Last year COTS served 1,210 people in 462 families. Of all the heartbeats we touch in a given year, nearly 60% are children.
When you donate to COTS, 83 cents of every dollar goes directly to the programs and services that provide families with hope and stability.

Crypto Philanthropy is a new and thrilling fundraising avenue for nonprofit organizations like COTS. With more than 220 million crypto users worldwide and the value of many cryptocurrencies rising, the crypto community is in a position to make a wide-reaching impact through philanthropy. Donating crypto is also one of the most tax-efficient ways for individuals to support COTS.
Crypto donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to give to charity. Your crypto donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law if you pay taxes in the U.S. By making a charitable gift, you may also be eligible to significantly reduce what you would otherwise owe in capital gains taxes.
This is because donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support COTS.
