iMentor Now Accepting Cryptocurrency Donations

Want to make a donation to iMentor via Bitcoin? Now you can!

iMentor is pleased to announce that we now accept more than 40 different cryptocurrencies as charitable donations.

We are thrilled to be joining the growing movement of cryptophilanthropy, and look forward to expanding our involvement with the international community of over 220 million cryptocurrency users who are transforming the culture of philanthropy and innovation.

With the rising popularity of cryptocurrencies, we welcome crypto holders in the iMentor community who want to support our work and mission to empower our students to achieve their college and career aspirations.

To kick things off, this year we’ll be participating in #CryptoGivingTuesday and #BagSeason. #CryptoGivingTuesday is the biggest occasion for crypto fundraising and giving that strengthens the culture of charitable giving in the crypto community. It’s held on the same day as #GivingTuesday, November 30, and kicks off #BagSeason, an annual fundraising season that runs throughout the month of December and inspires crypto holders to donate to charitable causes before the end of the year. 

iMentor is also honored to be partnered with schools specializing in technology and sciences that enable our students—especially those from historically marginalized backgrounds—to become leaders in their chosen fields and champions of forward-thinking development and progress. Just like the crypto holders who are breaking down financial barriers and building innovative ways for the future, we share that passion and excitement for our students.

Plus, great news for U.S. donors: By supporting us through cryptocurrency donations, you can reduce your tax burden and incur lower transaction fees than those associated with traditional payment methods. This means you are able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return.
