The Kevin Richardson Foundation is a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to the conservation of lions and their habitat in Africa. The Foundation was founded in response to the alarming decline in wild lion populations.

The Foundation works to protect lions by purchasing land where they can roam free, and by working with local communities to reduce human-wildlife conflict. They also support anti-poaching efforts, scientific research and run education programmes to raise awareness of the importance of conserving this iconic specie.

One way you can help the Kevin Richardson Foundation is by donating cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency donations are fast, easy and secure, and they go a long way in helping the Foundation to achieve its goals.

IMPORTANT: Do not send unsupported currencies or NFTs to any Ethereum address generated using The Giving Block Widget. Doing so will result in the donation being lost and is not recoverable

Tax Benefits

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event. Donors do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated crypto that is donated and can typically deduct the fair market value of the donation on their taxes. This often makes Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support your favorite cause. Talk to a crypto-savvy tax professional or connect with The Giving Block to get connected with one. If you want to learn more about how donating crypto can lower your taxes, check out

Refund Policy

We strongly suggest that you explicitly treat all cryptocurrency donations as final and do not offer refunds. Also make it clear that no goods, services or airdrops will be offered in exchange for cryptocurrency donations. An example of our donation refund policy is here.


What happens if I want to donate using an unsupported currency?

Unfortunately you cannot donate using an unsupported currency with The Giving Block widget. We do have some workarounds for large donations, please reach out using our contact form and let us know:

  • The organization that you wish to support
  • The cryptocurrency you wish to donate
  • The amount that you wish to donate

And our giving team will discuss alternative arrangements for donating.

Why am I able to send an unsupported cryptocurrency?
ERC-20 protocols do not allow for us to prevent or stop unsupported currency deposits and your wallet or exchange isn’t able to determine if the currency is supported. You should always only send the cryptocurrency that matches the crypto on The Giving Block widget – only send ETH to the ETH address, only send BAT to the BAT address etc.
What happens if I send BEP20 tokens to an Ethereum address with The Giving Block?
Do not under any circumstances send an BEP20 token to an ETH address generated from The Giving Block widget. Your tokens will be lost and will not be recoverable.
What happens if I send ERC20 Tokens on a layer 2 sidechain to an ETH address with The Giving Block

Cryptocurrencies on Ethereum layer 2 sidechains have similar addresses to Ethereum, but are not the same. These do not run directly on the Ethereum mainnet.

Do not under any circumstances send unsupported ERC20 Tokens on a layer 2 sidechain (Such as tokens on the Polygon network) to an ETH address generated from The Giving Block widget. Your NFT will be lost and will not be recoverable.

Can I recover unsupported ERC-20's sent to a Charity or nonprofit?

If you send any digital asset or cryptocurrency to an ETH address that are not supported they will be lost and there is no way for the charity to receive the assets or you to recover them. It is always important to ensure that you are only sending an asset that matches the asset that you have chosen on the donation widget.

The Giving Block is constantly adding for cryptocurrencies that are listed on the Gemini exchange as often as we can.

Why can't The Giving Block or the charity/nonprofit send these funds back?
It is not possible to reverse a transaction on the Ethereum blockchain, and it does not require permission in order to receive a digital asset such as cryptocurrency. If you made a donation via an exchange, it’s likely that your transactions were batched, making it difficult if not impossible to show your originating wallet address.
What happens if I send ERC-721 Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to an Ethereum address with The Giving Block
BEP20 Tokens (i.e those on Binance Smart Chain) use a similar address to Ethereum and extend the ERC-20 standard. These are not currently supported by The Giving Block.

Do not under any circumstances send an NFT to an ETH address generated from The Giving Block widget. Your NFT will be lost and will not be recoverable.
