Donate Cryptocurrency to Support Brain Research

Brain diseases and disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, migraine, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury, and others impact millions of people every day, and are the leading cause of disability and the second leading cause of death worldwide.

That’s why the American Brain Foundation funds research across the full spectrum of brain diseases and disorders. Because all brain diseases are interrelated, discovering a cure for one disease will lead to cures for many others.

Your gift of cryptocurrency funds critical research to improve treatments and find cures for a range of devastating brain diseases, so that one day we can all enjoy life without brain disease. The American Brain Foundation can now accept gifts in the following cryptocurrencies:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Ether (ETH)
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Zcash (ZEC)
  • Gemini Dollar (GUSD)
  • Basic Attention Token (BAT)
  • Chainlink (LINK)
  • 0x (ZRX)
  • Storj (STORJ)
  • Dai (DAI)
  • Amp (AMP)
  • The Graph (GRT)
  • UMA (UMA)
  • 1inch (1INCH)

Cryptocurrency gifts are considered non-taxable events—like donating stocks—meaning you do not have to pay capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct the donation on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support the American Brain Foundation’s vision of life without brain disease.
