Why donate cryptocurrency to World Vision

Why World Vision?

World Vision is a different kind of investment. Our focus is on helping the most vulnerable children overcome poverty and experience fullness of life. We help children of all backgrounds, even in the most dangerous places, inspired by our Christian faith.

If you were fortunate enough to stack away lots of SATS in the last bull run, consider making an even greater investment by donating cryptocurrency to World Vision. Here’s why:

Every 60 seconds, a family gets water, a hungry child is fed, and a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.

In just five years, together we impacted the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty.

World Vision is reaching one new person with clean water every 10 seconds and reaches three more schools every day.

Over the last 10 years, 89% of the severely malnourished children we treated made a full recovery.

Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, four more children benefit, too.

If you donate appreciated cryptocurrency that has been held longer than one year, you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it from your taxes.

Cryptocurrency donation FAQs

How will my crypto donation be used?

Please note that cryptocurrency donations made through this page support World Vision’s entire mission and will not be designated to a specific campaign or location. You can be confident that your gift will be used where it is needed most.


Will I have to pay capital gains tax when I donate cryptocurrency?

The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so crypto 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 from your taxes. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.
