Your cryptocurrency donation will help support North Shore Animal League America’s vision of a future in which all companion animals find responsible, loving homes where they are free from abuse, hunger, fear, and loneliness and receive the care and respect they deserve.

When you donate with crypto, you are taking an active role in helping us rescue more animals. Your donation also helps us provide these pets with everything they need to thrive — from essential medical care and grooming, to behavioral training and support — and then find their best adopter match.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)3 charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. 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 and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support your favorite cause.
