When you donate to BCM, you are transforming lives and our community.
Donate Investments Directly
By contributing stock, you avoid paying capital gains tax on the increased value of the stock and receive an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift. In most circumstances, you must have owned the stock for more than one year for these benefits.
To Donate Stock:
DTC Clearing Number: 0352
Account Name: Buckhead Christian Ministry
Account Number: 05047120
BCM accepts cryptocurrency!
Join BCM by donating your Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), Gemini Dollars (GUSD) and more! 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 and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax-efficient ways to support your favorite cause.
Please note that donations made through this link support BCM’s mission and your gift will be used where it is needed most. The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)3 charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information.
If you want to learn more about how donating crypto can lower your taxes, check out thegivingblock.com/faq. Talk to a crypto-savvy tax professional or connect with The Giving Block to get connected with one. If you have any questions about BCM or your donation, please reach out to [email protected] for more information. Thank you!

Workplace Giving and Matching Programs
Did you know that it is possible for your employer to match, double, or even triple your gift? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match most charitable contributions made by their employees, even if you are retired. BCM has implemented a new tool where you are able to search to see if your gift can be matched.
Enter your employer’s name in the search box and there will be an option to fill out a form to inform your employer about your gift. Don’t see your employer? There is an option to “add your employer” to submit a request.
If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]. Thank you!
