Donate Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Other Cryptocurrencies to Help Animals

Your gift of cryptocurrency today will help PETA unlock even more groundbreaking advances for animals. Your generous support will provide us with the resources that we need in order to rescue more animals from lives of abuse and neglect, conduct more powerful undercover investigations that open the eyes of millions, and do everything that we can to challenge speciesism at every turn. Watch this compelling video for a sample of our accomplishments, made possible thanks to your help.

Join Our Crypto Imagination Circle

Imagine a kinder world, one in which every sentient being is treated with the respect and compassion that they deserve. The cryptocurrency community is known for its creativity and innovation, which is why we’ve launched our Crypto Imagination Circle to help make that world a reality.

When you make an annual crypto donation valued at US $1,000 or more, you’ll become part of this exclusive group of supporters, which is imagining and creating a world without speciesism. As a member, you’ll receive quarterly updates on the latest technology, research, and innovations in the animal rights movement.

A Tax-Smart Way to Give

Giving Bitcoin, Ether, or other cryptocurrencies can offer you the following benefits:

  • Your gift of cryptocurrency is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by U.S. law, meaning that you may qualify for an income tax deduction for the fully appraised value of the crypto.
  • When you donate appreciated cryptocurrency directly to PETA, capital gains aren’t recognized from the donation—making this a tax-savvy way to give if your crypto has increased in value.

You should always consult with your financial adviser before initiating any charitable contribution. Please be sure to provide your contact information when donating so that we can generate your receipt for tax purposes.
