‘Tis the season for being thankful and giving back. With the economy in a recession, we at Philanthropedia think it’s more important than ever for individuals to think strategically about making their nonprofit contributions go farther. Just this week, Philanthropedia launched a charitable gift card so that in the spirit of giving, donors can support a social cause and give a gift at the same time. We see three main benefits to these gift cards:
- You can give back to society by making a strategic donation
- You get the tax benefit of giving a charitable contribution
- You are able to give a unique gift to someone you care about
Because gift cards can be purchased for as little as $5, they make great stocking stuffers, gifts for coworkers, or any friends and family members. Even $5 can make a difference because we combine it with all of the other donations coming through our site to support some of the strongest nonprofits. By pooling our resources to support these great nonprofits, we can make a bigger impact within an entire sector.
As you make your holiday list and check it twice, we encourage you to consider combining your charitable giving for the year with your annual gift giving to friends and family. Let’s support nonprofits through the recession by thinking giving season rather than traditional holiday season this year.
