Donate Cryptocurrency to RACF

Donate Bitcoin to Charity


Why sell your cryptocurrency holdings and donate the after-tax remainder to charity when you can donate cryptocurrency directly to charity...

The Internal Revenue Service classifies cryptocurrency donations as property. Therefore, your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Please consult your tax advisor who will advise you on your specific situation. Laws change frequently. Also, this material is for informational purposes only, and is not intended to provide, and should not be relied on for, tax, legal or accounting advice.


  1. Your tax deductible donation will equal the fair market value of the cryptocurrency donation. 
  2. You will pay no capital gains tax on the gift.*
  3. RACF will receive the full value of your contribution to help children with rare diseases get groundbreaking American medical care.


  • Original purchase price: $10,000

  • Current Fair Market Value: $100,000

  • Federal long-term capital gains rate: 23.8%
    (Assumes assets held more than one year and maximum rate of 20% + Medicare surtax of 3.8%)(State and local taxes may also apply)

  • Long Term Capital Gain: $90,000
    ($100,000 minus the original purchase price of $10,000)

  • Capital Gains Tax: $90,000 x 23.8% = $21,420

  • Donate $100,000 to RACF and save $21,420 in taxes.
