Turkiye and Syria earthquake

EMERGENCY RESPONSE! If you would like to support our Children’s Emergency Fund, which includes our Türkiye/Syria earthquake response, please write "Türkiye/Syria Earthquake - Children's Emergency Fund" in the 'donation notes' field.

Today, children globally face unprecedented humanitarian crises. These are being exacerbated by worsening conflicts, climate disasters and the far-reaching impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. These crises are all sides of the same coin, they are symptoms of a system that is broken for children.

For over 100 years Save the Children’s mission has been based on the simple principle that all children have the right to be healthy, educated and protected.

We accept anonymous donations: please include your email address to get a donation receipt*. If you have any questions or are interested in donating other types of cryptocurrency, please email us at [email protected].

Is my cryptocurrency charitable donation tax deductible?

Yes, your cryptocurrency donation is tax deductible in the United States!* Save the Children offers supporters who want to donate cryptocurrency to charity the ability to give in a tax-efficient way.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency donations as property, meaning they are not subject to capital gains tax and are tax-deductible. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law in the United States. For example, for donors in the United States, the IRS has classified bitcoin as property for tax purposes.

If you provide your email address, you will receive a donation receipt on behalf of Save the Children US. Save the Children US has full discretion and oversight over these cryptocurrency donations.

*Please consult your tax advisor. You can donate anonymously but you will not receive a tax receipt unless you provide at least your email address.
