On My Radar: Catalogue for Philanthropy Gift Cards - give the give of charity and let your recipient decide where the funds go
This season consider a Catalogue of Philanthropy gift card for the Greater Washington area. It works just like a traditional gift card for a website or store; but rather than spend the contents, the recipient donates it to the DC, Maryland and Virginia charities of their choosing. You can purchase a card for a friend or family member in denominations of $25, $50, $100, $150, and up and they will send it to them, along with instructions for visiting their website and learning about the great nonprofits in their network. Redeeming the card is simple: just click “donate” on any charity’s page and select a donation amount. A great and benevolent alternative to those unwanted holiday gifts. Learn more HERE.
