Donate Cryptocurrency

Currently, the YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg accepts the following cryptocurrencies: 

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Ethereum (ETH)
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Zcash (ZEC)
  • Gemini Dollar (GUSD)

Why donate cryptocurrency?

If you're a donor in the U.S., the IRS treats cryptocurrency donations like stocks, meaning you do not have to pay capital gains tax on your appreciated cryptocurrency and can write it off on your taxes. This is also the case in many other countries around the world, but please check with a tax professional for guidance.
