Giving to Sustainable Faith
GIVING TO SUSTAINABLE FAITH
Helping leaders & their faith communities go deep, grow wise, and love well.
“I can’t fully express how much Sustainable Faith has changed my life! The personal healing I’ve received from spiritual direction and the life-giving rhythms I’ve acquired have had a dramatic impact on my love for God, self and others. I want to encourage each of you who read this to prayerfully consider financially supporting Sustainable Faith. Their work is a blessing to many people needing to encounter the love of Jesus.” (Dan Wolf, Peoria Rescue Ministries)
We make it convenient to give $USD through Network for Good, our online giving platform.
Bitcoin (and Ether) Donations
Bitcoin is the world’s first internet-native, peer-to-peer, decentralized, fully transparent, censorship-resistant, non-fiat form of money. Internet-native means it’s money made for the internet and can be sent like email. Peer-to-peer means you send it to whomever you want – your best friend, a nonprofit, or a farmer in Kenya with a mobile phone. There is no “man in the middle” or counterparty that inspects and approves the transaction, taking a piece of the pie in the process.. By deentralized, it means that the open-source code that runs the network is maintained and secured by millions of computers worldwide. Take down a million computers and the network keeps running, as it has flawlessly for 13 years. It’s also transparent. Contrary to what sensationist, ill-informed journalists report, Bitcoin transactions are not anonymous. They’re pseudonymous, and every single transaction from the first to the last (millions) can be inspected by anyone. By censorship-resistant it means no government or person, good or evil, can stop a transaction or take down the network. It’s that strong. And by non-fiat, that means that unlike the $USD, the Yen, Yuan, Euro, Ruble, it’s not tied to amy government. (Consequently, it can’t be debased, inflated, or weaponized). It’s also the soundest form of money available and the best store of value. Bitcoin is slowly but surely eating up the gold market and has been the best performing of the last 13 years acroos all categories.
As with stock donations, when you transfer cryptocurrencies to a nonprofit, you pay no capital gains tax and can write off the full amount of the donation provided you’ve held it for at least a year. An additional benefit to the nonprofit is that over time cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have enormous growth potential, creating capacity for endowments, expansion of mission and much more. (Currently less than 3% of all nonprofits accept cryptocurrencies, but among them are United Way, the Red Cross, No Kid Hungry, Save the Children, Heifer International … and now Sustainable Faith!)
