Stock and Securities

The Sentencing Project gratefully accepts gifts in the form of stocks/appreciated securities. When you transfer ownership of appreciated securities to The Sentencing Project, you may receive a charitable income tax deduction for their fair market value on the date the gift is made, up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income, and incur no capital gains tax subject to IRS deduction limits.

The Sentencing Project has partnered with to enable our supporters to make stock donations in 10 minutes or less. Our Donate Stock page enables you to donate stock from your brokerage directly to our account through a secure portal, making the gifting process fast, safe and easy.


The Sentencing Project gratefully accepts gifts of cryptocurrency. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event. You do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated crypto that is donated and can typically deduct the fair market value of the donation on your taxes. This often makes Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support The Sentencing Project.

The Sentencing Project has partnered with The Giving Block to enable our supporters to make cryptocurrency donations. Click here to donate cryptocurrency in a matter of minutes!
