What is Give Not Gift?

GiveNotGift is a new site, rethinking the gift certificate as a force for good. You buy the certificate. Then, your loved one gets to go on an all-out giving spree, choosing which cause gets the funds.

Where does Give Certificate money go?

Give Certificate proceeds go into a dedicated, 501(c)(3) public non-profit bank account until they are redeemed. When a Give Certificate is redeemed, 100% of the funds are sent to the specified charity within 90 days.

Where does the processing fee or ‘tip’ go?

The processing fee goes toward covering our expenses like maintaining this website in addition to finding, working with and promoting great causes.

Is my contribution tax-deductible.

Yes. When Give Not Gift officially opens for business in September 2022, Give Certificate purchases will be tax-deductible.

What is our cause criteria?

We think of ourselves as citizens of Earth, and our civic duty is to defend it. We know we can help people, animals, and our home planet by curating causes with certain values that you can easily find on our platform. We also know that we can’t do it alone.

We believe that we can come together and help each other, learn from each other, without borders or walls. We believe in the power of empowerment, especially youth empowerment. The future citizens of Earth are young, and they deserve better. We respect all religions, however, we are religiously agnostic. We stand for progress, liberalism, environment, science, and equality.

It is with these values in mind that we set out on our mission. We also look for causes that might teach us a thing or two about ourselves and others. We bring our causes together at Give Not Gift with the hope that it will bring humanity, animals and Earth even closer together.
