Frequently Asked Questions
Cryptocurrency, also known as Virtual Currency or “Crypto,” is a digital asset designed to function as a replacement for fiat (US Dollars, for example) whereby transactions between two parties are verified through a public, distributed ledger, also known as a blockchain. Most people think of Bitcoin when they hear the word “Crypto.” While Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency introduced, there are thousands of unique cryptocurrencies in circulation, each with its own specific properties and values.
The Engiven platform is a third-party, vendor-provided donation software that enables nonprofits to safely and securely receive cryptocurrency donations and then convert those donations into usable fiat currency, such as US dollars.

Yes. It is lawful for a nonprofit to accept a donation in the form of a cryptocurrency. On March 2014, the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) ruled that Bitcoin is treated as property for tax purposes (IRS Notice 2014-21).
Engiven will facilitate an immediate sale of the donated cryptocurrency and deposit the US dollar proceeds into CHF’s bank account. CHF does not directly trade in cryptocurrency and will not hold the donated cryptocurrency.
Donors who provide an email address will receive an email receipt (from the Engiven platform), which will detail the type and number of “coins” donated, the date and time of the donation, the CHF fund given to, and other details.
A formal year-end receipt will be mailed by the end of January to donors who provide their name and address.
A year-end tax receipt cannot be made available to donors who choose to give anonymously because receipts must be made out to a named individual or company in order to meet IRS requirements.
For US tax purposes, transactions using virtual currency must be reported by the taxpayer, in US dollars, at the fair market value on the date of the donation. If a virtual currency is listed on an exchange and the exchange rate is established by market supply and demand, the fair market value of the virtual currency is determined by converting the virtual currency into US dollars at the exchange rate in a reasonable manner that is consistently applied.
Our third-party platform, Engiven, provides the highest level of confidence and security by utilizing blockchain security. Relying on networks of thousands of computers to verify transactions, Engiven drastically minimizes the risk of cyber-attacks or fraud.
