Protect Every Vote. Protect Every Voter.
Your crypto donation will help us achieve our goal: US elections that are fair, secure, and transparent so every voice is heard.
We teach voters, activists, and advocates to take concrete action to help ensure that votes are counted fairly and accurately. We support voters in marginalized communities, election officials and staff, and the public by:
- Documenting election evidence to defend election staff against false accusations.
- Advocating for best practices in election administration.
- Mobilizing and supporting volunteers to protect the elections.
Nearly all votes in the U.S. are tabulated by vulnerable software. Consequently, Scrutineers promotes robust, objective election audits to verify the accuracy of vote counts.
Support Scrutineers with your charitable gift of cryptocurrency. We not only accept Bitcoin and Ethereum, but over one hundred other leading cryptocurrencies. See below.

Did You Know?
Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event in the U.S., 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 our cause. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return.
Donating cryptocurrency you have owned for more than one year and that has increased in value may provide better tax benefits than selling the asset and giving cash.
Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the investment. You can avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in value over the original cost of the crypto.
The difference is sometimes more than 30%.
If you want to learn more about how donating crypto can lower your taxes, please reach out to a crypto-savvy tax professional or The Giving Block team at email@example.com. If one of the reasons you are donating is for tax benefits, we strongly encourage you to consult with your financial advisor before giving.
Scrutineers does unique work in the election protection movement. Specifically, we’re building national Fairness Force to provide public oversight to our elections by teaching, training, mobilizing, and supporting people to take meaningful individual and group action.
Indeed, even people who don’t have voting rights due to citizenship status, age, or having had their voting rights revoked can be powerful participants in the electoral process by working with us.
We keep our overhead low by operating entirely online, so your donation will go a long way.
The Scrutineers Community is the place where volunteers, activists, and seasoned election experts come together to protect the US elections from interference, discrimination, and errors. We’re stepping up to play our role right now in advancing and protecting free and fair elections. Scrutineers is here to serve as a smart, informed, and well-trained Fairness Force on the ground and online.
We’re voting rights activists, election security experts, and poll workers. Election officials, candidates and campaign volunteers. Parents and grandparents, students and teachers. Voters and those who aren’t allowed to vote. We’re people who believe that fair and accurate elections are essential to the future of our nation.
Did you know …? For the past two decades, increased computerization of our election processes has increased vulnerabilities to large-scale error and manipulation. Watch this two-minute video to learn more.
