We accept cryptocurrency contributions to all OCCF funds. Donating a gift of cryptocurrency is a simple and tax-efficient way to make a difference in your community, impacting the causes you care about most.
The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so gifts of cryptocurrency to 501 (c)3 charities like the Orange County Community Foundation are tax deductible. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.
