Gift cards go philanthropic with The Dallas Foundation

December 07, 2012

The gift-giving season is officially upon us. Our longtime client The Dallas Foundation, who has been "Here for Good" since 1929, offers a gift card with a novel twist for those folks on your list who are hard to buy for.

The community foundation’s Giving for Good Cards are similar to retail gift cards, but instead of being used for merchandise or services, they are redeemable as donations to nonprofit organizations. Dollars may be allocated to benefit any 501(c)(3) public charity in the United States online, by mail or in person.

The cards come in myriad designs or can be customized to your liking. As a bonus, the card buyer receives a charitable tax deduction.

During the 2011 holiday season, individuals and corporations bought more than $60,000 in Giving for Good Cards, and they are expected to exceed that in 2012. For more information, contact The Dallas Foundation at 214-741-9898 or visit dallasfoundation.org.
