Donating Directly to Orgs

Donate your crypto to a nonprofit from your Ethereum Wallet

What is a Direct Donation?

A Direct Donation is a gift made from your connected wallet to a nonprofit.
A donation is an irrevocable gift of cryptocurrency to Endaoment. We take your contribution, exchange it for USDC via decentralized exchange provider Uniswap, and route it to the charity of your choice (funds delivered as USDC or USD per their preference). After the exchange is completed, we email you a tax-deductible receipt detailing your gift if requested.

Step 1: Search for the Organization

Navigate to Endaoment and connect your wallet. Then, click within the search bar in the upper left-hand corner of the window. Search for the organization of your choice and click to be brought to their Endaoment profile.
NOTE: If an organization's smart contract has not been deployed yet, Endaoment will ask for you to help cover the deployment cost for creating the organization's composable contract address. If that's the case, see "Onboarding an Organization" below, otherwise skip to Step 2: Input Donation Information. You will be able to tell if this is required based on the Not Deployed flag which can be found under the organization's name on their profile page.

Step 1.5: Onboarding an Organization (if needed)

Onboarding an organization is a one-time process that will allow you (and all other Endaoment users) to recommend grants and make donations to that org. You'll be automatically prompted to deploy the organization's contract if needed.
A pop-up displaying the cost estimate of deploying an address for the organization will appear. Simply sign the transaction using your wallet, and once that completes, the org's smart contract will be deployed.

Step 2: Input Donation Information

At this point, you'll have the opportunity to determine the size of the donation you would like to make to your chosen organization as well as the asset you'd like to give.
On the Organization's profile page, click Donate Now.
Now be sure to choose the correct asset you'd like to donate and whether or not you'd like to receive a tax receipt. Once you have finished entering the data, adjust your tax information if needed and click Proceed to Confirmation, finally click Donate, and sign the transaction with your wallet.
All donations made via Endaoment are tax-deductible, and cannot in any way pay for non-tax-deductible gifts or obligations.
Non-tax-deductible gifts are things like tickets to a gala, or attendance at a golf outing (learn more at the IRS website). Signing this statement with your wallet affirms that you are not receiving any benefit that would cause the donation to be non-tax-deductible as required by law. By agreeing to our terms, you are agreeing to the below:
This grant recommendation does not represent the payment of any pledge or other financial obligation. I/we will not accept any benefits or privileges offered in connection with these grants, including good and services (such as auction items), admission to charitable events, dues, or membership, other than a religious institution. This grant is not intended to be combined with my/our personal check to support my/our attendance, or that of others, at a charity's event. I agree the following donation is irrevocable and for the charitable, educational, or religious purposes under the sole discretion of Endaoment.
When that transaction completes (click the transaction modal to view the ethe, you will have completed your direct donation! Data on the org's profile page will update accordingly, and funds will be transfered to the organization once our diligence process is completed.
