Donate Cryptocurrency

When you donate cryptocurrency to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, you will help make the dream of a loving, permanent family a reality for more youth waiting to be adopted from foster care.

All gifts of cryptocurrency are dedicated to advancing the Foundation’s mission and will not be designated to a specific campaign or location.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)3 charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it from your taxes.
