Donate Cryptocurrency

Donate Cryptocurrency

Making a cryptocurrency donation is a simple and tax-efficient way to help bring solar solutions to those living in energy poverty. Your gift supports innovative solar projects that power a more equitable future for all.

Why Donate Cryptocurrency

Tax Efficiency

The IRS considers your cryptocurrency donation a non-taxable event, meaning you will not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This is why cryptocurrency donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to help SELF fight energy poverty and why financial advisors recommend donating your most highly appreciated assets first.
