Crypto/Stock Donations

Boy Scouts of America Del-Mar-Va Council Mission Statement 

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral decisions over their lifetimes by instilling in them values based on the Scout Oath and Law.

Why donate cryptocurrency and/or stocks to the Boy Scouts of America Del-Mar-Va Council? 

By Contributing to Scouting you will have a profound impact on the future of America. More youth will experience the program that will instill values and character in their moral fiber. Your gift will truly have a direct impact on our world.

Save on your taxes by donating cryptocurrency or stocks

Donating cryptocurrency and/or stocks directly to a 501(c)3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money! The IRS classifies cryptocurrency and stocks as property for tax purposes which means it is typically THE MOST tax efficient way to support Scouting. When donating cryptocurrency and/or stock you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the crypto and/or stock and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold it and then made a donation. That means you are able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return!  

Through our cryptocurrency and stock donation partnership with The Giving Block we are able to automatically accept over 100 different cryptocurrencies and can make individual arrangements to accept almost ANY crypto, and all stocks. Just send an email  if you need more details. 

What is #CryptoGivingTuesday?

#CryptoGivingTuesday is the unofficial beginning of #BagSeason, the year-end/holiday giving season for the crypto community. It starts on the first Tuesday after the US Thanksgiving holiday.

What is #NFTuesday?

#NFTuesday is The Giving Block's newly minted, one day celebration of NFT philanthropy. For much of human history art and social progress have gone hand in hand. The blockchain era is no exception; over the past year, the NFT community has donated millions of dollars in crypto to charitable organizations like the Boy Scouts. The day brings together NFT marketplaces, artists, galleries, projects and studios that are helping bring visibility to this incredible year of impact and raise more money for important causes. 

What is an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) and does Del-Mar-Va Council accept NFT donations? 

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. NFT is a smart contract typically built on the Ethereum blockchain, a decentralized ledger where public transactions are stored. An NFT is like a digital certificate of authenticity that serves as proof of ownership. Supporters can donate the proceeds from the sale of an NFT to Del-Mar-Va Council through our cryptocurrency donation page. If you are an artist or other NFT owner who would like to donate proceeds of an NFT sale to Del-Mar-Va Council please reach out to us by email

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency and stock donations as property, meaning they are not subject to capital gains tax and are tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.
