Susan G. Komen for the Cure (commonly known as Komen) is an American breast cancer foundation that allows individuals to give digital assets instead of fiat cash. The Giving Block, a contribution platform, is a partner in the program.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure revealed the latest additions on Twitter. This new sort of gift, according to the group, will enable more ways to fight breast cancer and save lives.

The Giving Block, a firm’s subsidiary, disclosed that more than 50 coins are accepted. Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Shiba Inu are some of the most prominent examples (SHIB).

People may also give using some of the most popular Metaverse coins, such as The Sandbox (SAND) and Decentraland (DCN) (MANA).

As per current US legislation, giving away digital assets is tax-effective and might “save you money,” as per The Giving Block.

“The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes, which means it is typically the most tax-efficient way to support your favorite cause,” the firm noted.

Another charity, the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation, just declared that it would take cryptocurrency contributions. The non-profit organization dedicated to improving children’s healthcare has accepted Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), and other cryptocurrencies.

Fidelity Charitable, the biggest grantmaker in the United States, said in the previous month that it had taken more than $270 million in digital assets since the start of 2021. The previous high was $69 million in cryptocurrency received by the organization in 2017.
