Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I donate to Rising Star Outreach?

When you donate to Rising Star Outreach, you’re not just joining our mission to eradicate leprosy. You’re joining humanity’s battle against stigma and prejudice.

Rising Star Outreach has earned a Platinum Transparency Seal from Guidestar (you can view our profile here) and a 100/100 Give with Confidence Rating on Charity Navigator (you can learn more about how we earned that rating here).

What are the tax benefits of donating cryptocurrency?

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event. Donors 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 their taxes. This often makes Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause.

Do you accept NFTs?

We are excited to say we do!

An NFT is a type of data, often consisting of art or music, stored on a blockchain (the same technology behind cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.). This data is in the form of a token that can be bought and resold. When sold, a royalty can be paid to the original artist (or beneficiary such as a nonprofit/charity) in a cryptocurrency such as ETH.
