Give the Gift of Giving on #GivingTuesday

November 28, 2017

DALLAS (November 28) – On #GivingTuesday, The Dallas Foundation is encouraging North Texans to give friends, family and co-workers a Giving for Good card as a gift. Giving for Good cards work like traditional retail gift cards, except their value can be donated to any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the United States, including places of worship.

Since The Dallas Foundation introduced Giving for Good cards in 2011, more than $500,000 have been donated to nonprofits in North Texas and across the country. People who purchase a Giving for Good card also receive a charitable tax deduction for the amount purchased. 

“Giving for Good cards embody the spirit of the holidays,” said Helen Holman, chief philanthropy officer for The Dallas Foundation. “They encourage others to experience philanthropy firsthand, while boosting philanthropic giving in local communities during the holiday season and year-round.”

Recipients may redeem the cards online via or give the cards directly to a nonprofit, including dropping them in a church collection basket.

In addition to holiday-themed designs, cards may be customized to celebrate special occasions or to recognize clients and exceptional employees. 

Giving for Good Cards can be purchased online at
