Donor Advised Funds

What is a donor advised fund?

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a centralized giving program that simplifies your donation to the Rainforest Foundation or other organizations, while giving you the most favorable and flexible tax benefits.

 And Build a High-Tech Forest Shield

In May 2014, we at the Rainforest Foundation began developing our own cryptocurrency, BitSeeds. A PoW/PoS hybrid crypto, Bitseeds was at one point listed on Bittrex. Though our crypto was ultimately unsuccessful, we’ve continued to constantly explore ways to leverage crypto and blockchain to elevate our impact. Other past efforts include an app to use Simple Token for direct payments, considerations around becoming an EOS block producer, and fundraising via CryptoCare. Today, we are developing a blockchain transparency pilot with Regen Network, allowing donors to track our work in the Amazon Rainforest and reward local communities who are protecting their forests with crypto. We have long been a part of the crypto team but now we need you on our team.

We have long-known that the crypto community has the power to change the world. In response to the intensified deforestation and fires in the Amazon, we have launched a campaign to engage the crypto community in raising funds we will use to protect the Amazon. We hope you will help us do just that by donating crypto and joining our #CryptoFireFighter coalition.

Charitable Bequests

 

Many Native American communities are committed to the idea of respecting seven generations—ensuring people make decisions taking into account the seven generations closest them. We all want to make sure know we are passing on a healthy and thriving planet to our family and friends. One way you can ensure your passion and commitment to protecting our planet from climate change, ensuring the biodiversity of the rainforest and the rights of the indigenous peoples is to leave a bequest to Rainforest Foundation US in your will.

 

A Simple Process

One of the easiest ways to make a gift from your estate is by adding Rainforest Foundation US as a beneficiary of your estate. This gift is called a charitable bequest and simply involves adding a few sentences to your will. Here is an example of what you could include:
