Why Donate Cryptocurrency Directly to JDRF

JDRF now accepts cryptocurrency donations. Your tax-deductible gift supports our mission to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent, and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications.

Cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, is a great way to give to JDRF. Because the IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property, it is one of the most tax-efficient ways to support JDRF.


One of the Most Tax-Efficient Ways to Give

When you donate crypto, you receive a  tax deduction for the fair market value. You also avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto, and then made the donation to JDRF. This means you are able to donate more and deduct more from your taxes. The difference? Sometimes more than 30 percent!
If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
