Give crypto to our Children's Emergency Fund and you can protect children in crisis around the world

The outlook in 2022 is stark. Children are on the frontline of an unprecedented global humanitarian crisis. Their right to survival, protection and education is under immediate threat. And there´s no end in sight.

We work around the clock to do whatever it takes to save children but we can't do it without you. Your donation to our Children’s Emergency Fund  allows us to respond wherever the need is greatest, helping us reach children living in crisis quickly with the essentials they need to survive. 

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

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.
