The Salvation Army is now accepting cryptocurrency donations, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.

All transactions come with a receipt and possible tax benefits.

“We are excited to enter a new frontier in digital giving by accepting cryptocurrency this Christmas,” said Western Territorial Commander Commissioner Douglas Riley. “After this challenging year, with more in need than ever, it’s great to be able to offer an easy way for those in the crypto community to join us in helping to rebuild lives.”

The Salvation Army joins a small group of nonprofits that accepts this form of donation.
