When donating cryptocurrency, you may be able to avoid capital gains tax, and you may be eligible for a tax deduction. This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-savvy ways to support a heart-healthy future.

As we prepare to enter our Second Century of impact, we recognize the powerful impact that the crypto community can have in creating change for a better future.

Together with the crypto community, our goal is to raise $1,000,000 to fund our mission of lifesaving research, improving patient care, advocating for healthier communities, and working for equitable health for all.

Donor Spotlight: Jeffrey W. Marquis, Sr.

When cryptocurrency began its meteoric rise to popularity in the early 2010’s, as a financial planner, Jeffrey W. Marquis, Sr. naturally took notice. “It was a new space in terms of investments and a growing industry, and I felt that same pull and interest that a lot of people felt,” he said. When he found out that the American Heart Association was beginning to accept donations via cryptocurrency, he signed up immediately. “I’m always looking for ways to engage with the AHA, I’m a stroke survivor and giving has always been part of my DNA – any way I can continue to help and educate people and further the mission, I’m all for it,” he said.

The American Heart Association now accepts more than 100 leading cryptocurrencies and Jeffrey says it couldn’t have been easier to complete the transfer. “It was such a streamlined process powered by Giving Block, and it’s a little sexier than writing a check. I worked with my local AHA Charitable Estate Planning Advisor, John Cullum, I got sent a link, went on, and transferred directly from my personal wallet to that address and was even able to direct the funds to the specific CycleNation event where I wanted them to go. You have so many options on how to help, and you can tie it directly to something that you care about. Your local AHA Advisor can help walk you through the process, it’s not intimidating. Just a few steps for a great cause!”
