Donate Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrency

Giving Hope in a Digital Age

The digital currency revolution has created incredible new opportunities for individuals to effect generational change for families and communities that are dependent on small scale farming for their sustenance and livelihood. We are excited to partner with The Giving Block to make cryptocurrency donations possible at ECHO. 

As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are looking forward to the next 40 years and how we can best utilize all of the resources available to us to continue training and equipping small scale farmers around the world. For each farmer we train, that knowledge is passed on to an average of 40 additional individuals. Your gift of cryptocurrency is another avenue to reach more farmers and improve lives worldwide.


Why Donate Crypto

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return.
