Advance Health Innovation - Donate Cryptocurrency

Our Purpose

Too many of us have lost loved ones or watched them struggle with a disease while their doctors search for answers.  The answer may be in the lab of a researcher or developing at a local start-up.

With support from AZBio, AZAdvances, part of the Opportunity Through Entrepreneurship Foundation, (OTEF), works with Arizona researchers and early-stage companies to develop discoveries and advance health innovations by providing the mentoring support and seed funding that is needed to accelerate the process.

Our $250 Million Goal 

Arizona innovators are working on life saving and life changing treatments that can make life better for people in Arizona and around the world.

Unfortunately, when funding is needed to take a discovery and develop it into a product or service that can make life better for the people who need it, investors may view the project as “too early” or “too risky.”

With a goal of $200 million, the AZAdvances Legacy Endowment has the ability, when fully capitalized and invested, to annually provide $10 million in funding into early stage life science companies in Arizona forever.

With a goal of $50 million, the AZAdvances Today Fund will provide up to $10 million per year in funding while the endowment matures.  

Together, the two funds are designed to help health discoveries enter into  development so that they can become health innovations that have the  potential to help people today and for generations to come. 

Your Opportunity

As a cryptocurrency investor, you understand the power of innovation. By donating cryptocurrency, you can make an important difference in the race to develop the treatments and cures that people are waiting for.

Join us in advancing health innovation  by donating your crypto.  Thanks to our partnership with The Giving Block we can accept dozens of the world’s leading cryptocurrencies. Consult with your financial planner to determine your tax benefits.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)3 charities like OTEF receive the same tax treatment as stocks. 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. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information. 

Donating crypto to OTEF

Supporting OTEF is an investment in creating hope. OTEF makes an impact with three focused initiatives. AZAdvances provides funding and support to life science researchers and entrepreneurs working on life changing and life saving innovations. AZAdvances also provides students the opportunity to make connections and intern with industry leaders as they prepare to embark on their careers.

Please note that donations made through this link support OTEF’s entire mission and will not be designated to a specific initiative . Your gift will be used where it is needed most. If you would like to designate your donation to AZAdvances or another OTEF program, please contact us.
