Donate using Crypto
- Why donate cryptocurrency to AJP?
- This is an existential moment for local news. Thousands of newspapers across the country have shuttered, and the increasingly understaffed newsrooms that remain have neither the reporting power nor the funding necessary to produce consistent original reporting. Millions of residents in cities and rural areas lack quality sources of trusted news about what’s happening around them. Your crypto donation can help the American Journalism Project work to ensure that every community in our country has local journalism that represents, informs and engages the diverse public it serves.
- Our vision is that by 2040, we will have built an independent, resilient, and ubiquitous civic press that will represent, inform and engage every member of the diverse public it serves. You can help us achieve this with your generous gift of cryptocurrency today.
- Are crypto donations tax-deductible?
- The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)3 charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.

- What is The Giving Block?
- The American Journalism Project uses The Giving Block platform in order to accept cryptocurrency donations. The Giving Block was founded in 2018 after seeing hundreds of millions of dollars in crypto being donated to the few nonprofits that were equipped to accept those donations. Their mission is to ensure that nonprofits from all sectors are equipped to accept cryptocurrencies and are connected with those in the crypto community who wish to donate. They achieve this with their founders’ wealth of experience in cryptocurrency as well as nonprofit fundraising and operations.
