A New Way to Give: Habitat for Humanity Now Accepts Cryptocurrency Donations

We believe giving our supporters several ways to give will ensure that we can continue to support vulnerable families in need access a safe place to call home.

Why Cryptocurrency?

With the rise in popularity of Cryptocurrency, we have seen an increase in requests from donors to donate cryptocurrency. We have partnered with the Giving Block so that you can now donate Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), ChainLink (LINK), Litecoin (LTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Polygon (MATIC) and more.

Your support is now needed more than ever, as the Covid-19 pandemic adversely affects the most vulnerable families and communities we work in.

What are the advantages of donating cryptocurrency?

Crypto donors can remain anonymous. If you would like to receive updates on the impact of your support by email, simply tick the box which is 100% optional.

It’s easy! Through our crypto platform, The Giving Block, you simply select the crypto you’d like to give, and the amount, and you will receive an instant tax receipt via email.

It’s tax-efficient – 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. This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support Habitat for Humanity Australia. Consult with your financial planner to determine your tax benefits.
