Your donation will help support Lighthouse’s mission to build equitable communities that alleviate poverty. It will provide emergency shelter, food, housing support, follow-up care, and more to local families in need.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. 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. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
