Donate Crypto

Magnify Your Positive Impact While Saving on US Taxes!

Cryptocurrency is classified as property in the USA, which means that donors do not have to pay capital gains tax on their donations!

This equates to paying less taxes on the appreciation of crypto assets and more money going to TIST.

The difference can be as much as 20% more going to support TIST Farmers than if you sold crypto first and then donated the USD.

You can also add to this reduction in capital gains a deduction of the fair market value of your donation as long as the crypto has been held for more than one year.

Crypto Donations Benefit TIST Farmers, too!

Donating crypto to TIST is a win-win for both the donor and for TIST Farmers.

As a donor, you legally avoid capital gains tax on your crypto appreciation and get a larger deduction.

As the receiver, TIST gets a larger donation through our registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, The Institute for Environmental Innovation (I4EI).

By donating crypto today, you save on taxes and increase your positive impact!

A Note on TIST and Decentralization

Since you are here on this page, it's quite possible you are a fan of decentralization.

So are we! We have the track record to prove it, too, as we've had a focus on decentralization since before the first bitcoin was ever mined.

TIST has no central office because maintaining offices is expensive and we prefer to put all the resources we have into education and serving farmers in planting trees rather than paying rent.

The TIST team is also decentralized, with in-country TIST Leadership working from their homes and TIST Farmers working at their farms.

Meetings of Small Groups and Clusters (groups of Small Groups located within walking distance of a central location) take place in locations convenient for farmers to meet without the need for transportation.

Sometimes these meetings take place in churches or local government buildings... and sometimes it's just a space in nature.

Arranging gatherings like this saves TIST a lot of money and we like it that way because supporting farmers is our number one goal.

Rather than maintaining an office, printing logo-emblazoned t-shirts, organizing fancy photo shoots, flying first class, cruising around in Land Rovers (TIST also owns zero vehicles) and hanging poolside in fancy hotels, all levels of TIST Program are committed to keeping costs as low as possible.

In fact, one of the TIST Values is: "We create big results with low budgets."

And we mean it!

This is why donating cryptos to TIST really makes sense all around for fans of decentralization and tax efficiency, not to mention the advantage of being able to give more and for farmers to receive more. Truly a win-win!

Please contact us to begin the tax-friendly journey of donating cryptocurrencies to support TIST Farmers growing trees and growing leaders.

The process is very quick and simple - let us know which crypto(s) you want to donate, and we will provide you with our wallet address(es) and a legal receipt for tax purposes.
