Donate Cryptocurrency to Citizens’ Climate Education

Donate cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin and more, to Citizens’ Climate Education! Your generous donation will help advance our climate solutions work; allowing us to train and mobilize hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens to build support for effective climate policies. Donating cryptocurrency can also provide greater tax incentives than cash donations.

Since cryptocurrency is classified as property by the IRS, it receives the same tax benefits as stock donations and real estate. When you donate cryptocurrency directly to a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, like Citizens’ Climate Education,your donation is 100% tax-deductible and you don’t have to pay capital gains tax. This can often result in a 20-30%+ larger donation and deduction than if you were to sell the asset and then donate cash proceeds. In other words, donating cryptocurrency can serve as a tax-savvy way to support our work.

We accept the following cryptocurrencies:

    • Bitcoin (BTC)
    • Ether (ETH)
    • Litecoin (LTC)
    • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
    • Dogecoin (DOGE)

    The carbon cost of cryptocurrency
    Like other currencies and important technologies that strengthen our communities, cryptocurrency and blockchain have an undeniable carbon footprint. Citizens’ Climate considers this a reminder of how important our efforts are in accelerating the transition to a global clean energy economy.
