of donating in cryptocurrency?
Anonymity - Building on the anonymity of cryptocurrency, donors who donate in crypto can choose to remain entirely anonymous to us. Anyone who wants to can tick a box to share their email to receive impact updates, but this is optional.
Simplicity - Our crypto platform, The Giving Block, provides the tax receipts via email.
Tax-efficiency - Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes them one of the most tax efficient ways to support your favorite cause and is why financial advisors recommend donating your most highly appreciated assets first.
