Why Give with Crypto

Approximately 97% of the fire department's budget is allocated to personnel expenses, leaving just 3% to cover the department’s other needs. The LAFD Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created by civic and corporate leaders in 2010  to supplement the fire department’s budget by providing first responders with essential equipment, new technology, and educational resources that would otherwise go unfunded.

Your gift will directly improve the lives of the over 3,500 firefighters serving the Los Angeles Fire Department. 

Tax Benefits

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event. Donors do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated crypto that is donated and can typically deduct the fair market value of the donation on their taxes. This often makes Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation. Talk to a crypto-savvy tax professional or connect with The Giving Block to get connected with one.
