Cryptocurrency

Your donation empowers the world’s most effective rainforest defenders.

In 2014, we began exploring blockchain technology because we knew it held great potential to advance our mission. Today, more than ever, we are convinced that crypto can become a powerful and effective tool for rainforest protection.

Why cryptocurrency makes a great donation: In the United States, and many other jurisdictions, cryptocurrencies are classified as property for tax purposes (like stocks). This means that when you donate appreciated crypto directly to a nonprofit, you don’t owe capital gains tax on those earnings, and neither does the nonprofit, which means you can donate more, and pay less in taxes. It’s that simple.

We can accept the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Zcash (ZEC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Dai (DAI), Amp (AMP), The Graph (GRT), Storj (STORJ), UMA (UMA),  Chainlink (LINK), 0x (ZRX), and 1inch (1INCH).

To make a donation of ETHER (ETH) directly to our ETH wallet, use the following wallet address: 0x54334Ebc8c9ef04bc28D614Caa557143ED8AfC87

To donate in USD Coin (USDC), our wallet address is: 0x6a34E84fc47c7360C844a85839c4782fE8524858


Thank you for donating crypto!
