Did you know that Moneythink is one of the first ed-tech nonprofits to accept cryptocurrency donations?

We consistently transform our approach to meet evolving student needs and believe innovative solutions should extend to our support programs. Since 2008, we’ve helped students access millions of dollars in financial aid and avoid crushing debt. Without the burden of loan repayment, students put their capital into local economies and support themselves and their communities. Read more about our mission, and commitment to equity and belonging, here.

Where your donations go

Donations made through this widget support Moneythink’s entire mission and will not be designated to a specific campaign or location. Your gift will be used where it is needed most. About 80 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to our programs that benefit students and their communities.

In the beginning I was pretty confused. The fact that I didn’t really understand between a CSU, a UC, or a private or public says a lot. I felt behind…DecidED is like a free college counseling system, except even better because once you put in your information it’s personalized. It’s such a relief.”

Is my cryptocurrency donation to Moneythink tax deductible?

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, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support our cause.
