Plant Trees and Change Lives with Crypto
Your crypto gift has the power to restore landscapes, foster biodiversity, combat climate change, and grow new opportunities for farming families for years to come.
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. This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause. You can find all of our accepted cryptocurrencies in our FAQ below.
When you donate crypto to Trees for the Future, we immediately convert your donation to fiat, which means all donations are non-refundable. Please only send currencies listed on the widget. Do not send unsupported currencies (including unsupported ERC-20s, ERC-721s and BEP20s) as they will be lost.
Interested in supporting TREES through NFTs?

Once you reach the third page, the widget will generate a dynamic wallet address you can use to complete your donation.
When using The Giving Block widget you’ll notice that a new wallet address is created every time. This is because The Giving Block uses dynamic wallet addresses.This is done to protect your privacy and ours. Doing so helps prevents third parties from viewing all of your transaction history simply by copying and pasting the wallet address or TXID into a block explorer.All addresses that are generated are associated with your donor information AND ours forever. This means that you can reuse the address as often as you’d like or you can generate a new one each time. It’s up to you. In some cases, users want to re-use an address because they’ve added it as a payout address in an app or smart contract.Note that for ETH, after the first donation is sent, the address is converted to a smart contract.
In order to receive a receipt with your donation, you must enter your email when prompted to in our widget above. You will automatically receive a receipt from firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as the transaction is confirmed on the blockchain. This changes depending on the blockchain – you can refer to this guide for estimates and more information. Please note that you will receive a receipt every time you donate with our wallet address to the receipt you enter when generating the address.
