Charitable Gifts

The Giving Gifts

For recipients who prefer to give rather than receive, consider make a charitable donation to one of the organizations below. For more ideas, don’t forget to check out our list from last year.


The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund – Adopt a gorilla (or two) for the animal lover you know. The adoption allows “courageous trackers and anti-poaching patrols to continue to protect the 380 critically endangered mountain gorillas in the Virungas seven days a week.”

Make-A-Wish Foundation – This well-known organization has been granting wishes for almost 30 years.

The Nature Conservancy – The Nature Conservancy has a variety of gift options, from trees in Brazil to an acre in Australia.

Mercy Corps – Pick out a Mercy Kit that will help someone in need – whether it be a food kit for a family who just survived a natural disaster or a women in a developing country who is starting her own business.

Carbonfund.org – Give your eco-minded friend or family member the gift of carbon neutrality.

TisBest – Too many charities to choose from? Get a gift card from TisBest, and let the recipient decide.

    Thank you so much for letting folks know about charitable alternatives in gift giving. TisBest Philanthropy offers the highest quality charity gift cards, with over 50 different standard designs, or you can upload your own photo, and you can check the status to see when a gift card is spent and on which charity. Cards can be sent by email, printed on your printer or printed on recycled plastic and sent by mail.

    We appreciate all of our supporters like you who are helping get out the word about this great gift alternative in a world filled to the rim with “stuff”. More for charity, less for the landfill!
