During this time of year, many individuals and families want to volunteer, donate an in-kind gift, or weave the importance of giving into their holiday traditions. Discover new ways to give back and engage with the community this holiday season.

Ways to Give Back During the Holidays

Alternative Ways to Support Nonprofits this Holiday Season

  • Hosting a holiday gathering or office party? Consider making DIY kits together for community members who need support.

  • Doing a holiday gift exchange? Ask for, or give, the gift of charity instead. Tell your coworkers or family you’d like a monetary donation in your name for a favorite cause.

  • Make or buy treats as a thank you for nonprofit staff. Contact your favorite agency that provides a much-needed service and offer to give small gifts or gift cards to their employees.

  • Create a culture of giving within your family this holiday season. Learn more in our Family Philanthropy Guide
