Investment Giving

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.

Giving through cryptocurrency is one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause. To learn more about how donating cryptocurrency to a charity can lower your taxes, please review The Giving Block’s tips or consult a tax professional.

To discuss donating cryptocurrency to the Foundation, please contact Lisa Rovner, Director, Development, at or 614-764-6858.

In partnership with The Giving Block, the Foundation accepts the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin(BTC), Ethereum(ETH), Basic Attention Token(BAT), Aave(AAVE), Alchemix(ALCX), Amp(AMP), Ankr Network(ANKR), Axie Infinity Shards(AXS), Balancer(BAL), Bancor Network Token(BNT), BarnBridge(BOND), Bitcoin Cash(BCH), ChainLink(LINK), Compound(COMP), Curve(CRV), Dai(DAI), Decentraland(MANA), Dogecoin(DOGE), Enjin Coin(ENJ), Fantom(FTM), Filecoin(FIL), Gemini Dollar(GUSD), Injective Protocol(INJ), Kyber Network(KNC), Litecoin(LTC), Livepeer(LPT), Loopring (LRC), Maker(MKR), Mirror Protocol(MIR), Moss Carbon Credit(MCO2), Orchid(OXT), PAX Gold(PAXG), Polygon(MATIC), Ren(REN), Skale(SKL), Somnium Space(CUBE), Storj(STORJ), SushiSwap(SUSHI), Synthetix(SNX), Tezos(XTZ), The Graph(GRT), The Sandbox(SAND), Smooth Love Potion(SLP), Terra(LUNA), TerraUSD(UST), UMA(UMA), Uniswap(UNI), Yearn.Finance(YFI), Zcash(ZEC), 0x(ZRX), 1inch(1INCH)

Give a Gift of Stock

Donating appreciated securities, such as stocks or mutual funds, is a smart and easy way to support the Foundation. Your gift of stock will help ensure that we can continue expanding our life-changing programs, including Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, which serves the longest-waiting youth in foster care, such as teenagers, siblings and children with special needs, who are counting on us today.

Just as with cash gifts, you will receive a federal income tax deduction for the full market value of any securities you donate as long as you have owned them for at least one year. Be sure to consult with your tax or legal advisory.

For more information on giving a gift of stock, read our instructions or contact Lisa Rovner, Director, Development, at or 614-764-6858.

Support the Foundation through your Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund allows you to give back to causes that are close to your heart in ways that are flexible, cost-effective, and tailored to your personal philanthropic goals. When you support the Foundation through your donor-advised fund, you help raise awareness about the urgent need for foster care adoption, advocate for adoption benefits in the workplace and support the expansion of our Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program.

Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing, most tax-efficient giving method to manage charitable donations. Donor-advised funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution to the organization or foundation administering the DAF, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

How to recommend a donor-advised fund gift to the Foundation:

  1. Request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor.
  2. Be sure to use the Foundation’s EIN # 31-1356151.
  3. You can also designate the Foundation as a beneficiary for your donor-advised fund.
