The Mona Foundation, an educational non-profit, accepts cryptocurrencies

A comedy star Rainn Wilson is asking crypto enthusiasts to donate their “worthless” Bitcoin to a charity.

“Mona Foundation believes that every child deserves the gift of education. Cryptocurrency donations help us give that gift,” reads Mona Foundation’s website.

Last month, the organization opened up its donation channels to accept a line-up of cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin, and the USDC stablecoin through The Giving Block.

The Mona Foundation, a non-profit that supports worldwide initiatives in education and equality in communities – particularly women and girls – in the poorest areas of the globe. In 2018, they supported the education and empowerment of more than 411,000 students in 16 projects across 10 countries.

Actor Rainn Wilson, best known for his portrayal of Dwight Schrute in the US version of The Office, released a video message in which he urges crypto hodlers to give their “worthless cryptocurrency” to the mentioned non-profit.

In his words, bitcoin holders, whom he calls “Bitcoin owners, cryptocurrency fanatics, and alternative financing fans,” had better “give [their] bananas to the Mona Foundation.”

Worth mentioning, in 2017, the Mona Foundation was in the list of charities to whom the Pineapple Fund donated $55 million worth of Bitcoin, including $1 million to the non-profit. And it was Rainn Wilson who in 2017 encouraged the Foundation to apply for a Bitcoin Grant through the Pineapple Fund. He’s been collaborating with the non-profit for twelve years.

So, consider donating to the Mona Foundation, 100% of your donation will directly educate children since, as a 501 (c) (3) organization, Mona Foundation is tax-exempt (EIN: 91-1968512) and receives the entire amount of cryptocurrency.

Crypto donation will be valued at the time of donation at its tax deductible FMV – donors will receive a larger tax benefit because the entire FMV of the donation can be deducted.
