Donate Crypto or NFT’s
Why donate cryptocurrency?
When the Soviet Union fell, no laws, systems or organisations were built to deal with animal welfare. There is no nation-wide ‘Humane Society’ in Russia. Everything has to be created from scratch. Forgotten Animals was founded in 2011 to fill the gap, as no one was doing effective organised animal welfare work, amongst widespread normalised unpunished cruelty and abuse.
So we had to start doing something ourselves.
We mostly rely on small donation from the public and occasional grants. Our founder Anna has been involved in crypto and thought the charity should evolve with the times and welcome the changes that our financial system so desperately needs. Please leave your email when donating – we want to thank you , not spam you. Please read further down a small note on donating NFT art!
Cryptocurrency has become more mainstream and after several requests from donors, we accept the following cryptocurrencies through the Giving Block widget: Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Zcash (ZEC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Chainlink (LINK).
Our BNB(BNB) wallet for donations – – bnb1y93ulgrsl8uyw9sg3vnd7ngmhps4zrhyej5rga
BNB (BSC/ via Smart chain) donations can be made to this wallet – 0xA5Db3C2f27dC362308AacF9d10400539FDe19631
As our work evolves (we are currently responding to the Coronavirus threat), we need more agile fundraising tactics to better plan and allocate funds.
What are the advantages of donating in cryptocurrency?
Anonymity – Building on the anonymity of cryptocurrency, donors who donate in crypto can choose to remain entirely anonymous to us.
Simplicity – crypto platform, The Giving Block, provides the tax receipts via email. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit org in United States. EIN/tax id: 84-454-4322
Tax-efficiency – 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.
