Support elephant conservation with your crypto
At Save the Elephants, we’re always exploring innovative avenues to support our mission to secure a future for elephants and to offer ways to donate to our cause which match our supporters’ preferences. STE accepts cryptocurrency donations via our fiscal sponsor, the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN).
When you make a crypto donation, you’ll be donating to our US fiscal sponsor, Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN), who utilise The Giving Block platform. WCN will pass on 100% of your donation, converted to US dollars, to STE.
IMPORTANT: to ensure that your donation reaches Save the Elephants, please remember to tick the ‘Add a note to your donation’ checkbox and include the message: “Donate 100% of my donation to Save the Elephants.”
If you are based in the US, you could even benefit from a tax deduction on your donation. Please read our FAQs section below. For any queries, please email [email protected].

For our supporters based in the US, here’s an added incentive: contributions made through WCN may qualify for tax deductions. Cryptocurrencies are classified as property in the US, and your donation to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit such as WCN could be eligible for tax benefits. Consult with your tax advisor for more details.
The Giving Block generates tax receipts for donors who opt to receive one. These donors will receive their tax acknowledgment receipts via email. Please note that it remains your responsibility to understand whether you are eligible to claim tax deductions in the US.
Adding the note ensures that 100% of your contribution goes to Save the Elephants. It’s a crucial step in directing your support where it’s needed most.
