OMF Accepts Donations of Cryptocurrency! 

Mission Statement

Open Medicine Foundation has the bold mission of solving and breaking the cycle of chronic complex diseases like ME/CFS, Long COVID / Post-Treatment COVID, Post-Treatment Lyme, and others with a post infectious/post-trigger onset. Vital to this mission is to financially support outcome-directed research at global centers that work openly, urgently, and collaboratively with each other (and the broader research community of scientists and clinicians), and eventually translate findings to treatments.

Why Donate Crypto to Open Medicine Foundation?

OMF provides an opportunity for cryptocurrency investors to significantly contribute to solving these big global health problems impacting millions of patients, helping to speed up research by top researchers, advancing technology innovations in research and clinical care, and educating physicians. Just as cryptocurrency is at the forefront of innovative financial instruments, OMF is at the forefront of innovations in research and healthcare.

We are doubling down on cryptocurrency and will use these contributions to fund research that tackles the following:

  • Create a clear understanding of the illnesses at a molecular level and systems understanding of the pathways and cause/effect mechanisms
  • Identify biomarkers for testing and treatments and prevention.
  • Continue development of a state-of-the-art research platform for computational analysis, data curation, and data sharing.
  • Provide a data-driven model of understanding of the illnesses that can be applied consistently across the globe.
  • Make use of experts, technologies, and research centers that can most cost effectively and quickly advance understanding and innovation.
  • Provide a workable framework for clinicians and patients.
  • Apply this model of understanding to other similar diseases, to expand our global collective knowledge.

Save on your Taxes by Donating Crypto

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donation.

Over 20 million are disabled by ME/CFS worldwide – your crypto donation boosts research and brings hope.
