CanadaHelps converts the cryptocurrency donation to Canadian Dollars and disburses the donation to GSA. Similar to non-crypto donations, you’ll receive a charitable tax receipt.
CanadaHelps works with CarbonX Canada, in collaboration with its partner CCRI (Crypto Carbon Rating Institute), to estimate and purchase the required carbon credits to offset the emissions linked to cryptocurrency donations. So you can feel good about making a carbon-neutral gift!
