Why does the LA Phil accept cryptocurrency?
Crypto Philanthropy is a new and thrilling fundraising avenue for nonprofit organizations like the LA Phil. With more than 300 million crypto users worldwide and the value of many cryptocurrencies rising, the crypto community is poised to make a wide-reaching impact through philanthropy. Donating crypto is also one of the most tax-efficient ways for individuals to support causes that matter to them. We are excited about what the future holds in the crypto and blockchain space and believe that we’ve just scratched the surface of its true fundraising potential.
Are crypto donations tax-deductible?
Yes! Crypto donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to give to charity. Your crypto donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law if you pay taxes in the U.S. By making a charitable gift, you may also be eligible to significantly reduce what you would otherwise owe in capital gains taxes. For donations over $5,000, please follow up with your tax adviser about securing an appraisal.
As with any tax-related questions, be sure to consult with a qualified, professional tax advisor. Get more information about lowering your crypto taxes.
