Make a Bitcoin Donation

For individuals in closed societies, or for anyone facing hyperinflation, capital controls, sanctions, or financial surveillance, Bitcoin can be a tool of freedom. Your donation of BTC will help HRF research and advocate for people's rights and liberties a cross the world. If you'd like, you can earmark your donation specifically to support our research and advocacy in the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency space through projects like the Open Money Initiative and our Privacy Technology Fellowship.

To learn more about our role in this space, you can listen to us talk about this work on top podcasts like What Bitcoin Did and Off The Chain, read our article on the topic in Time Magazine, and see our Chief Strategy Officer's response to Bitcoin critics on Medium.

HRF first began accepting BTC donations in 2013. For donors in the United States, the IRS has classified Bitcoin as property for tax purposes. This means that when you donate Bitcoin to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit like HRF, you don't have to pay capital gains tax and the full amount is tax deductible for you. If you'd like to receive a tax receipt for your donation, please contact
