What is happening in the region?

Thousands of people have died and 2.3 million people are under siege since the escalation of violence in Gaza.

Families are facing dire shortages of food, water and sanitations facilities. Many are trapped in their homes with nowhere safe to shelter while attacks continue.

Ordinary civilians have already borne the brunt of the violence and now those in Gaza face a double blow as they are cut off from vital humanitarian aid and all public services.

Oxfam has been able to provide small amounts of clean water, hygiene kits and cash assistance to families affected but the number of those in need is vast and continues to climb every day. We call for an immediate ceasefire to more life-saving humanitarian aid can safely reach families who are living this unfathomable reality.

Donate now and help provide clean water, sanitation facilities and cash assistance to help save lives.

What is The Giving Block?

Oxfam Australia uses The Giving Block platform to accept cryptocurrency donations.

The Giving Block was founded in 2018 after seeing hundreds of millions of dollars in crypto being donated to the few not for profits that were equipped to accept those donations.

Their mission is to ensure that not for profits from all sectors are equipped to accept cryptocurrencies and are connected with those in the crypto community who wish to donate. They achieve this with their founders’ wealth of experience in cryptocurrency as well as not for profit fundraising and operations.

How will I get my tax receipt? 

You will receive a tax receipt via email, provided you enter an email address. This will arrive as soon as your donation has received the minimum number of confirmations on the blockchain, so keep a lookout for it.

If you can’t see it, double check your spam or junk mail, and contact The Giving Block if you need it resent.

Please note if you do not provide an email address, you will not receive a tax receipt. 

Is my cryptocurrency charity donation tax deductible?

Your cryptocurrency donations can be tax deductible! Oxfam Australia is a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR), so will provide you with a tax receipt when you provide your email address.

While the Australian Taxation Office considers cryptocurrency as an asset, in the case of cryptocurrency donations to a DGR, there are some circumstances where your donation will not be subject to capital gains tax and will be tax deductible.

We recommend speaking to a tax specialist about your specific situation and the tax deductibility benefits that apply to you – based on where you live and pay tax.

Why did Oxfam Australia decide to accept cryptocurrencies?

Oxfam Australia has made the decision to accept cryptocurrency donations as we meet the different requests and expectations of our new and existing supporters. In essence, we’re making it easier for our supporters who want to donate the cryptocurrency they own.  

We’ve seen cryptocurrency donations grow in popularity around the world, so we’ve included it as an additional donation option for our supporters. 

Doesn’t cryptocurrency have a hugely negative impact on the environment?

While blockchain technology holds transformative potential, it also comes with challenges. The process of issuing many forms of cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin is currently energy intensive and has rightfully come under scrutiny for its environmental impact.

We’ve done a lot of investigation, and we kindly ask supporters to donate cryptocurrencies which use the less energy intensive validation protocol, Proof-of-Stake. Currencies that use Proof-of-Stake include Ethereum, Cardano, Polygon, Solana and many more. Compared to cryptocurrencies that use Proof-of-Work validation protocols, Proof-of-Stake currencies are 99.9% less energy intensive.

In addition, our partners in The Giving Block will be buying carbon credits to offset twice the amount of carbon emissions created through the donations created on their platform. This is done via their TGB Green initiative.

The energy impact of crypto currency is an evolving issue and one that will be important for us to monitor and adapt accordingly. Given that the actual transactions, including donations, are not particularly energy intensive, we have decided to make this option available for supporters who would like to donate their cryptocurrency.

Is Oxfam Australia getting involved in cryptocurrencies?

It is important to note that Oxfam Australia will not hold or deal in cryptocurrency. A crypto donation made by a supporter to our partner, The Giving Block will be immediately converted into US Dollars. Oxfam Australia then receives the converted Australian dollar amount.

Oxfam is using Blockchain technology in its projects. See this article on the Unblocked Cash pilot and its scaling up.
