The Catholic University of America is the national Catholic university of the United States. We are the only higher education institution founded by the U.S. bishops. Established in 1887 as a papally chartered graduate and research center, the University began offering undergraduate education in 1904. For more than 130 years, we have advanced the dialogue between reason and faith, in service to the Church, the nation, and the world.

Now, you may support the mission of Catholic University with a gift of cryptocurrency.

Supporting The Fund for Catholic University

Unless arranged in advance, your gift of cryptocurrency supports The Fund for Catholic University, one of the most powerful ways you can make an impact on the University. Your contribution ensures that a Catholic University education remains affordable to each student who seeks one and helps to relieve the operational budget, providing necessary funds to the areas with the most pressing needs.

Tax benefits of donating cryptocurrency

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it from your taxes. This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support Catholic University.
