Charities Supported by Torus

Torus is supporting charities that are making a huge difference with their altruistic efforts. Learn more about the charities supported for #BitcoinTuesday.

The Giving Block

The cryptocurrency bull market of 2017 initiated a new pool of donors with the IRS treating cryptocurrency as property. Cryptocurrency investors have a tax incentive to donate cryptocurrencies directly to nonprofits to gain similar tax write-offs as a stock donation. The Giving Block was founded in 2018 to equip nonprofits with the tools needed to accept cryptocurrency donations to allow them to tap onto the pool of cryptocurrency donors.

Now, donors have over 100 non-profits to choose from, and The Giving Block has made it much easier for non-profits to begin accepting cryptocurrency donations.

Supported by organizations and individuals committed to the advancement of women in technology, the nonprofit training program has taught 150 young women how to code, build mobile apps and games.
