Donate Crypto

Cryptocurrency has quickly risen in popularity, with over 300 million users worldwide and an estimated 2 trillion dollars in value now circulating as a digital currency. With social and economic confidence in cryptocurrency increasing alongside the needs of our growing organization, we decided it was time to harness the latest technology to bring our nonprofit vision to life.
We accept over 130 cryptocurrencies, and crypto donations will be immediately converted to cash, removing any risks of crypto market volatility from negatively impacting your generosity. This means you’ll have more options for how to give safely and securely, and we’ll be able to fulfill our promise to promote play in neighborhoods lacking safe places to play more than ever before! Plus, every crypto donation through Pledge will support a verified carbon offset project.

Donor-Advised Fund: Make a Positive and Immediate Impact

A donor-advised fund is a charitable giving vehicle administered by another entity and created for the purpose of managing charitable donations on behalf of an organization, family, or individual.
A donor-advised fund requires the donor to set aside a certain sum of money that may be invested in stocks, and later, if the stocks appreciate in value, they can donate those stocks without worrying about capital gains taxes.
The good thing about donor-advised funds is that, when they increase in value, the donor gets to claim a tax deduction that is larger than their cost basis.
THE BAD THING about donor-advised funds, is that when the portfolio is down, the donor will claim a smaller deduction than their cost basis. AND DONOR-ADVISED FUNDS CHARGE FEES TO DONORS! You pay for someone else to control your portfolio, and you lose control of donating only the winning stocks.
That’s why Recess Cleveland uses Stock Donor instead of donor-advised funds. With Stock Donor, you don’t need to donate until you have a gain! Your portfolio remains solely under your control! Therefore you can always donate and receive a deduction that is larger than your cost basis! Also, donors NEVER have to pay Stock Donator a fee for using our service. 100% of the FMV of the tax donation will belong to the Donors!
Open a Stock Donator account today and start donating stocks to Recess Cleveland in a fast, easy and secure way.
