Donate Cryptocurrency Bequest



World Literacy Foundation accepts cryptocurrencies!

Do you believe that education and service can change the world? We do, too – especially as disparities in learning opportunities worsen around the world. Join the fight to break the cycle of illiteracy, and low expectations using one of the most tax-efficient methods: donating cryptocurrency.

Crypto donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to support World Literacy Foundation Because of the way cryptocurrencies are classified by the IRS, donating crypto is considered a non-taxable event, meaning you don’t owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and you can deduct it from your taxes. Crypto donations to 501c3 charities – like World Literacy Foundation – receive the same tax treatment as stocks

They may have specific instructions or forms that you need to complete. Provide information: Be prepared to provide information about the person you are honoring or remembering, including their full name, the reason for the gift, and your own contact information. Decide on the donation amount: You can choose to make a one-time donation or set up a recurring donation in the person's name. The charity may also have specific donation levels or suggested amounts. Notify the honoree or family: If you are designating a gift in honor of someone, consider notifying them or their family about the donation. This can be a meaningful way to show your appreciation and support. Follow up: Follow up with the charity to make sure that your donation was received and that it was designated correctly. You may also want to ask if they offer any acknowledgment or recognition for these types of gifts.
