Q: Why donate Cryptocurrency?

A: Being a steward of great resource is a privilege. Use that power to help others.

If you’ve had some big wins and you want to share the love, it’s easy to donate directly from your cryptocurrency holding rather than convert to fiat.

Thorough our partners at The Giving Block, we accept the following cryptocurrencies:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Ether (ETH)
  • Litecoin (LTC)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Zcash (ZEC)
  • Gemini Dollar (GUSD)
  • Basic Attention Token (BAT)
  • Chainlink (LINK)
  • 0x (ZRX)
  • Storj (STORJ)
  • Dai (DAI)
  • Amp (AMP)
  • The Graph (GRT)
  • UMA (UMA)
  • 1inch (1INCH)

Why give to Payton?

We find grassroots charities doing amazing work transforming the lives of vulnerable people with:

  • Health and wellbeing,
  • Housing and community
  • Education and empowerment

and we help provide some of the funding they so desperately need. We draw on our own resources and encourage our networks to do the same. 100% of donations to the Foundation are passed on to our amazing charity partners without any fees. And you can specify which one you want your donation to go to.

Check out our partners here.

Why not give directly?

You can.  But you can trust that all our charity partners are thoroughly checked out and monitored by us to ensure your donation is being used effectively.

It’s easy

Using the Giving Block widget on this page, simply select the crypto currency you’d like to give and the amount and you will receive an instant tax receipt via email.

If you prefer, you can remain anonymous.  Or, if you’d like to receive email updates, just tick the box.

Wallet Address

When using The Giving Block widget you’ll notice that a new wallet address is created every time. This is because The Giving Block uses dynamic wallet addresses.

This is done to protect your privacy and ours. Doing so helps prevents third parties from viewing all of your transaction history simply by copying and pasting the wallet address or TXID into a block explorer. All addresses that are generated are associated with your donor information AND ours forever. This means that you can reuse the address as often as you’d like or you can generate a new one each time.

It’s up to you. In some cases, users want to re-use an address because they’ve added it as a payout address in an app or smart contract.

Note that for ETH, after the first donation is sent, the address is converted to a smart contract.

It’s tax efficient


Donations in excess of the equivalent of AUD$2 are tax deductible. You will get a receipt which you can use to claim on your Australian tax return. You will however, need to declare any capital gain or loss on the disposal of your crypto currency at market value. But you will still be in front.

Let me illustrate with an example: If you donated a Bitcoin at $35,000 that you purchased for $25,000 you would have a capital gain of $10,000.

If you held the currency for more than 12 months, then you would only pay tax on half that gain – $5,000. But you would get a tax deduction for the full $35,000, so you would end up with a net deduction of $30,000 on your tax return. Of course, you will need to see a tax adviser to find out how this applies to your specific circumstances. ATO guidance is here.

United States

Unfortunately, as we are not a 501(c)3 charity, donations from US donors are not tax effective in the US. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for clarification.

Payton Foundation Supporting Vulnerable Women

Te-Kworo Foundation


Provide education and health care to teenage girls who are pregnant and/or have small children as a result of being abducted and forced into child marriage by the LRA during the recent war. Ugandan culture places very little value on educating girls, especially if they have children.

Te-Kworo believe that every girl has the right to an education as a means to empower them to get out of poverty. They also provide maternal health services.

Every day in Uganda: 15 women die from pregnancy and childbirth related causes, 94 babies are stillborn and 81 newborn babies die.

These deaths are preventable. Thanks to the establishment of the Maternal & Child Health project in 2016, there has been a 5X improvement in safe births.

Watoto Neighbourhood Mothers


The program supports Ugandan and South Sudanese women who are caring for children in extreme circumstances. Many of whom are HIV+ and victims of abuse. Watoto endeavour to restore dignity to these women, providing food, clothing, shelter and medical care, HIV/AIDS care.

Through adult literacy classes, discipleship, business skills training and micro loans, these mothers are empowered to earn a living and break the cycle of vulnerability.

This program empowers Ugandan women by teaching them to read, write and care for their children as well as a practical skill to enable them to earn a living. All of these things restore her dignity. “Watoto is a place where vulnerable women are redeemed.” Vivien – program graduate.

Fusion Village


This unique program provides therapeutic live-in care which enables vulnerable young families to be supported in a safe and therapeutic home. With a live in family providing 24/7 support, role modelling healthy family dynamics and building relationships.

Young mothers aged 16 to 24 and their children will be able to stay here for 18 – 24 months, accessing the services through homelessness entry points.

It’s a reminder that for complex needs there are no easy fixes. This program provides the most important intervention these young girls need: stable housing combined with individualized support and education.

The young mothers are supported through antenatal and post-natal care, parenting, nutrition, and early childhood care with supports like specialist parenting courses available to learn essential life and parenting skills, preparing them for the transition to independent living and the future they want for their family.

The Babes Project


Empowers vulnerable mothers to face their fears, tears and challenges, through pregnancy and the first crucial year of baby’s life.

The team support vulnerable women in the perinatal period; ensuring they are connected to essential services and providing the social, emotional and practical support they need.

By addressing the challenges she faces and allowing space for her to create a future for herself and her children, the team have seen women thrive in their early parenting, leading to positive outcomes for their family.

Bridge It


The Cocoon provides supported accomodation to young women (18-25) exiting the foster system who would otherwise be homeless.

Onsite youth mentors living at the property help create a therapeutic community with wrap around supports including access to training, education, employment wellbeing and living skills sessions. The young women will be supported to transition into long term housing at the end of their 12-month stay.

The Sanctuary provides safe, long term, accomodation for women experiencing homelessness as a result of a mental disability.

Evolve Help Ukraine


Many Ukrainian refugees have made their way to Australia. Often the women and children travel first and their husbands follow later. When they arrive they usually have nothing but the clothes on their backs.

Evolve are a local group who help them find accomodation and employment and community as they settle in to their new lives.

Edmund Rice Center Nairobi

Educating girls and boys
Scholarships – Kenya

We believe in the value of an education.

The center cares for disabled children from some of the poorest families in Nairobi living in the largest slum in Africa – Kibera. We are partnering with the ERCN to ensure the siblings of the children they support can also access an education and nutrition throughout the year.

Often a Kenyan child’s only meal is the one they get at school. When we discovered that children come back to school after the holidays weighing less, we knew we needed to provide a school holiday program as well.

Zoe Child Rescue

Vocational training – Thailand

It’s hard to believe that in today’s society, slavery is more prevalent than at any time in history. Nefarious characters will visit villages in Myanmar and Laos and convince starving families that their child will be educated and given a job in the city and that they will be able to send money back home.

Typically, these children end up in forced labour on fishing boats, enforced begging in cities or forced prostitution and the families never see their children again.

People are not goods that can be bought and sold; We are partnering with Zoe to see an end to this criminal activity and destruction of life.

Zoe’s Vocational Training Program works with children who cannot attend regular school because they are still in danger or in witness protection or have never attended school and will not thrive in that environment.

Over 9 weeks, these children are equipped with the skills they need to access jobs, reducing their vulnerability to re-trafficking.
