WHY GIVE WITH CRYPTO
With approximately 97 percent of the LAPD’s budget spent on personnel, there is little left for major projects that will enhance the efficiency and modernization of the Department. From essential equipment and state-of-the-art technology to specialized training and innovative programs that would otherwise be unfunded, the support we provide directly improves public safety, impacts officer readiness, and enhances our quality of life.
Making a donation using cryptocurrency is considered a non-taxable event. Therefore, donors do not owe any capital gains tax on appreciated crypto they have donated. Additionally, donors are able to deduct the fair market value of the donation on their taxes. This enables Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations to be one of the most tax efficient ways to support the LAPF. Please consult with a cryptocurrency tax professional or contact The Giving Block for assistance. If you wish to learn more about how a cryptocurrency donation can lower your taxes, please visit the FAQ page at The Giving Block.
Kindly send the exact cryptocurrency listed on the blockchain mentioned in the widget. Please do not send any other cryptocurrencies (including layer 2, wrapped tokens, NFTs or other ERC-20 tokens not listed) as these are not supported and may result in loss of donation.
