Cryptocurrency

The ESU Foundation secures philanthrophic support to advance the Univeersity's mission to enhance every student's educational experience.  With tuition and state funding only covering a portion of an ESU education, we rely on private support to help fund programs that benefit the entire university community.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes whcih means it is typically the most tax-efficient way to support ESU. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, which means, donors do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can typically deduct the fair market value of the donation on their taxes.  Please contact a crypto-savvy tax professional or financial advisor for more information.

All cryptocurrency donations are immediately converted to cash, which means, all cryptocurrency donations are nonrefundable.  No goods, services or airdrops will be offered in exchange for cryptocurrency donations.  The East Stroudsburg University Foundation wants to ensure our donors that every token that is donated is put to work as soon as possible.  Donations are immediately converted into fiat, we do not offer refunds on any donations that are made in cryptocurrency.  Please only send currencies listed on the widget.  Do not send other cryptocurrencies (including layer 2, wrapped tokens, NFT's or other ERC-20 tokens not listed) as these are unsupported and may result in loss of donation.  For more information, click here.
