Will I receive a receipt with my donation?

Yes, you will receive a tax receipt from the Independence Historical Trust by mail. You must provide us with your complete name and address information to receive a receipt. Please note that the Trust does not currently accept anonymous cryptocurrency donations.

Is my cryptocurrency donation tax deductible?

The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)(3) charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. 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. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information as there maybe forms you are required to complete with your taxes.


Can I specify which projects I want to support with my donation?

To give to a specific project or program, please reach out to us at or 215-861-4971 to let us know what the donation is meant to support. Gifts that are given without a prior call or email will be designated to the Greatest Need.


I see that the Trust liquidates cryptocurrency right away. What if I want them to hold it for a certain period?

It is the policy of the Trust to liquidate cryptocurrency donations as soon as practicable as donations will go toward projects and programs currently happening in the Park and historical district.  If you believe that there is a good reason for the Trust to hold on to the donation for a certain time period, please reach out the Trust at or 215-861-4971 to discuss the situation. The Trust’s Executive Committee will need to review the situation before accepting the donation.
