Charitable gift cards have exploded since 2006. Instead of buying a physical gift you aren’t sure your friends will like (see article “Physical Gifts Miss Satisfaction 20% of the Time”), charitable gift cards allow the recipient to pick the nonprofit of their choice to receive the contribution.
Yet, Philanthropedia’s charitable gift cards go one step further…
Donate to a Group of Nonprofits
While most charitable gift cards only allow you to choose one nonprofit to receive the money, Philanthropedia’s gift cards allow the recipient to choose a group of nonprofits to give to.
Philanthropedia has developed an innovative way to give to charities more strategically: through a mutual fund. For each cause, we bundle the top rated nonprofits into one fund so you can diversify your allocation across a group of great nonprofits, all in one transaction. So, instead of trying to decide which nonprofit to support (out of the million plus that exist), gift card recipients can make their contribution to one of these funds in a cause they care about.
Philanthropedia gift card recipients can choose from fifteen social cause mutual funds, including climate change, arts and culture, Haiti disaster relief, and more.
And here’s one more added bonus: Philanthropedia’s gift cards simplify the selection process because we’ve already done the research and vetting process for you. We have devised a rigorous methodology, crowd-sourcing hundreds of experts’ opinions, to identify the top nonprofits in different social causes. With an average of 17 years of experience in the field, these experts recommend nonprofits they believe are the top in their field. So, because we only display top nonprofits, the recipient of the gift card will have a much easier and enjoyable experience choosing the nonprofits they want to give to.
