Why Donate Cryptocurrency to the CMTA?

The CMTA received a perfect score of 100, earning a four-star rating from independent nonprofit evaluator Charity Navigator. The CMTA is only one of 15 health-related charities to earn a perfect score from Charity Navigator, and the only CMT-related organization to earn four stars. Charity Navigator evaluates nonprofit organizations’ financial health, including measures of stability, efficiency, and sustainability. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning 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 the CMTA.
