Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes.
This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations, one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause.

When you donate crypto to Music in the Mountains, we immediately convert your donation to U.S. Dollars, which means all donations are non-refundable. Please only send currencies listed on the widget.
