United Way of the Lowcountry now accepts cryptocurrency

United Way of the Lowcountry (UWLC) is now accepting gifts of cryptocurrency, entering a sector of philanthropy that is swiftly gaining traction as the crypto market grows.

Through the online platform The Giving Block, United Way can now accept more than 75 forms of virtual currency, including many of the current most popular coins such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin and more.

“We are thrilled to expand our fundraising efforts to include cryptocurrency,” UWLC President and CEO Dale Douthat said in a release. “This move allows us to engage with donors who want to make a difference in their community but operate in a more digital capacity than previous generations of supporters.”

The Giving Block makes the experience simple, quick and efficient while providing all of the safety protocols for giving a gift online. Once a donation is made, the cryptocurrency is immediately exchanged for cash to eliminate risk due to volatility in the crypto market.

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning donors do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it from their taxes. This makes cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support United Way. Please consult with your tax, legal and CPA advisors before engaging in any transaction. UWLC does not provide tax, legal or accounting advice. For more information on making a gift of cryptocurrency to UWLC, visit www.uwlowcountry.org/crypto.
