Make an Impact and Change Lives with Cryptocurrency

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.

What are the Financial Benefits?

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.

Can I donate cryptocurrency anonymously?

Donors are required to provide their name and contact information so the Community Foundation can send a contribution acknowledgement letter and ensure your donation is transferred to the correct fund. This letter is needed for your tax deduction.

Will I get a receipt with my donation?

Yes, after the transaction is processed, you will receive an electronic contribution acknowledgement letter to the email provided in the donation.
