What happens to my cryptocurrency once it is donated?


Cryptocurrency donations are converted to U.S. dollars immediately to ensure your gift fuels our science as quickly as possible.

Can I donate anonymously? Will I still get a tax receipt?


Yes, you have the option to include an email address with your anonymous donation to receive an automatic tax receipt.

Is my donation tax-deductible?


Cryptocurrency donations are classified by the IRS as property for tax purposes. You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. You may need to file an IRS Form 8283 with your federal income tax return. Please consult with your accountant or other financial advisor on this matter.

Can I set Fred Hutch as the beneficiary of my non-fungible tokens (NFTs)?


Yes, we welcome proceeds from NFT sales. You can donate ETH or one of the supported ERC-20 tokens through The Giving Block’s donation widget.
