Donate cryptocurrency

Whether you're a long-time investor in technology for nonprofits or new to supporting change-making in this way, your donation to NTEN is scaled for impact.

It’s easy to find information, tutorials, and even credentials for using software. But for years, NTEN’s research has found that people working on missions and movements say that what they need most is training and support using tech tools for their bigger goals. Unfortunately, that’s not widely available.

This is where NTEN comes in.

For over 20 years, NTEN’s transformative programs have enabled people working on missions and movements, regardless of their technical background or job title, to build skills in budgeting, planning, and designing strategies for using technology skillfully and equitably. Whether it’s collecting and managing data, online service delivery, creating technology policies, or evaluating impact, NTEN’s programs fill a knowledge gap in nonprofit technology.

Support NTEN by making a charitable gift in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or one of over 50 other cryptocurrencies.

  • $60,000 covers a six-month cohort of 20 people ramping up their technology leadership and planning skills.
  • $20,000 supports a Digital Inclusion Fellow for a year bringing digital equity to their communities.
  • And, every dollar you invest goes into our mission, ensuring our programs are as diverse and accessible as possible to meet the needs of changemakers all over the world.


About cryptocurrency

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event. 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 NTEN.

If you'd like to learn more about how donating crypto can lower your taxes, visit The Giving Block and review their helpful FAQ. Talk to a crypto-savvy tax professional or request The Giving Block connect you with one.

Donating crypto is safe, easy, and fast. Using the above widget, making a charitable gift is a quick three-step process:

  2. Type in your email and basic info (or choose to give anonymously)
  3. Make your gift!
Upon donating, you can elect to receive an automatically generated tax receipt sent to the email address you provide. This confirmation of your donation will help you close the loop when calculating your taxes.

#CryptoGivingTuesday is the biggest occasion of the year for crypto fundraising and giving.

It falls on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the U.S.

Today, #CryptoGivingTuesday drives millions of dollars worth of crypto donations toward nonprofits, charities, foundations, universities, faith-based organizations, and more.
