Donate crypto to help end prostate cancer! When you give cryptocurrency, your generosity means support for patients and their families — and reduces your capital gains taxes in the process.
For more than 25 years, ZERO has lead the charge for cancer research funding, helped millions of men and families with help understanding their disease, risks, and treatment options, and given direct assistance to prostate cancer patients and caregivers, supporting them throughout their prostate cancer journeys.
Transferring your coins is quick, easy, and one of the most tax-efficient ways of giving to charity. The widget on this page will tell you ZERO’s wallet address for the specific coin you’d like to give, and lets you provide your contact information so that we can give you a tax receipt for the fair-market value of your donation.
It’s one of the most tax efficient ways of giving to charity; the IRS views giving crypto to a 501(c)(3) as a property donation, so you can both claim the gift as a tax deduction, and avoid capital gains taxes on your coins. Talk to your tax advisor, you might be able to save 30% versus converting your coins to fiat.

No. Our software immediately converts the coins to fiat so there’s no question about how much you’ve given. For the purposes of taxes, the IRS views the exchange as a property donation, which does not trigger capital gains on your gift. Talk to your financial advisor, as this can have a substantial tax implications in your favor!
Unfortunately, at this time ZERO doesn’t have a fully automated solution for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), but there are workarounds.
Typically, those who want to use NFTs for the sake of charity will just sell their NFT artwork on a site like OpenSea, then transfer the proceeds directly to ZERO. Since the IRS views crypto donations as a property exchange, the tax implications are the same.
If you instead want to have the person who purchases the NFT get a tax benefit, it’s possible (but a bit more complicated). have them donate directly to ZERO, then verify the transaction on the publicly viewable blockchain, and then transfer your NFT directly using a wallet such as Metamask.
