Give the Gift of Giving

Giving for Good cards allow recipients to support their favorite charity and boost philanthropic giving in local communities

Giving for Good cards look like traditional retail gift cards, except their value can be donated to any 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the United States. People who give the gift of giving with a Giving for Good card also receive a charitable tax deduction for the amount purchased.

Since The Dallas Foundation introduced them in 2011, Giving for Good cards have been used for more than $413,000 in donations to nonprofits in North Texas and across the country.

Additional designs are also available, and cards can be customized to celebrate special occasions or to recognize clients and exceptional employees. Click here to order or redeem.
