Donate cryptocurrency to CPJ

By defending journalists, CPJ protects your right to be informed.

Your tax-deductible gift of crypto makes a difference to us and to the journalists who face reprisal in their pursuit of the truth. Thank you for believing in our mission and for joining our fight for a #freepress.

If you have any questions about our work or your giving, you may contact the Development Department by email at development@cpj.org or by calling 212-300-9025.


The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)3 charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. You will receive a donation receipt for the full value of the crypto at the time you donate for tax purposes.

We accept the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Zcash (ZEC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Chainlink (LINK), 0x (ZRX), Storj (STORJ), Dai (DAI), Amp (AMP), The Graph (GRT), UMA (UMA), 1inch (1INCH), Shibu Inu Coin (SHIB), and many more.

If you are interested in making a gift of cryptocurrency but would like to know more about CPJ, please contact our team at development@cpj.org
