Donate with cryptocurrency

Invest in Kids strives to be at the forefront of innovation and best practices, including in our fundraising efforts. Hence our new option to donate with cryptocurrency! We are excited to embrace the technology that allows us to benefit from this new platform to securely accept and exchange cryptocurrency donations. 

What is crypto?

Cryptocurrency is the overall category of digital coins that can be used as a form of payment. It's a form of currency that only exists in the digital world and that works with cryptography to keep transactions secure. 

The good news is that cryptocurrencies are classified as property by the IRS. So, donors who give cryptocurrency to Invest in Kids do not owe capital gains taxes on the appreciated assets and can deduct it from their taxes. 

How does it work?

We've partnered with The Giving Block to allow giving with cryptocurrency.

We accept the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Zcash (ZEC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Chainlink (LINK).

Additional questions? Send them to Maribeth Waldrep at mwaldrep@iik.org, we'd be happy to guide you through this new way of giving.
