Your donation of cryptocurrency is facilitated through our partner, FreeWill Impact Fund, a 501(c)3 that specializes in receiving gifts of cryptocurrency. Your charitable gift receipt will come from FreeWill Impact Fund.

Many of our donors have worked with their families or advisors to create a donor-advised fund (DAF). It is like an investment account that is set up for the sole purpose of supporting charities. Individuals can contribute cash, stocks, or other assets to the DAF and receive an immediate tax deduction. Those funds are invested for tax-free growth and the individual can recommend donations to charities of their choice over time. 
And you can contact our Fund and Gift ServicesTeam to direct that gift to the program or area of the University of Alaska that means the most to you.
