YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Change is generally neither quick nor easy and only happens because people care enough to make a difference. Over the years, we have energized thousands of Native Americans and helped them and their communities move away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy and sustainable building practices.
But we need your help.
Today you have the opportunity to change history. Through our actions, we are writing a new chapter in the book that tells the tale of Natives and non-Natives. It is about a new way that honors the old ways and I want you to be part of writing of this new chapter. A chapter based, not on conquest and destruction, but on respect…on caring…and on the mutual sharing of our skills and resources.
Making positive change happen requires that all of us show up and participate and create that change we want to see. And we are doing that. Today and every day.
So please help us if you can. We are making a very real difference all across Indian country and I want you to be a part of this amazing journey.

Donations of Corporate Stock (i.e. Securities)
A gift of stock may provide more benefits than a cash gift. When you make a gift of stock, you eliminate your capital gains tax that would be due upon selling the stock. In addition, we convert the stock to cash with which we will use to support our mission.
A donation of stock may be right for you if:
A. You own stock that has risen in value. A highly appreciated stock, when sold, will result in a larger tax obligation. However, through donating it, you will avoid that capital gains tax and as a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we are not obligated by capital gains tax.
B. You'd like to retain your cash assets and maximize your deduction. You also receive a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock that you’ve owned for more than one year.
To begin the process of donating stock, please download our Giving Stocks form and follow the instructions at the bottom.
Donations of Property and Other Items
We encourage you to be versatile in your giving. Gifts of property, vehicles and other assets can be great ways to support our mission! Please contact us directly if you are considering giving these types of gifts.
Leave a Legacy – Bequests and Beneficiaries
A bequest is generally a gift through a will or living trust. It is simple to do – just name RCR as a beneficiary of a set amount of funds or as a percentage of your estate. You can also name RCR as a beneficiary on life insurance policies, retirement accounts or other financial investments.
Cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin
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: All cryptocurrency donations made to Red Cloud Renewable are non-refundable. Please only send currencies listed on the widget, do not send unsupported currencies. You can learn more by visiting The Giving Block’s FAQ and the IRS regulations about Charitable Donations of virtual currencies. Visit RCR's donation page on TGB's website.
