Donate Cryptocurrency to Fuel the healing power of adventure

Since 2001, First Descents has served over 10,000 participants and we’re committed to expanding programs, building community, and prescribing adventure for years to come.

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 on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support your favorite cause!

If you want to learn more about how donating crypto can lower your taxes, check out thegivingblock.com/faq. Don’t forget to talk to a crypto-savvy tax professional or connect with The Giving Block to get connected with one.

Other Ways to Give

If you wish to make a personal gift to First Descents, please consider donating, joining our monthly giving society, the FD Current, or donating through Paypal.
