Crypto for the Chimps

Your donation of cryptocurrency will help give more than 300 former research chimpanzees a wonderful new life at sanctuary.

As the world’s largest chimpanzee sanctuary, Chimp Haven provides sanctuary retirement to more than 300 chimpanzees who were formerly used in biomedical research, complete with expert veterinary care, fresh, healthy meals, large family groups, forested habitats, and, best of all, the freedom to choose how to spend their days.

Save on Your Taxes by Donating Crypto

Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money. The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax-efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, 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. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference is sometimes more than 30 percent.
