Donate Cryptocurrency to Muscular Dystrophy Association!

Transform the lives of kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases, now with a tax-deductible gift in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or one of many other leading cryptocurrencies.

Your support is a critical part of MDA’s mission to help kids and adults across America affected by more than 40 different types of neuromuscular diseases. As the largest source of funding for neuromuscular disease research outside of the federal government, donations to MDA are directly linked to approved, life-changing therapies. Your cryptocurrency gift today will help us fund more research, deliver more treatments, and provide the best care and support to more families.

Save on taxes when you donate crypto

Donating your crypto directly to a 501(c)(3) like MDA is one of the most tax-efficient ways to support MDA’s mission. Because the IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes, your gift today is a non-taxable event—meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes.
