CRYPTO Donation FAQs:

Why Donate Cryptocurrency?

The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501c3 nonprofits like SEE Turtles are treated the same as stocks.

Donating cryptocurrency is a β€œnon-taxable event,” meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.
