Donate with Crypto

Egale officially accepts cryptocurrency donations – and we’ve partnered with a secure, third-party platform to make it as easy as possible for you. In accordance with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) we will issue a tax receipt for donations of $20 CAD and over. 

Through The Giving Block, you can make a cryptocurrency donation which will then be automatically converted to fiat before being disbursed to Egale. Your tax receipt will be issued for the fair market value of the donated cryptocurrency at the date/time of transfer. 

In order to issue a tax receipt, we require your full name, mailing address, and email address. Please do not hesitate to reach out to with any questions or to discuss your donation.  

*Please only send the exact cryptocurrency listed on the blockchain mentioned on the widget. Do not send any other cryptocurrencies (including layer 2, wrapped tokens, NFTs or other ERC-20 tokens not listed) as these are unsupported and may result in loss of donation. For more info, click here
