Be Charitable With Cryptocurrency

If you own Bitcoin or another digital currency, chances are it is worth a lot more than what you paid for it. Bitcoin is one of the best-performing assets over the past 5 to 10 years. Many investors have a very low-cost basis and should evaluate the tax implications before cashing in.

One option that can save you on taxes: Using cryptocurrency to support our Mission.

Your Benefits

Your cryptocurrency gift to one of our Providence foundations qualifies for an income tax deduction for its fair market value, up to 30% of your adjusted gross income with a five-year carryover. If you have held your cryptocurrency for more than a year, you also avoid the capital gains tax you would pay if you sold it.

How It Works

Step 1: Ask if the charitable organization accepts gifts of cryptocurrency (ours does). Alternatively, if you have a donor advised fund, confirm with them that you can transfer cryptocurrency to your account. Then you will be able to recommend a grant to a charitable organization.

Step 2: Transfer your cryptocurrency. Work with the charitable organization or your donor-advised fund provider to make the transfer via their online wallet tool.

This gift is right for you if:

  • You would like to receive a federal income tax deduction in the year you make your gift.
  • You would like to avoid capital gains tax.
  • You would like to make a difference for our patients, their families and our employees.
